Of all of the reasons we’ve been given thus far, this is my favorite for the simple reason that it’s something that could have escaped notice entirely. Let’s face it– the El Camino is the platypus of the automotive industry. It’s a weird fusion of a car and a truck whose very design is almost symbolic of the late 60’s and 70’s. It also has the distinction of being the most unlikely G.I. Joe assault vehicle since the Joes commandeered the van of Bongo the Balloon Bear in the classic Marvel run. Now if only we’d get a nice 1:18 standard version in the Joe line. (I’m serious!)
