Just to set the record straight, I am a proud redneck hillbilly and can throw rocks all day. Crash, ask your kids for a definition of "Redneck Hillbilly" so we can send a few stones their way. Now as far as El Camino's go, I have never owned one, but have spent many miles in the passenger seat and a few behind the wheel, with a couple of dog boxes in the back traveling from field to field hunting quail and pheasant. As long as the weather is good, this is a luxury ride. The 72 SB 400 was a pretty good grocery getter and bass boat towing rig. The 65 396 was a fun ride as well. One of my redneck Bud's 78 is a sleeper with a 94 Vette motor professionally installed under the hood.
Stovebolter, the 36 Chevy you are referring to was not a US made vehicle. We can thank the Aussies for the "Ute". They are really neat vehicles and were way ahead of our 64-78 El Caminos and Rancheros that sort of copied them.
