El Camino's Rule — awesome car if u can afford the fuel, handles like a typical Ute, great power and acceleration, wheel spin in first 3 gears, good if you can get one with out rust, bench seat bad on corners. the best car eve.r

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: the look and the power

Cons: fuel bill and handling

Best Car I've Owned — This car has a rebuilt 396 engine w/ 400 turbo tranny. It is all origional with the exception of the motor and paint. It is the correct engine, just not the origional. It is a vey sturdy car. Everything works very well on it. The exterior has one spot where there is rust starting to break through, other than that it has no bondo, no dents, bed is scratched up on the inside, but in good shape overall. It does have a tear in thge vinyl top about a half inch long and a seam in the seat that is starting to come out. It gets about 12 mpg and drives wonderful.

Pros: runs and drives excellent. very comfortable car to drive

Cons: gas mileage is poor but to be expected for this engine

1970 Ss 396 Elcamino — Love the car because its different. This truely is a survivor in that it still has the numbers matching engine and trans. I am not a big fan of the wheels but hope to have those changed by the end of summer

Pros: Its a big block!~

Cons: It has a turbo 400 instead of a 4  speed

Exciting — I dislike the constant Maintenance for the car. These older cars need constant care. However, I love the power that the car has. Going from 0 - 60 is very exciting and literally puts you back in the seats. The fuel injection has added more fuel efficiency and a great throttle response.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: 550HP to the flywheel, TH400 Transmission, 12 Bolt Rear-end (Posi), Hydraulic Brakes, Power steering, Fuel Injection (Fast-EFI).

Cons: Drinks lots of gas.
