Camino LS6

Look what I found

I love that, and I think that would have probably been hotter than the Impala SS off of which that was based. It would have been right there to catch the truck/SUV boom.

There's definitely a hole in the automotive landscape that only the El Camino can fill. I've seen El Camino-like conversions based off of 90-94 Luminas and 00-05 Impalas and Montes. They'd be smart to just bring the thing back already. Have it replace the standard cab, 2wd Colorado.

Cool, I have not seen those pictures before. What year was this shown as a concept? 1993?

There was a Lumina based ElCamino around the same time, also by GM Design. Pictures of that car are even harder to come by.

Man, those 90s B-Bodies really have a killer attitude in any body style, don't they?

I've seen the Lumina and even a Monte carlo based Camino, but they were aftermarket. This one is a true GM prototype that nearly made production(if the B bodies weren't cancelled it likely would have). They brought this one out for a cruise down Woodward when the production SSR debuted there, the two of them cruised together. The car is a 1994 model and appears to use the bed and rear window from the '78-87 El Camino, just about everything else is production Bbody.
