While we may not be as obsessed with all-things-Caminage as some other sites, we have a hard time denying the useful versatility of a rear-wheel drive sedan, with everything aft of the B-pillar removed and turned into a truck bed. Rumors are beginning to circulate that GM may be considering bringing back the El Camino by pulling a Commodore/G8 and importing their so-called Ute to the Colonies. We'll go on the record as saying that we're totally all right with that -– as long as we can get a Rhino bumper to affix to the front.

All that said, we'd like to present to you today's RR of the Day, in the form of Autoblog reader Leden's work Ute, a Holden Commodore VU S of unknown vintage (we think it's a 2001).

With over 77k on the clock and sporting a V6 engine, mated to a five-speed manual, Leden can tool around Down Under with a large vat of "concrete repair chemicals" tied down in the rear to give the Ute a bit more traction in the back. His only complaint is that it's a bit of a chore to park the lengthy beast in compact spaces, but we'll admit that if we could get this kind of versatility Stateside, we just park a little further away from Home Depot.

You can check out a few more pics of Leden's work whip after the jump, along with directions on how to submit your own ride to our Flickr pool.

UPDATE: For the record, Leden is none other than AutoblogGreen's own Dane Muldoon. -Ed.




How to submit to RR of the Day:

Create a
Flickr account if you don't already have one. Search for and join the group called 'Autoblog RR of the Day'.

Even if your ride is sweet, it will not be chosen if there's not a lot of info accompanying it. Click on each photo and just above the picture it will say "Send to group". Click that and select the Autoblog group. You're done, that's it!
