History
This is the replacement El Camino for my original project on a black 85' El Camino SS Choo Choo. That car was beat on by my Dad for decades as a work car and was too trashed to be bothered with. So this car was purchased for $2100 in Ohio on Craigslist. Now my Dad and I restore and modify it.
