Seriously? Nobody's ever heard of a Gaucho?

Here's a hint:

The same company also made a model called the 'Diablo'.

Nope, not a Lamborghini - I believe these were built in Toronto. Chrysler made a Diablo too, but not a Gaucho.

No, the Gaucho was an actual useful vehicle, not a kiddie car. I'd like to see you drive a Power Rider from Halifax to Vancouver. (hint hint)

Are you saying the gaucho was built in Toronto?

Yeah, I caught that too... if that's the case, then HotWheels is just as American since the main office is in L.A. American car company, foreign built car?

I am assuming they were built in Toronto, but they could also have been built in Missouri or Ohio.

No, I'm still looking for a manufacturer's name.

Maybe this will help jog someone's memory:

I can see that damn emblem on some 70's GM pickup bed! But I can't place it for sure! I give up, you are driving me nuts~
