Garage
Vehicle Name Pa's Car
Year 1987
Make chev
Model el camino
Color Burgandy/silver
History This car just turned over 500k miles. I have never had the valve covers off.. never changed the timing chain. It is my daily driver and still gets 23-25 mpg. This car is a lover.. not a fighter.
My grandkids call it Pa's Car.. they all love it.
Exterior
well worn paint and rust in just the right locations..

Interior
mostly stock except for the 1985 Toyota Supra electric seats. I wish I had kept my split bench now that I have grandkids and car seats

Drivetrain
305- 4bbl - 2004r
500k miles

Under the Hood
All stock with Mountain Man rebuilt q-jet

Suspension
all of the F-41 mods available. KYB gas adjust at 4 corners.. rear in spring air bags, UMI tubular trailing arms.. rear sway bar(this made the most difference in handling)
These upgrades help when I pull my horse trailer

Wheel and Tire
Front 15x7 American outlaw II w/Cooper Cobra 225/70-15
Rear 15x8 American Outlaw II w/Cooper Cobras 255/70-15
