    Hi everyone, I'm Mike, and I have an '84 El Camino, which I purchased from my father in 2007. Later that year I replaced the factory 305 with a Chevrolet Performance 350 HO. Being young and excited with my newfound horsepower, I didn't break the engine in correctly, and it developed a knock. I...

    I've had my 1971 daily driver almost a year. So far replaced 350 engine(too many oil leaks to count) and added Vintage air. Learning how to drive all over again. Spoiled on new cars improved handling. It's in primer now after sanding down to bare metal(7 coats of paint) and repairing rust and...

    Hello Everybody, I got my first classic a few weeks ago. A pretty 64 El Camino. It is in the shop now having a few things done (seat belts, windshield wipers, horn) so I can get it inspected and registered. I look forward to learning a lot from everyone here.

    It seems I came to the right place to get help on my 1982 EC. It is a project car I recently bought. It is a V6 car that may get a bigger motor later in its life, right now I am enjoying the gas mileage it gets. It doesn't need much in the way under the hood or suspension, the PO did a good job...

    Hi. My name is Tim, I'm 23 and I've had my El Camino for about 5 years. She's an '81 base model 3 speed standard. The body is in near mint condition with a white almost pearl like paint job and the interior is maroon. The only parts that need replacing at a few interior items, but even then it...

    Hello to the membership. I'm an older guy, enjoying semi-retirement in Indianapolis and finally having the time (and a little bit of cash flow) to finally relive the youth that was lost to Vietnam. Part of that yearning for yesterday is memories of early '60's sbc's. So, I have a '56 265...
  9. New to Forum! Searching for 1st El Camino!

    For New Forum Members Only
    Thanks to DONE DEAL DONNY who invited me to El Camino Central! I'm looking for my first El Camino in Dallas-Fort Worth, TX. Any pointers? Hoping to find an Elco that is decent enough to be daily driver as I add my own identity to it. Thanks in advance.

    So i just got this '68 Elky from my brother, he never got the chance to do anything to it so decided to pass it down to me. Don't really know much of classic cars or cars to be exact, but i was always fascinated by classic cars. My brother told me it has a 350 engine and hasn't ran for over 2...
