Not sure if anybody likes El Camino's. My Grandpa is selling his toy. He is upgrading to something more powerful.

Is it legal to own? Those seats don't look factory fitted.

Dood. I wish he would have posted a pic of the bed. It is fully upholstered. He joked that after he passes away he could have used the el Camino to carry his casket. I think he is upgrading to something with a big block. This thing is really fast. He spent a ton of money on the suspension to keep the wheels from slipping too much.

We complain about Rovers being a money pit... The things you can do to these cars it's pretty impre$$ive.

I've always had a thing for El Caminos. This is my neighbors. It's been sitting since I moved here, one day I'm going to have to ask.

....made me think of a build/restoration from Count's Kustoms, but of a 59 Thunderbird... wish he had posted some pics of the bed too.
