These El Caminos are still in daily use by this contractor. Pretty cool, imo:

I took that picture today. He has four of them, not sure where the fourth is, unless one of the guys took it home for the weekend.

I remember quite a few businesses that used Caminos as fleet vehicles. After production ended, they all bought Toyota pickups instead. :hissyfit:

I drove by a funeral home in central Massachusetts not too long ago that had a gorgeous mint condition navy blue early 80's El Camino for use as a flower car. It was pretty neat to see the little El Camino lined up amongst the giant Cadillac hearses and limousines; wish I got a picture.

Finding one of those flower cars is the Holy Grail for an El Camino collector. A virgin car with very low miles and always garaged, but they never seem to come my way.

So I guess this wouldn't be a good time to tell you that a friend of a friend happened upon one for a thousand bucks...... and then let it sit in the tall grass and mud in his backyard for three years and rot away before he started to use it. The only reason he started driving it at all was that he totalled his other vehicle and needed it to go to work. Most of its beautiful navy blue paint is now covered by $h!ty bodywork and brown Rustoleum. Sad, sad, sad.

It's okay; I want to kill him too!
