God help us, it's back!

The El Camino. That's right folks, I saw it with my own eyes. I thought that perhaps I was hallucinating since it was early in the morning and I hadn't finished my first cup of coffee yet. Unfortunately, I was able to verify its return simply by checking Chevy's website. Ugh.

The tackiest vehicle ever created has been put back on the market. Apparently Chevy thinks that renaming it the "SSR" will help its image. We can't be fooled though. It's just a souped up, extra-pretty El Camino wannabe.

To prevent copyright problems, I didn't take the picture from their website. If you want to see it with your own eyes, you can click here. Make sure to look at the yellow one in the second row down, second picture in from the left. See what I mean?

At least it's not quite as ugly as the Subaru Baja.

Happy driving,
Ms. V

There is a market out there for these vehicles, sadly.

For some reason there are people that find the idea of a pick-up truck with an inferiority complex to be appealing...

Maybe Jim Bob Duggar and his family of what is it up to now? 18? Will buy a few! They can put all those extra chill'uns in the back!

Oh man, both of those make me want to vomit.

I've actually had the ... pleasure ?? ... of seeing some of those bad boys in person, and if anything was vomit inducing, seriously, it's worse then the no-effort childbirth comments about Jim-Bob and his family.

Ugh. Someone in the area had an El Camino up for sale for awhile. I had to drive past it every morning to get to school. It was awful.

As Mr. Denesha would say, "What a sight for eye-sores!"
