Here another "What if cars" inspired from a site I know named "What if cars?" [link]

For 1940-41, as a reply to the show car/dream car Buick Y-Job, Chrysler with the help of Briggs body, created 2 show cars, the Newport Patheon and the Thunderbolt [link] [link]
[link]

Then I taught, what if Chrysler had decided to made a stretched version with a conventionnal roof. Not as conventionnal as a 2-door sedan but close to a car that never was, the 1946 Chrysler Town & Country club coupe hardtop [link] [link] Here the Thunderbolt Club coupe hardtop.

Nice car!

What I'd like is a S-10 pick-up truck upgraded with strong tranmission and better fuel mileage. :)

Thanks!:)

The irony was then GM continued to make the S-10 in Brazil until the 2012 model year but with different engines. [link] And instead of being called Colorado, GM's Brazilian subsdiary will continue to use the S-10 name [link]

De Rien! :D

Oh, that's interesting and funny. :XD: I did look at this Colorado truck but it got poor reviews. :/

And Chevrolet offer in Mexico, a much smaller pick-up alias "Ute" in Australia and "bakkie" in South Africa named Tornado (aka Montana in Brazil and Argentina) [link] It could be interpreted also as a modern incarnation of the Chevrolet El Camino.

They should have sold this vehicule here (and Ford should do the same with the Courier and there rumors then Dodge could get a version of the Fiat Strada sold in Mexico).

Okay, that went over my head. I'm not a car person. ^^; My truck is just my workhorse. :)
