New El Camino?

I just found out about this today, but apparently the El Camino has made a small comeback. Alright, it is not in the American market, or even called the same thing, but the "car/truck" still exists!

I know, seems odd to me too. Maybe it was a concept before they were shut down.

Looks like a Holden or something similar with a Pontiac grill and badges slapped on... (Same as what Pontiac did with the GTO and the G8)

That's exactly what it is, one of my neighbors has one, it's called the Holden Ute. Some people here even swap the front bumper/grille with the G8 to make it identical.

Holden is a "daughter" branch of GM and is located in Australia.
They have have done a lot of designing that then has been brought in to USA under Pontiac's name. The Ute is made and sold in Australia for a long time now.
