Hi guys, HULKAMINO here. I have a 1965 El Camino I found in Brownsfield, Tx over a year ago. El Caminos have been my dream car since I was 10 years old and saw my friend's dad's 1971 El Camino with a roaring 454 and white racing stripes. My little lady was an abused drag racing car with a frankenstein 350 turned 383. no wheel wells, random van seats, patches on the floor pan, half a dash shelf, holes all over the fire wall for makeshift wiring and a million and one other things wrong. For the last year I've used much of my time reading, planning, designing, building my garage, and enlarging my tool collection. I knew some things were going to need more than one person so I had to find a partner...I recruited my girlfriend haha. At first she knew next to nothing about cars but over time she learned what she needed to and practiced when possible. She eventually bought a 1958 apache fleet side for her dad who had one when he was 17. We've worked more on the Apache than my El Camino but that partially because I'm a bit of a perfectionist. I've taken pictures whenever possible not only for my own notes but also to show other people that might have questions. I still have over 90% to go on finishing this monster but it's something I look forward to very much so. I enjoy taking pictures of my work and being detailed so please please please, if anybody wants to see any process done, let me know and I will most likely be able to do it with instructions and list of tools or parts needed. I look forward to knowing everyone.

Stay fast my friends,

HULKAMINO
