Yes, first time Ive seen an original OH broadcast instead of a rerun. Wish I'd had the presence of mind to turn on the recorder when I realized it was a '70 Camino.

Although I really respect Chip Foose for his craftmanship and attention to detail, I am a little disappointed with some of his designs. Even with the nice custom touches, they usually still boil down to the same old boring RESTOMOD. Perhaps the worst thing about his overhauls is he picks out some of the most atrocious wheel designs I've ever seen. Would not want any of his wheels on my 69, even if they were free. Still not sure if I liked the looks better before or after but I'd bet my last dollar it performed and handled a lot better after Chip got done.

I spent the whole hour last night wishing I still had both of my 70s. Hopefully will be able to record this episode if they rerun it next week.

that episode did not show on my tv here in SC. I have direct tv and it was a 67 mustang and said next week was the 70 el camino. I have it set to record all episodes I don't know what happened.

If I could have one of chips skills for a week, I think I'd have trim repair. They did a great job.

I'm not too sure if I liked the 'flames' Chip put on there. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE a good flame job, but I guess I was hoping for a more traditional one on this '70. Overall, the build was rockin' though.

watched the entire episode, and wondered what would I do with an unlimited budget? All of the new suspension would be a great start.
