    Are you sure it's a "SS" I have done a search in GM data base parts catalogs and can't for the life of me find a 78 El Camino "SS" Better ask around before you get burned on a rebadged rig. Emblems are easily swapped on. JMO. Looks nice otherwise.

    [/ QUOTE ]It says SS on the title, and has the propper badges in the propper locations. SS info I'm not too concerned about it being a SS or not. It's got a "Rust Free" body !!! It doesn't NEED anything done other then have the A/C fixed. Besides, I'm only paying $3,000.00 for it.

    Just asking.......I don't like being scammed by other people that want to make an extra buck by rebadging a rig to say it's a "SS"! Looks like you might have done your homework. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    [/ QUOTE ]Went and got it. Body is great. Needs power windows fixed. On the drive home the fuel pump went out. Ended up having it towed to my bro's house in Rathole Shitty. I didn't expect a $280.00 tow after I spend $3,000.00 to buy the damn thing.

    About 120 miles. Yeah, it blows big time. I had to borrow the money for the tow from my mother and she ripped me to shreads. But I didn't have anyone else I could call. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    That's what you get for buying a Subaru.

    Why didn't you fix the El Camino fuel pump on the side of the road?
