My name is Paul, I drive El Camino's. Have an 84 Summer car, 81 Winter car.

I consider myself an old school / hard core type who does as much of my own work as possible. Funds are tight, substitute hard work / preservation for
cubic money, send it out jobs. 81 is driven winters, and has some creative patchwork. Frame mount / body mount perches recently fixed, along with patching up basketball sized holes in cave. Car has seen about 16 New
England Winters. It was sad to see the rust, price to pay for driving a classic.
Engine is 229 K six , great winter motor . Very reliable, stylish car I've owned it about 20 years and have put well over 100, 000 miles on it.

Plan to register as antique, and finish its life as an engine test vehicle
this spring, for now, daily driver.


84 is real nice, very little rust, been well preserved, summers only
Orig engine worn, have 350 on stand Body very good, paint tired
Very reliable car. Fixed many Electrical quirks Owned for aprox
8 years Daily Summer Driver, Roch 2 BL on Trans Dapt adapter =
very good around town performance. both Cars have Rear Sway Bars
and Silicone Brake Fluid, as one is always stored. AC's converted to R134A
[ I built the evacuator ] I'm a 4 eyed slow poke, so horsepower doesn't mean that much, reliability does . I build because I have to, and have been
building up cars long before it became fashionable to do so.
