GM files for ‘El Camino’ and ‘Nomad’ trademarks

Pontiac G8 Sport Track

According to the U.S. Patent and Trademark office, GM has applied for trademarks on the Chevrolet ‘El Camino’ and ‘Nomad’ names. GM filed for the El Camino badge on Aug. 9 followed by the Nomad name on May 22.

Does this mean that the two models will be resurrected. Not at all. GM says it has no plans at this point to use the names.

“Chevrolet benefits from a rich history of iconic names and monikers,” a GM spokesman wrote in an e-mail to Automotive News. “We trademark these names as needed to protect them as a matter of practice.”

Of course, enthusiasts are in hopes that the trademarks could mean that GM is planning successors for the classic models.
