The perfect car for the philosopher has to be the Chevrolet El Camino.
It’s a paradox.
Is it a truck? Is it a car? No! It’s both.
Even though it is classified as a truck and titled as such, its body type is classified as a “coupe utility.” That is, it uses a unibody automobile platform rather than a pickup truck’s body-on-frame construction. It is not built with the separate cab and body construction of a pickup truck, even though it does have a cargo bed behind the cabin.
Somewhere Aristotle’s head just exploded.
So my plan to save the General Motors is this:
Bring back the Chevy El Camino, but rename it the Chevy Paradox.
They can even turn it into a hybrid if they must.
I know I’d buy one.
