El Camino Central is a database-driven, dynamic content, virtual community for Chevrolet El Camino owners and friends.
El Camino Central was founded early 1998 by Robert C. More to share his hobby and experience with El Caminos with others. After undergoing several designs, software changes, and formats, and negative reaction from a few other automotive forums expresing the overall lack of interest in an exclusive "El Camino" forum, he was about to give up and move on to other projects. It was not until September 10th, 2002, that El Camino Central gained it's first registered user, and co-founder, Rob Haggard, (Poltergeist). It is this reason we mark September 10th, 2002 as our official founding anniversary. The two Robs soon became brothers-in-arms and found much in common aside from our love of El Caminos. With Rob H's encouragement, assistance with design, administration, their combined posts and articles, El Camino Central soon became a popular site among El Camino owners and aficionados. We immediately gained a handful of seasoned and knowledgeable members ie., Ernie G. (87Elcamino
), Robin C. (Mrapii
), Vernon E. (ElkyPete
), Peter Brown (87SS
), and many many others who devoted extensive time and effort to begin and maintain the helpful and courteous tradition which has made the site famous worldwide, and a role model for others. In early 2003, after much consideration and dialog between the administators, current members and then National Director of the National El Camino Owners Association, Dan Smith (ElkySS
), and NECOA members,
El Camino Central and The National El Camino Owners Association, combined membership and elcaminocentral.com became the internet home of the NECOA.
After the merge, we had nearly 900 members. Today, (March 2009) El Camino Central has over 13,000 members in the US, South America, Canada, Australia, Asia, Africa, and Europe making us the largest, greatest and friendliest group of El Camino owners in the world.
