I owned a '78 El Camino. Although I loved it dearly, it should NOT be your first car. Not safe. Case Closed.

You said it yourself, first car/race car. Baaaaad combinaiton.
It should never be your primary driver. You should always have a backup.

Odds are it needs a couple grand in work, that or you got it from a family member of a friend who gave you a killer deal.

I'll pretend I care for a minute.

No matter what you do to a elcamino, you're still a mullet wearin' hillbilly.

But... not...
If anything it's more associated with Mexicans, not red necks. If you are going to make an idiotic generalisation, do it right.

But serisouly, I could understand posting something like that if it were, say... clever? But what you said wasn't even funny in an obvious way. It was just utterly stupid. What was the point in posting it?

Guess what, your mexican's with el caminos are hillbillies. I haven't seen one mexican drive an el camino. I have seen plenty of rednecks drive them, because I am so furtnate to be able to live in this **** hole of a town.

1967 El Camino SS



El Camino is the same thing as a Chevelle, except it has a truck bed instead of a backseat/trunk. And unless you have alot of money, you won't be able to afford a nice one from the 60s.

had a 67 Chevelle as a first car, then i crashed into a light poll, not a great first car. Be like every one else and get a small truck or car, then later in life get the car of your dreams
