In the latest episode of Generation Gap, the guys explore the “pickups” of the collector car world. But these “pickups” are a bit more car than you would want on the construction site. Davin’s choice is a 1970 Chevrolet El Camino that gets its power from a 454 CI V-8 with a Rock Crusher 4-speed. Matt’s choice, a 2004 Chevrolet SSR, has a supercharged 5.3-liter V-8 with an automatic transmission and a retractable hard top. Which one of these would you rather see parked in your garage?

Generation Gap appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

      I think the SSR was a reply to the Plymouth prowler in a sense

      I'd go for the 1970. I always lean toward old school.

      I love both trucks. Always loved the el camino sice a friend brought one to high school. I am drawn to 2 seat vehicles. I love roadsters. The drop top on the SSR is what makes it appealing. I checked out ine with 80,000 miles and it was a rattle trap.

      I have owned both. Price today is equal. Performance? 2 different technology. Chevrolet needed to place a better LS motor in SSR to start with. el Camino had it all from start. No need to lower sun visors to open or close top. Sheet metal new and used for both trucks is available. The Trail blazer chassis in SSR is common for parts. Ugly? Does your wife know you pass judgement totally on looks? SSR may not be a looker for everybody. But she has many pluses that just looking at her? Might fail but SSR & significant other? lol Beauty is only skin deep. One big negative elCamino has SSR does not. Head room. lean back to far or tall person. The the most horrible? If your elCamino is rear ended? Your head is going through the rear window. SSR has head room & safety equipment for you not to get a concussion. I love Chevy's. As I have told many haters. Both have close to same size bed I have half ton load rating & can tow up to 2500 trailer. Funny you said Linkenfielder installed a Magnuson supercharger? I asked them. Nope. Prefer Whipple?

      El Camino SS 454 no question is my kind of vehicle!

      The front grill and The headlights on the SSR are ugly beyond belief, if they had put a classic styled front end on it that would have been great. The El Camino is fabulous, one of the best looking rigs ever.
