Using a six-year-old’s logic, the Chevrolet El Camino is clearly the coolest car ever. The six-year-old in question is Rafael Barkan, and he really wants GM to make a new El Camino. “He first saw an El Camino at the Autry Museum’s Route 66 exhibit last summer,” says the boy’s dad and he “instantly fell in love with the El Camino, because ‘it’s a muscle car AND a truck.'”

Concepts from Future Past: 1970 Holden Torana GTR-X

Concepts from Future Past: 1970 Holden Torana GTR-X
One of the best looking cars to ever surface from Australia is the Holden Torana GTR-X. Designed to be a low-production sports car for the 1970 model year, the two seater had a sublime long-nose, short-tail design that would have been in good company with the Chevy Corvette, Datsun Fairlady/Z and the Mazda RX-7.
