Because Muscle Beats Import Every Time! — I don't like that it is not finished and that the a/c doesn't work yet. I like that it is built to my standards. I really like that it is Bill Hade Blue exterior and blue interior, and even blue engine parts! Its quick and gonna be MUCH quicker!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It is paid for and I owe no one for it!!

Cons: none, unless you hate a rock solid dependable muscle car

Ever Heard Of Murphy's Law? That Was This Car... — Okay, so it was a rust bucket... but it had personality. The brake lines had to be replaced every 2 weeks, and my rear bumber was wired to the frame to hold it on... but it was an amazing first car. I'd love to have it back! I miss Murphy! (Yes I named it after Murphy's Law)

Pros: classic

Cons: not the greatest on gas

Elky — A big P.O.S, but i loved it. Good for hauling stuff but bed was a little small. The cab was pretty small too. A chevy , so it was easy to work on. Not the best looking of all the El Caminos, but a good car anyway.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Hot rod and a truck

Cons: Houpty
