I use it daily as my shop truck, general transportation, and did a 4000 mile vacation trip with it last year.
Cool ride! I remember when when these were new as my dad was a Buick salesmen and they would come around one came in on the used car lot. Back a year or so ago I had my wife's van fixed at a shop here in town and they let me drive their 82 ElCamino for the day. Holy crap that thing was like going back in time for me. It is a super nice all original, lo miles car and drives like a dream. What a super nice daily driver they make.
