Really loving the Chevel Picador and can't believe I held off garaging one for so long.

My picador is a work of art!

The rear taillight / boot garnish reminds of a 1971 HG Monaro GTS (see below)

Don't forget there was also the GMC Sprint (name changed to "Caballero" after 1978). Also the Ford Ranchero too.  It is likely that Rockstar culled ideas from all of these and blended a little bit of them all into the Picador.

 

 

The Picador is a Cheval, so that means it is a Chevy. It does have influences from different years of GM products, but it is no Ranchero influences.

How fast do you need to be driving when you hit a pedestrian in a picador head on to have them flip over the hood/roof and land in the bed of the truck?

 

It is tricky head on, try backing into them with the tailgate at a slow speed. However the cartoons with try and jump out so jump out and shoot them or step on the gas and then slam it into reverse a few times, that will also kill them.

 

Make sure you post some pics of the carnage.

I Just bought one of these for the hell of it. I actually like it... Especially the ability to scoop people up in reverse. Haha! I kept mine looking rather plain though.

I have one with personal plates. I always have loved the look of the El-Camino and fancied a Picador as my first car....

Well you have to practice and hit them just right, not to fast or they go over the roof. You can try backing into pedestrians, that always works. 

 

 

Reverse into them at a moderate speed and kill them with a single pistol shot to the head.

 

I still haven't managed to get a surfboard in there yet.  I'll keep going.

The one muscle car that I'd love to put a blower on, and you can't do anything to it.

My Picador: (Based on the Slamvan from SanAndreas)

 

I know the two cars are different makes/model but I think the 'Picador' resembles the 'Slamvan' from SanAndreas better than the 'Vapid Slamvan' does in GTA V.

 

Also the colours don't completly match up, but I don't like the Picador in dark matte red. The rims don't really match up either.

That looks awesome. Only thing I would have changed is I'd have made the wheels a shade or two darker.

Really like these Piacdors, not sure exactly why, but I have a metallic gold one and just can't part with it despite never really using it.

I had one for a while, but the dimensions of it bother me. It's like it's not wide enough and the front end is way too short.

I love this ute and for a long time I had it in and out of my garage since I could never figure out what colour to paint it, I eventually settled on the dark green that NPC Dubstas sometimes spawn in and haven't looked back since.

I would get this is it had some body mods to it, I feel it looks too plain the way it is. I find that to be a problem with a lot of vehicles in the game, really honestly.
