From coupe to pickup truck and back

Are coupes making a comeback? That’s what this article from The Truth About Cars is postulating.
Elton reminds us what happened to the Ford Galaxy and the Chrysler New Yorker. When convertibles vanished for such reasons as “blood and guts” drivers ed, the coupe shortly followed to later evolve, like dinosaurs into birds, into the pickup truck.

Yes. Pickup trucks. (Look at that Ford F150 and just squint a bit.) But with renewed interest in cars again after truck-based SUVs, Elton muses, the rebirth of the coupe such as the Pontiac G6 coupe (pictured) can’t be far behind.
