This Car/truck Is Amazing But With A Few Cons To It — This car is a tank on the road, i love the truck bed on its car body. Very cheap to own, and easy to fix. Just need to tweak the engine a little bit and this car will be a beast on the road lol

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Cheap to own, very useful, and very unique looking

Cons: its old so it'll have a few problems, not very fast and it only seats 3 ppl

Car/truck/car/truck??????? — All purpose utilitarian truck/car? Burns rubber like a champ. Parts are super inexspensive Has this great storage area behind the seats under the truck bed. AH nothing better than a built 350 4 bolt main. Pass every thing but a gas station

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: drives like a car but wait it's a truck I mean car ah truck?

Cons: Starting to get rusty

I Just Love The Looks It Gets While Driving — It rocks and will blow the doors off yours any day!!!! Yes I have had many engines in it but the 383 stroker that Danny and I built is a beast. Gas mpg is around 12 but who cares. The best time I have had with it was when we took it to the drag races and Diana was able to ride with me and she giggled like a little girl all the way down the track.

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

Pros: It's just awsom

Cons: none

Awesome — Really quick off the line, expecially in the lower gears, has gotten some body work done and a wee bit of frame repair has also had to be done. Needs some work both inside and out. Terrible gas mileeage but with the 350 under the hood parts come easy. This car is a blast!

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

Pros: Powerfully Fun

Cons: Bad MPG

1978 Chevy El Camino — Awesome Car! I love it, have always wanted an El Camino, and finally saved up for one! Pure American Muscle! Has a 350 with an auto transmission on the floor with bucket seats. Unreal take off power. I am very happy with it and would for sure recommend it to another Chevy fan!

Pros: Pure Power!

Cons: Likes it gas!

Fun To Drive. — Has a 350 V8 that I put in and a rebuilt transmission that I did. Runs really good. It's black on black and its starting to fade but still has color.

Pros: V8, 2 seater, and no A/C

Cons: paint is bad and body/frame isnt looking good

Super Sport Truck??? — Chevy needed a truck that could push past expectations, and this truck did the job, the 305 smal block had a substantial 250 horsepower, but the 350 small block made the truck even better if you had the right equipment you could get at least 375 horse power out of this late 70's monster

Pros: Fasr motor, Fun to drive, work truck and muscle car!!

Cons: the back is lighter than the whole car, its bad in snow!!!
