50 Cent likes Holdens

US car maker Pontiac released their new “sport pickup”, which is the Holden VE ute with a Pontiac-designed front end, at the New York motor show a couple of days ago. Rapper 50 Cent, who is sponsored by parent company General Motors, has stated that he would like to bling one up when it is released to the US public. See SMH story here.

An online competition will be held to determine a name for the ute (which can’t be called a ute becauseit would share a name with a native American Indian tribe).Regardless of how completely insane the name selected may be, I think that it will be popular with those who want something like a Dodge Ram or Ford F150 (4 wheel drive based pickups), but with a more sporty look to it. Of course, the ongoing fuel saga may have a significant say in whether it’s a case of go or woe.
