Nice, very detailed.

 

How do you fit in that Grumpster ?

 

I was thinking the same thing.

He'll have to get out of the hobby now; no room to haul any GTs in that. :poke:

Your car is awful little, must be an economy job! Hope you enjoy it, I never really liked them seems like a car trying to be a truck. I am one who believes you should do on thing really well instead of three things kinda good. Like the new military aircraft, JSF does all missions terribly instead of say one mission extremely well! And people wonder why we aren't the fighting force we once were, also they should let helicopters be helicopters and planes be planes only makes sense. That retarded osprey can't even have a cool name let alone manage to do anything right! Sorry got off track there.

The best looking El Caminos were the 1965 and the 1969. 30 years ago I picked up a 1969 El Camino for $25. No drivetrain, rotted frame. It was for my brother. He restored it as an SS350 to go along with his 68 SS327 El Camino. It was a time when cars were much cheaper. Enjoy your toy. Good Luck, Rick
