Default 67 El Camino

My other ride is a El Camino. It came first but will be done last. My Bonnie is my daily driver so gets proper attention soon. I would rather have a classic Bonnie but for now this will have to do.

I love the El Camino'*. And they seem to get rarer by the day. It looks like you have a new one!

Its a 67 which by any definition is actually quite rare. I usually seem to pick up bastard children when it comes to model years for cars and my other toys. My Goldwing was much the same a 1200 bastard year that had few to no accessories available. the 67'* are much the same. minor changes from 66 to 67 but enough that it becomes a unique year altogether and then in 68 they went to the larger body so, again bastard year...But with the underpinnings it has with the TPI 350, power chip, 2 1/2" flowmasters, cold air intake (Needs to be redone) and some other go fast stuff inside the engine it'* plenty fast and plenty mean sounding for me. Just need to get to work on it someday...

it sounds meaner than it has a right to. it'* not foolin any of the ricers about what it has or doesn't have. THats good though too, not too many will try to step up as they think its bigger than it is.
