    I'm thinking that it won't be nearly as much fun in the El Camino as it was in the Blazer... ;)

    No no no no, The El Camino is parked for the winter. I'm driving the daily driver (2000 Oldsmobile Alero GLS Coupe) with the full coverage insurense. No need too go anywhere in the snow right now. I went to the store today and stocked up for the next couple of weeks, LOL.

    I agree somewhat. I do like the 4X4 El Caminos when they're done right. But I also like a well done street rod style El Camino. My plans for this one is the Street Rod style. Nothing too crazy, just a mildly built 327, 700r4, and posi rear axle with 3.73 gears. I'm thinking either Hotchkis TVS, or possibly Air Ride. My goal is a fun too drive street machine. Don't need the fastest car on the road, just a fun too drive, nice looking street rod.

    I kind of have this strange feeling that it's not going to snow....... If it does, it won't be anything worth mentioning... But let's see... bring it on... It took 3 feet of snow to stop my Jeep in the hills, what's 6-10 inches? [​IMG]


    Man, I love my Jeep...... ;)
