When I retired in 2000 I intended to restore my '87 Choo Choo. But I didn't like crawling around under cars as much as I used to, so I started looking for one already done. I looked at a bunch of them - even went to Berlin, New Jersey to see one but it wasn't as good as they said it was. So I came back home to Crosby, Texas and started looking again. I found it 50 miles away in Freeport, Texas. The car was built for a high school student that decided he didn't want it - he wanted one that was already finished - so his dad gave him the one that was ready to ride and finished out the El Camino and put it up for sale. I was in the right place at the right time with cash in hand.
