Re: Time Out: 70 El Camino Side Project

Luckily it was a slow speed impact so there were no injuries (other than the other drivers pride). Insurance stepped up but once again the Camino was in limbo for repairs.

As it turns out, this was a blessing. By far, the worst area of this vehicle was that rear passenger quarter. There was an obvious repair done previously.... well, poorly done. Now the damage was replaced w/a re-pop quarter skin & the door was repaired. I welded up some trim holes on the tailgate & we brought it to the body shop so they could prep it w/the damaged areas.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....
