Ambitious Kid Asks GM CEO Mary Barra to Produce a New El Camino

Six-Year-Old Starts Online Petition to Prove Demand

Jan 29, 2015
Six-year-old Rafael Barkan isn’t unlike many car-obsessed kids. He spends his time playing with Hot Wheels, learning about cars, and attending local car shows when he can. But one little thing sets him apart: his ambition.

According to his dad, Steve Barkan, Rafael is an ardent fan of the Chevrolet El Camino, but instead of dreaming about buying a classic of his own, he thinks General Motors should put it in production again. His request (inscribed in his own handwriting in a letter to GM CEO Mary Barra) is simple:
To Mary Barra GMC CEO [sic]
Please start making El Caminos again. Thank you.
From Rafael Barkan and Steve Barkan

As if that well-worded (and adorable) letter weren’t enough, Rafael took his request to the streets, starting an online petition to prove to Barra that there was enough interest in a new El Camino. The week-old petition already has 1,082 signatures, more than the goal of 1,000 that Rafael specified.
If you agree with Rafael (which this author certainly does), you can sign your X on the petition here and discuss it with other fans. How cool would it be if Rafael’s ambitions resulted in a new El Camino for all of us?
