Just got back from a 47-day trip to Australia & New Zealand. Saw lots of these Holden Ute cars roaring around. The one's with V-8s sounded great.

The Holden sedans, and maybe the Ute in the truck series, are big in Australian V8 Supercars. Maybe I'll go see them here in Austin this May at the F-1 track.

They were planning on bringing it over like they did with the commador (g8), and manaro (gto). Every good GM car recently has came from holden. Even the camaro was from them. I want a ute so bad.

Not saying the camaro was good, until the LT1 and Z28. Cause before that they were sloppy pieces of crap that you cant see out of. Now their beast...you cant see out of.

If Pontiac didn't get killed off we were supposed to get it in 2007 as an 08 model.



Course if GM wanted to they could still bring it back and badge it as the neo El Camino. Which it should of been in the 1st place.
