    I couldn't resist

    Yes, I know, it's the dark side but I just couldn't resist buying this 64 El Camino. Hopefully it'll be dropped at the docks today (fingers crossed) ready for the New Year. There's plenty of work to be done and the body will be coming off the chassis to give that a good going over. The build will consist of the following.

    Corvette LS 6.0 Motor.
    6 speed automatic transmission
    Air ride suspension.
    Fresh paint.
    New interior.
    18" rims up front and 20" rims out back.

    I know most people will hate it, but hey ho, it's mine lol.

              No Barney, it'll be a cut out which is a far cheaper option.

                  Are you going to use Hydraulics ? not for the suspension, for the lifts arms to load the rubbish skips on the back, don't forget the flashing amber warning lights ! ;));));));));))

                              That's a nice ride - I really like the El Camino - please paint it and don't leave that patina finish. I really don't like the rat look, its for people who are afraid of spray guns and paint.

                              I reckon those heater hoses came off Steptoe's central heating system.
