It happened on October 16 1958…Chevrolet began selling a car-truck hybrid, the El Camino. Chevy discontinued it after just two years. In 1968, the more powerful SS engine made the El Camino into one of the iconic muscle cars of the late ‘60s and ‘70s
Also on October 16 1793, Marie-Antoinette is beheaded. She allegedly responded to news that the French peasantry had no bread to eat by replying “Let them eat cake.”
