    They did bring it back. It's called the HSV Maloo. HSV stands for Holden Special Vehicles and it's the performance division of GM Holden Ltd in Australia.

    Here's the HSV Maloo R8:

    Feel free to import one from Aussieland if you want one badly enough. You're also welcome to put an 8-track player in it if you insist on 8-tracks.

    I will even take the non HSV version. as long as it has a LS based engine under the bonnet lol. I always looked forward to my Australia port visits so I could drool over all the "forbidden fruit" we cant get here stateside. lol

    GM does have some plans to bring back the El Camino. A year ago Chevy posted on their facebook that if you voted/ commented on a page they made on some random site and by such and such day if they reached X number of votes/ comments they would try to bring it back.

    Eh, even if it did get revived, I'd rather get an original and restore it.
