El Camino — It is built like a rock, and flys after a tune up. Great gas mileage, strong transmission and great braking. Cheap replacement parts. Not everybody has one. This car is amazing to drive you rarely feel any bumps.

Pros

When you need the power it's there.

Cons

Eats alot of gas and the inrterior seriously needs some work

Powerful With Little Complaints — This is my dads 87' El Camino. It rides smooth and has plenty of power. Despite its need for body work it is by no means a car to overlook. It can do medium tasks any truck can do, and at the same time has the smoothness of an early muscle car.

Pros

Super rare, and can roast the back tires

Cons

not a whole lot of horse power, and its hard to find parts for it

1987 El Camino Ss 1 Of 900 — Its not the fastes now a days, but for its era, it was high performance. Its worth probably close to $10,000 right now, but if i restore it to mint condition and hold on to it for a while it could be worth a lot more.
