    Re: Pontiac G8 Pickup - El Camino Returns?

    The question I have is which way are they going to sell it?

    1. The homeowner's light pickup -- drive to work, and on the way home pick up 4 bales of pine straw.

    2. A Syclone replacement -- 0 to 60 in a ridiculously short period of time, but could only carry 200 pounds of cargo.

    I wonder if Pontiac will take on the Holden Sportwagon...it looks nice. A "car of desire" it was described as at the launch...oh the sales pitch...Must have....'coz the neighbours will have one ;D
