It was reported last month that Pontiac is down to 10 names after asking the public to vote on the name for the new 2010 Pontiac G8 Sport Truck. Spokesman Brian Shipman at the time said that ‘El Camino’ is most likely axed from the options due to internal conflict between Chevrolet and Pontiac over the badge.
However, according to G8 Nation, the ‘El Camino’ nameplate may be back on the table. Pontiac Communication Manager, Jim Hopson dropped the G8 focused site an email stating that the ‘El Camino is definitely one of the fan favorite’ and ‘is being considered’ once again.
Honestly we don’t see the big deal; if people like it, just give it to them. Why go back and forth on the name of the car?
