Where are you in Virginia? I've been to Car Shows for the last couple years and have seen a few El Camino's. I'm down here in South Boston, VA and try not to go more than 100 miles one way for shows. Saw your town put not sure where it is and now forgot the name. Anyway perhaps you are above Martinsville or on the other side south. Michael in Vierginia

I believe they have something going on in Roanoke around the first of March, In door car show. I've been to the Car Show at the V. A. in Salem so not sure if you are even looking for car shows around the state. If you live their then you've got to travel alot to see others. I know of a couple sharp El Camino down in Greensboro, NC. Michael in Virginia??

Think twice

Nick, Think twice before parting with her. Unless you need the money drastically, try to keep the car. Take it from me,.. I sold a '64 Camino 283 all trimmed out just to pay for first semester College books. I got a part time job, had enough money to get me by, and couldn't buy back my Camino. The clown I sold it to, wrecked it 2 weeks after I signed the Regi. - Poor planning on my part. - George

Just got through inspection *whew* good for another 80,000 miles

Mines just an 80, as special as it is, I want a 72 or 73, which both cost a considerable amount more, and are harder to find by far. My house also needs work, on top of going to college. Idk, Ill put it up for an actually reasonable amount and see what happens.

I agree with George. If you really like the car you should keep it if you can. I sold my first collectible car, a 1972 Volkswagon Karmann Ghia, when our second child came long. I sold it because it wasn't practical in that it lacked a functional back seat. I sold the Ghia, along with my motorcycle and a sporty little 4x4 pickup, exchanging those three for a crew-cab Nissan pickup.

I still pine for that car, and to a lesser extent, the bike, even though I sold them almost thirteen years ago. I suspect that is part of the reason that I am so reluctant to sell one of my toys now.

Nick, when you get a chance send me a picture or two and your $$$$$. You can't post it on here since you don't have enough post. I will PM you also. Michael in South Boston, VA [email protected] (434) 549-3936 I have a 80 now that I take to car shows. I went and looked at one down in NC but it was trash. :smileyb:
