Sadly, the Mini Cooper El Camino (or El MiniCamino) isn't a new awesome concept from Mini, but rather a one-off custom ride from Pioneer. Apparently made for the Paris Tuning Show, this truck-car conversion features a body kit from MS-Design, 18-inch alloy wheels, lowered suspension and what we imagine is a fairly powerful sound system. It even looks as though the top, which is currently supporting a lone surfboard, might actually come straight off. Following the current trend, the car sports a paint job that looks matte brown at most angles.

Though we're not big on the paint job or the "steal my shit" iPod dock, we like the idea of a car-like ride with about four cubic feet of storage space. [Carscoop]
