It's cool. I don't know if it's something I would buy. Although, I think it would be a good compromise of open area cargo and car-like performance which would be a good thing.

Well, it's sweet that they're bringing it here, but I can't buy a car with an automatic transmission. With time hopefully that'll change.

I also disagree with the G8 Ute idea, Chevy El Camino would be so much cooler. I guess it's not really retro looking though.

Mitlov, you might wanna change your initial post - a quick check to the Holden website shows that this LS2 beast has an optional T-56...

And this mother is cool. Not quite frozen (I'd give the HSV version a frozen), but damn cool. I could certainly use one of those.

It's been edited. The original post was based off of the Edmunds write-up, which made it sound auto-only.

I'd rather have either a standard sedan/coupe or a pickup. This is a hideous example of a mix of the two, and the result is outrageous ugliness. Uncool.
