2016 Camaro & El Camino

Op-Ed by MonaroSS

GMI Contributor – 3 March 2013




Which direction should GM go? All new and modern, or continue developing the very popular retro style of the Gen5 Camaro? It’s a valid question, and one that has been asked many times in the threads of this forum. Just recently ChevroletRevived and…

Hey, It’s An El Camaromino!

SEMA has some pretty good treats this year, like this Camaro Ute. It’s quite clearly based on the Holden VE Ute that GM keeps teasing the non-Australian world with but with a slightly tweaked Camaro front end. The body is all Holden from the windshield back, and the official name is…

A Poem by Cindy Rose


An El Camino was outside my house
It never made a sound.
The smoothest ride in the neighborhood,
demure and not too proud.
I see you El Camino, looking slick, not past your prime
Makes me want to be behind the wheel, leave this all behind.

Get out from 'neath this grey storm cloud
An old man's angry veil
And drive into the sunset
With spirits setting sail.

Past the wildfires in my heart
Out of heats way
To the beauty of a cooler time
The darker night of day.

I see your colors red and white
I touch your bumpered chrome
Diamond, glittered, bright headlights
Steer me far from home.

El Camino, low and cool
Help me find my way
We'll drink Cervasa all the while
For Our Lady Guadelupe.

An El Camino was outside my house
It never made a sound
The smoothest ride in the neighborhood
Demure, and not too proud
I see you El Camino
Who is cruisin' who?
The girl who looks beyond the door
Or your driver with tattoos

El Camino, El Camino

Chevrolet

In 1911, William Durant enlisted Swiss-born racing star Louis Chevrolet to design a car, and in 1912 the new Chevrolet Motor Car Company introduced its first sedan with a long list of standard features. In 1915, Chevrolet introduced the 490 (priced at $490) to compete directly with the best-selling Ford Model T, and it was an instant success. By 1927, Chevrolet was the most popular American car. When WWII started, the division was building over 1.5 million vehicles per year. After the war, Chevrolet reclaimed its place as the best-selling brand. In 1953 Chevrolet launched what would become America's most successful sports car, the Corvette, and when Chevrolet introduced its legendary small-block V8 two years later, it quickly found its way into the Corvette. The 1963 Sting Ray, with its fully independent suspension, added to the Corvette's popularity and competitiveness. In 2009, the company released the Corvette ZR1, which boasts a supercharged 638 horsepower 6.2-liter LS9 V8. The compact, sporty Camaro debuted in 1967, and became another instant bestseller. In 2008, Chevrolet announced the return of the iconic car with the introduction of the 2010 Camaro SS—and logged over ten thousand pre-orders in less than three months. Today, Chevrolet continues to offer a car for nearly every market niche, and the company's nickname, 'Chevy,' shows the popular impact of this brand.

1970 Chevy El Camino SS 454

The El Camino wasn’t the first North American “coupe utility”—a concept that originated and still flourishes in Australia—but it’s certainly the most famous. And the SS 454 was the baddest El Camino to roll out of the factory wearing a bowtie, with a nearly unmanageable 450 horsepower, 7.4-liter V8 out front and very little weight over the rear axle. While not ideal from a traction standpoint, if you can get the rear tires to hook up you’ll be in for a treat, as the El Camino will blow through the quarter mile in less than 14 seconds—stock. The front sheetmetal is shared with the Chevelle/Malibu of the same era, replete with racing-style hood pins, racing stripes, and the blacked-out tailgate insert proudly proclaiming “SS 454” to whatever vehicle is choking on the El Camino’s tire smoke. Easily one of the best-looking of the extended El Camino family, it is definitely the most ferocious. While the original “ute” concept pictured a vehicle for farmers to take to church, this El Camino offers the more romantic notion that you could go tear up the dragstrip on Sunday, and haul a load of dirt on Monday !
