Chevrolet El Camino SS "Ken Block" Looks Ready for Hooning

Have you met Mr. Ken Big Block? It seems you should, or at least this is what one might gather by checking out the Chevrolet El Camino SS rendering sitting before us.

This pixel play didn't land by accident, though. In fact, while we're all stuck at home, it looks like digital artists have decided to move Block's hooning efforts online. It all started less than two weeks ago, when Ash Thorp shared Block's next ride with the world.

The artist, who also shaped the next Batmobile, worked together with the professional hoonigan to introduce the mother of Ford Mustang Fox Body all-round builds (think: drag racers are in a class of their own), hence the Hoonifox nameplate of the future build.

Over the past weekend, we saw another pixel master, Abimelec Arellano, presenting the "Hoonicop", a machine similar to the one mentioned above, albeit with this based on the good old Crown Victoria. And while nobody has shown the intention to bring such a project to life so far, it still makes for an astonishing proposal.

The said virtual contraptions not only came in 3D form, but also featured multiple liveries and we can say the same about the El Camino sitting before us.

This rendering, which comes from digital artist Ardiansyah, follows the pattern, all to the delight of our eyes. After all, the third-gen El Camino we have here saw the coupe-truck becoming larger, but also friendlier to the scales. So we're talking about the iteration that saw the badge fully embracing the performance aroma.

And while some fans will always prefer the original 1977 F-150 Hoonitruck restomod that Ken Block actually used (or any other of his Fords), the Chevy twist we have here is certainly a sight for sore eyes, whether you fancy the Gymkhana livery or would rather go for the all-back approach.
