2012 Camaromino

Well honk my hooter and call me Cletus! Someone has actually taken the time to create the ultimate in new age redneck transport. By mating a Holden Ute SSV with a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, a new breed of overland transport has been created. May I present to you the 2012 Camar-O-mino, and hot damn if this just don’t tickle the pickle. The Holden Ute SSV is basically the Australian version our beloved, and now defunct El Camino for those born after 1990. It’s also powered by the same 400 hp 6.0-liter V8 mill that found its way into the Pontiac GTO that was built from 2004-2006.

The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro on the other hand, is all home grown on American soil and looks to have donated its snout, front fascia, grill and hood to the project. Now, could Chevrolet be planning a new Camar-O-mino for 2012… well, who knows. One things for sure, if this thing gets out rednecks and white trash the world over will be doing diving headers off tapped kegs in trailer parks everywhere.

    I am happy to stand corrected, but isn’t that all-American Camaro Australian designed? As i understand it, the Camaro sits on the same Holden Commodore Chassis as the SSV you show above. I am sure those more knowledgeable can expand or correct me. Either way, it is a redneck wet dream.

    jase, you are correct. The Camaro is based on the same platform (basic floorpan and suspension layout) as the Pontiac G8 and the Australian Holden Commodore and several other vehicles in various international markets. A brief overview can be found on the wikipedia page for the Zeta platform: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GM_Zeta_platform
