How about a thread for everybody to contribute to. I am taking this idea from a different forum that I read/post on. When you see an El Camino, post a photo of it. I saw this one today while I was working.

Vehicle Car Windshield Mode of transport Auto part


1969 El Camino sighted at AAA Rock quarry in Monroe, Wa.
Who knows, somebody may post a photo of you and your car, while you are out and about.

Arguably the most visible Elky in America. Been on So. Dixie Highway (can you still say that?) for at least 3 months now. Same spot...at a classic car shop...just minding its business. Thousands (preC-19) passed by it without taking notice! The most visited but unloved Elky in ‘Merica!

Where’s the owner?
C’mon Man.....FIX HER!!

@riatta Thanks. It very well could be. The Rover looked like it was there for awhile. They were parked close to the main entrance. Awesome info. That’s in the spirit of this thread! Identify all the Elkys out there! BTW, I had just purchased my Elky not 3 weeks before a preplanned 3 week tour of CA. Boy was I Jonesing to get back home.


Here’s some more and me!

you mean the wedge-shaped mirror? same mirror as the Corvette, Fiero, and Camaro/TransAm. of course, the the first two were power electric
Some of the Camaro/Firebird mirrors were electric also. I picked up one for the driver side at the wrecking yard last weekend, will be looking for the passenger side as well. The only problem on a '78 is having to drill new holes in the door to mount them in the correct position. I wonder if doors for the 86-87s are the same otherwise. It would cost more, but I don't want to mess up a good pair of doors, then again, I don't want my car multi colored either. I will make that decision when the time comes.

correct, but trying to figure out which were and weren't was kind of a PITA, so I found a 'Vette owner on Craigslist selling a pair of the mirrors :)

as for mounting, take a look at Darbysan's ride and how he mounted his mirrors. that may solve your mounting problem

Brakes on my company van hard failed at end of my street this morning, so I had to dig mine out as company work truck # 2 for the day. Forgot how much attention it gets being out in daylight hours. My revised bedcover is smaller & lower now, but can still fit a few 5 gal buckets standing up between the bracing.
