What are your thoughts on the Chevrolet El Camino? Would you ever own or drive one?

Personally, I like it because it looks unique when driving on the road with more modern vehicles. Plus, I also think it looks gangster.

Not knowing anything about cars, I like it's appearance, but personally I would go for a car with more up-to-date features.

Looks very cool. My dad loves Chevys and always wanted a Camino. For myself, I'd like a smaller, more maneuverable car.

I don't care for it.

I am not a big fan of, especially modern, US vehicles. But when we talk about classics like El Camino, you bet id drive and own one!

It's pretty, sleek, and down-right cool; however, I wouldn't want one. I'm not much of a car person as it is, but trying to keep this classic in top shape is beyond my means. I'd like to test-drive one, though. I'd feel like a bad ass.

I think it's very nice looking. Personally I would never drive one. Not really my style.

It's a sweet vehicle with good framework for it's time. If someone gave it to me I would do what's in my power to maintain it as a classic piece to a collection. However, I never have never desired one although that one in the picture is amazing.

A classic that is. I can appreciate its design, half car half truck. I'd never want one though. I don't have the knowledge or the money to maintain it properly nor would I care enough to do so.

I can appreciate the fit and finish - It is very pretty! However, the whole identity crisis is very unappealing to me... Is it a car or a truck?!

It depends on where you live and if you can be your own mechanic. Old classics like that have a double edge sword for parts. 1. It is a classic, so there are aftermarket parts still made for it. 2. Classic parts are collectable and will drive up the price. If you wanted to make it more modern and make it a driving car, then look at adding a electronic fuel management and a all disc brake conversion for starters. I would think twice if you live where there is a lot of snow as they are RWD and light in the back. It makes them challenging in the snow.

Oh HELL YES!

I'd hate to have to put gas in it though...

It's an SS... '69? It looks like it has an L-88 hood scoop... I can't read the side badge with the engine displacement... If it's an L-88 I think those were 427s. It might have a 396, that is what I remember seeing the most when there were more of those around...

If I had one of those I'd be looking at updating the engine and ignition system... UNLESS it's still "stock" then I'd keep it in a garage and only drive it on nice week-ends....

Depending on the rear differential it's either quicker than most new cars or faster....
{Quick=fast quarter-mile times... less than 12 or 13 seconds.}
[Fast= high top speed... over 140MPH]
Newer cars have an edge, more gears = Quick and fast...
