Congrads to all who put this site together and continue to monitor and make it better. As a person who took 13 yrs to restore my El Camino I can tell anyone that w/o a doubt NECOA members have gotten involved it helping me complete a fine ride. The expertise and years of knowledge obtainable here is Huge. I cannot thank enough all those who helped me. I know I still owe a Beer or Hot Dogs to some. I'll get there just need a few all El Camino meets.
Thank You ALL!

I joined in May of 2004. The people here have helped me learn to put doors, fenders, rear quarter panel, hood and grill on the 78. They have helped me learn engine repairs as well. They have helped me learn about redoing the interior, while I was working on headliner, doors, floor and carpet. Also helped us redo the visors. Also helped me work on the cruise control and the speedometer cable. They also helped me learn the electronics of the dash and the repair techniques to other things on my 78 El Camino. I appreciate everyone's time, ideas and help on these things. Thank you all and hope everyone is doing well.

How I got here. My wife and I attended a lot of Cruise Nights as spectators and I really wanted a car but finances were limited. One night we were riding around and found this El Camino or so I thought. Turns out it was a GMC version called a Caballero. It was from out of state and had a decent body to be in New England. After some decision time I bought it.

My wife, Cabagurl78 jumped right in and told me she found this incredible site that was full of information, she had joined and I had to join. This was 2010.

Move ahead a couple years and I became Deputy Regional Director then Regional Director. Many years later and I am here as the National Director.

I am very biased as I feel this is the best group of El Camino/Sprint/Caballero owners on the internet.

Many have followed, none can compare.

Wow, that makes me a newly. I joined in 2011. Do the math that is 11 years ago. I have owned an El Camino for over 38 years now. I can remember when an El Camino was seen as an odd ball and my 348 was called a boat anchor. I joined and instantly worked with Sharp71 to start a local group. I quickly took over the Region and then before being tapped, by Kenny Rogers, to take on the Deputy National Director position. I have enjoyed all the ups and downs of this organization and I hope to continue contribute for as long as I can be a force for good.

Many thanks to all who got this community off the ground and grew it to what it is today.

Been here since 2004. Can hardly believe it's been that long. I've been a member of other forums over the years, but either they're gone or I just lost interest. This one keeps me coming back.
