    So you are out of Minnesota. My wife and I put on Physique Contest and are judging the Mr&MS Minnesota Natural show coming up the 26th& 27th in Bloomington.

    My ElCo is a 65. Bought it out of Porterville CA. Drove it back with my wife to KC MO. Nothing here under 10k without bondo. Paid 8k for it. I upgraded the 350 crate adding Vortec hds did bowl porting cleanup, took cc's out of the chamber to get C/R down for the change to Hypereutectic flat tops for 10.1 C/R. Comp 268HE cam, 600 Holley, headers. Replaced bad 700r with a rebuilt hopped up one. Next is a posi unit. Sticking to 3.36 gear. Runs at 2140 at 70mph. With the 700r it launches like a 4.11 geared 350 TH. Second pulls like a 3.73 but I get the OD mileage. Great!

    Send me a pic of the mod to protect the rear lights. Very intrigued with that.

    Hi, nice '64? Tell me about it.

    I joined el Camino central around Dec Jan. Right after I got my 77. It's a good group. Lots of info specific to EC.

    I do al my own work too. Currently I'm working on suspension improvements. I also am almost done with a shield behind the rear wheels to protect the tail lights and underbody behind the rear wheels. I TIG welded the stainless steel wheel well extensions Friday. Yesterday the Minn Streetrod Association put on a rod inspection. I took the el Camino there and passed. One of the Sat breakfast guys was the chairman of the inspection group so we wanted to support him. 41 cars passed...I was #41 as I got there late. It's a good time coffee and lots of donuts.
