Olympic Gold Medalist Hearts El Caminos

Amanda Beard is one hell of a swimmer, racking up two gold medals at the Olympics and eight U.S. Championships. But she's also got a dirty little secret — she loves El Caminos. Even though she doesn't own one yet, she's plotting her next move and tells Autoweek all about it. The boys over at AW use the combination of… » 6/11/08 5:00pm 6/11/08 5:00pm

Second Tandem Axle Rabbitamino Discovered, They're Breeding

While woefully lacking in the mid mounted 500 cubic inch Cadillac engine and scissor doors department the first tandem axle VW Caddy we discovered had, this one succeeds in another area - it's an actual Rabbitamino. If you look carefully at the hind end of this one, you can see the telltale signs pointing out this… » 5/22/08 10:00am 5/22/08 10:00am

Corvettamino ZR-1 Is Pulling Our Leg, Still Awesome

Who needs a Pontiac G8 ST when you can have a bitchin' camino-ized C4 Corvette ZR-1? Nobody that's who. Fortunately for our still beating hearts, this is not really a ZR-1 turned truck/car — it's an '84 Vette smooshed together with a '91 with custom molds and bodywork to create that smooth Vettamino effect. According… » 5/08/08 11:20am 5/08/08 11:20am

1970 Chevrolet El Camino 454 Super Sport

Though many have been entered and some have been trimmed, we have only one space left in the Jalopnik Fantasy Garage. One more bay into which we may slide any dream machine we can think of. To this point it has been a journey of discovery, history, humor, debate, outrage and delight, but still there remains only one… » 4/29/08 12:40pm 4/29/08 12:40pm

The Problem With The Pontiac G8 El Camino

We love the idea of the 2010 Pontiac G8 El Camino, this much goes without saying, but there's been a lot of hemming and hawing about the long term viability of the product from a business perspective. Motor City Blog Man Todd Lassa has a theory on the General's strategy and it kind of makes sense to us. Remember when… » 3/27/08 3:30pm 3/27/08 3:30pm

Rollsachero, Or, How To Put Grey Poupon On Your Hot Dog

We have covered the Rolls Royce that knows how to party before, but on this Maximum El Camino Day we have a new argument for naming it, and much better pictures. Though Rolls' are pretty cars with a lovely pedigree that leak oil on your garage floor, picking one from another in the malaise era is tough, so we're just… » 3/17/08 2:45pm 3/17/08 2:45pm

Freakshow, The Custom Camino From Hello Kitty Hell

Freakshow has our noodle in a bind. There's not much left of the original '64 Chevy C-10, but it definitely says "1964 Chevy Pickup" on the placard. By all rights it should be the absolute baddest truck/car in the show hands down with a blown 354 cubic inch hemi, six Stromberg 97 carbs, the sickest custom headers… » 3/11/08 1:45pm 3/11/08 1:45pm

Like the XR-3 Hybrid? How About a Suburba 3-wheel-amino

Travis brought news of the release of plans for Robert Q. Riley's very cool XR-3 diesel-electric hybrid, but how would you feel about a much earlier PopMech version that comes as a mini truck/car? Finkbuilt has dug up plans for the Suburba, a DIY three wheeled running chassis that can be bodied however you like. We… » 1/04/08 1:45pm 1/04/08 1:45pm

Match Made in Heaven: Skoda Delivery Fun

You didn't think we could actually make it through any trip without bringing you local Camino action did you? Here's a bitchin' Skoda Felicia Fun doing its duty as a pizza delivery truck/car in Schesslitz. Way more dignified than the last Fun we brought you. Could there be a better match? Pizza delivery, Camino-ness,… » 12/28/07 12:45pm 12/28/07 12:45pm

DAFamino Madness Grips Vermont By The Throat

The DAF Club of America held a Micro/Mini Madness event [Update: next to] the live free or die state over the weekend. And didn't invite us! Which would be like having a Dead Kennedys reunion without Jello Biafra Genesis reunion without Peter Gabriel. We wouldn't have been able to go anyhow, as we were tied up in… » 7/13/07 9:15am 7/13/07 9:15am

Barcelona: Come For the Food, Stay for the World's Cutest Garbage Trucks

I don't know anything about this little cutey except that it sounded diesel. I do know that the super narrow yet well kempt streets of Barcelona demand mini-garbage trucks. Which to our way of thinking, makes these the very coolest garbage trucks of all. Plus, like, somebody (no doubt an Italian) actually took the… » 1/04/07 2:21am 1/04/07 2:21am

Goggomobilimpressionen: Goggomobilamino!!!

The Glas Goggomobil is yet another post-war German microcar from a sewing machine manufacturer with a puny engine in the butt. Besides its righteous name, the Goggonmobil had the distinction of being built in the town of Dingofling. Besides its funny name, Dingofling is the current location of BMW's biggest factory… » 12/18/06 7:45pm 12/18/06 7:45pm
