10k: Studemino: 1987 Chevrolet El Camino Custom

The Chevrolet El Camino is an early hybrid, combining the style and performance of a two-door American muscle car with the usability of a pickup.  It was the ultimate example of the American male having his cake and eating it too; a precursor to long hair in the back and short in the front, having wives who have a job and take care of house/kids and promoting world peace while invading Afghanistan at the same time.  Somewhere along the way, someone took it too far.  Someone wanted the groovy front end of  a 1950 bullet-nose Studebaker mated with the utility of a pickup…but I fear he may have gone a bridge too far.  Invading a country and overthrowing the regime because its neighbor is harboring a terrorist mastermind is one thing…but this…way too far.  Find this 1987 Chevrolet El Camino Custom for sale in Grand Rapids, MI for $8,900 via autotrader.  Tip from Dave.

Excellent idea…

The front end looks like a cartoon character from the latest Pixar spin off from the Cars franchise, but is apparently a kit available from studemino.com.
