I came across this, and maybe it might change some minds of those who hate the Pontiac Pickup just because it has no bowtie logo on it.

A new Pontiac G8 “ute,” a sport truck yet to be named that’s an updated version of the classic Chevy El Camino, will go on sale in the fall. GM’s holding a contest to come up with the official name.

Perhaps they should use the one they already used, back in 1966.

You see, the G8 sport truck isn’t a new idea from Pontiac. It’s an old one. It’s actually an idea recycled from the sixties, from the days when the late John DeLorean was the General Manager of Pontiac.

In fact it's actually an old idea from Holden, who designed and sold the first car-based Pontiac Express 'sport truck' in 1929
