El Camino Custom
Purchased in Feb 2012 in So. California by Marine son stationed at Pendleton - located and bought for my wife-his mother. Vehicle lived on Pendleton for 4 months as a crusty, dented, but rust free car. Son squared it away mechanically and drove it in May 2012 from So California to South Dakota towing his 63 Nova and hauling his Harley. El Camino is wife's - her dad had a red one back in early 70's.
