Some Phantoms that GM...

I think the Monte Camino is bad ass. B)

I do too but the olds has nicer flowing lines and I dont like the chevy logo on the front of the MC... it looks out of place. I think it should be a MC logo rather than the chevy logo

Oh my, a Buick GSX El Camino! I must have this vehicle! I shall park it next to my 1970 Buick Skylark Sport Wagon whenever I get around to buying it and turning it into a saturn yellow Buick GSXpress Wagon :lol:

WOW!!!

Camino you never fail to impress. I'm thinking the best one is the Poncho LeMansCamino. :D

The GN is pretty sweet too but doesn't work as well for some reason.

SWEET post, Camino...thanks for sharing!

I've seen that MC Camino before ... believe that front end is the '72 MC front fascia....

Some of those others look absolutely splendidly cool, too ... sure is too bad GM didn't produce those :).

Which Lemans?

The GN just suffers from some rough details (bowtie on grille etc.) I've always wanted to build a true GNX version. :AH-HA_wink:

The yellow Pontiac is not a LeMans? :mellow: (I second Josh's motion!)

It is. It was built by a dealer from a new Lemans sedan and a new El Camino in '68 to lobby Pontiac to offer it as a production model.

However, The black one on the far right is also Lemans -based. Late '70s early 80s style. I like the way it looks. Now if the '68 was based on a GTO... :AH-HA_wink:

Now that the great-looking-but-way-overpriced SSR is done with, I can only hope GM has it in them to reintroduce the Chevy El Camino and GMC Caballero/Sprint (btw, give a new name for the GMC please?).

Call it Syclone, give it outrageous styling, standard AWD, and twin turbo HFV6 to differentiate from a value oriented, more upright, higher-volume, NAV6/V8/RWD El Camino.

True a GTO would be even cooler but hell, I'll take the LeMans. Wicked cool as is. The 80s Lemans I thought was a Grand Am for some reason.

All these cars are cool... YOU should build one yourself Camino. Make one off a '67 GTO. That woudl be pretty cool too IMO. :)

This idea has potential.

I have a few ideas...

I have always loved Phantoms and hated clones, so when I win the lottery...
