Business In The Front, Party In The Back! — My El Camino is in great shape for being 27 years old. It only has 89,000 miles on it and there are no rattles, squeaks, or clunks. It runs like a champ and is very low maintenence. It has a 305 V8 with a 4 barrel carb and a Turbo 350 3 speed auto transmission. It does 0-60 in about 7.5 seconds, which isn't bad for an ''80s smog car, but due to the tall 2.73:1 rear gears, could be better. It gets between 14 to 16 mpg in the city and about 20-23 mpg on the highway. It rides better than a Cadillac!
