Tonight on the History Channel, the show Top Gear turns a fifth generation El Camino into a taxi. (9:00pm eastern)

Just watched the Elky. Now I remember why I never watch that stupid show. The guys on the British show should sue these clowns for defamation.

Watched Texas Car Wars tonight where they found a 68 in a junk yard auction and restored it. They do things in the most 1/2-a$$ manner. Spend more time trying to figure out ways to "put it to the buyer" than fixing the cars properly. Guess it's all in the script.

Top gear is Funny, Adam Ferrera is a great Stand up comedian and just makes this show fun entertainment. What's funny about the Elco taxi is that when I was very young, my dad had a bench seat in the bed of his 4th gen. Brings back memories

It's just a "redneck" rumble seat!

I'm going to have a bench seat left over after getting buckets installed in mine. Been wondering what to do with it. Turn it into a mini couch.... sell it, or figure some way to temporarily mount it in the bed. Then I have a perfect parade vehicle... or a spectator vehicle for the Woodward Dream Cruise!
