No use having a bed if you can't use it every once in a while! I use mine every now and then to move 500lb injection mold tools for work. Usually one of the guys in shipping will do it in one of their big diesel trucks but the Elco can do it just as well when they're too busy.

My grandfather used to take his through the woods hunting, towing boats and campers, all that. I've got no intention to do that with it anymore, just a cruiser now.

I use mine for a lot of things but I can't see beating it up after all the work I put into it! :unsure: I just use a little protection and common sense! Or the Chevy Silverado. Whatever floats your boat as they say! (y):cool:

Considering my other options are a GTO I've put a similar level of care into or the wife's Honda Civic, I think the Elco is up to the task. I've heard the saying a saying about El Caminos that they're meant to haul hay and haul a** and after it's mini restoration, mine can do both quite well.
