I still to this day remember sitting at the dealership the night that my dad bought his El Camino. They had already agreed on a price but there was a race to get it finalized because some other guy wanted to buy it also. Loved that car from the day we bought it. Could not even count how many times we loaded it down to go fishing. When I was 16 and looking for a car, my dad asked what I thought I wanted. I told him an El Camino like his. He said we were done looking at used cars and gave me his. Then we started looking at new trucks for him. This picture was taken around 1980. The original tires had a slipped belt and they pro rated them out to the ones with the wider white walls.
