I saw this next car in the tips inbox and instantly seethed with indignant rage; How dare someone send in this offense against taste and decency? What do you think this site is? Do you think this is the kind of site will post any sort of El Camino’d Cadillac with an LT1 V8 under the hood? Well, let me tell you…you’ve got the…well…you’ve got the right place. This is a go for posting. Find this 1984 Cadillac DeVille El Camino offered for $15,000 in Oakland, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
This next car came as a tip from Jim who writes; This car is like a mullet with a tuxedo. Yes, like Pabst Blue Ribbon in a champagne flute. Like roadkill served on fine bone china. Like a Raider’s linebacker in full uniform heading to Centre Court at Wimbledon. Like an expensive car featured on Daily Turismo. Find this 1997 Cadillac Seville flower car offered for $6998 in Norwalk, CT via craigslist.
The Ford Ranchero was Ford’s version of the El Camino — and it offered a decent combination of car driving capability with the utility of a pickup in the same Monday morning up front, Friday night out back as a mullet. Some scoff at the awkward proportions of the sixth generation Torino based Ranchero, but I think it is rad. Find this 1972 Ford Ranchero offered for $3900 in Scottsdale, AZ via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
Voice of the world’s most interesting man; I don’t always drive an El Camino, but when I do, it should have a big stonkin modified V8, a Muncie 4-on-the-floor, a gigantic cowl induction hood scoop, and matte-black paint. Drive thirsty, my friends. Find this 1986 Chevrolet El Camino offered for $13,000 in Danbury, CT via craigslist. Tip from Cory.
Folks into trucks are always arguing about which kind of drive system is better — many say 4-wheel-drive trucks are the best because you can drive through anything, while others say the basic rear-drive pickup is the best because you get to fish tail in the dirt…but, naturally, they are both wrong. The best kind of pickup is the front-wheel-drive pickup, particularly one built on a Cadillac chassis. Find this 1974 Cadillac Eldorado Pickup offered for $9995 in Edgewater, FL via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
A diesel powered GMC Caballero is a stupefyingly eccentric vehicle…but captivating in a way that is difficult to describe. However, the photos in this next advertisement — and I hate to be the guy that criticizes the artistic integrity of a random stranger’s cell-phone photos for a car advert, but I am today — are just as equally baffling. Ignore the fact that the photos were taken at a Jiffy Lube, we don’t need to talk about that, but there is not a single photo of the entire subject vehicle and the best shot is in portrait mode of 2/3s of the Caballero. I guess I know what a Caballero (GMC’s version of the El Camino) looks like, but the lengths the photographer goes to avoid a single aesthetically pleasing shot of this oddball is downright staggering. Find this 1983 GMC Caballero Diesel offered for $12,000 in Wichita, KS via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.
This next thing is a hunk of old American iron for $3800…which isn’t a bad thing at all. It is certainly better than a fancy premium Wordpress theme that crashed an entire installation and required a complete nuke and rebuild of a website. I should really stick to cars and pay someone to deal with these electrons. Find this 1974 Chevrolet El Camino offered for $3800 in Rumney, NH via craigslist. Tip from TeleArrow.
I am loath to post anything from the Faceplace Marketbach, but now that craigslist charges a small fee ($5 at printing time) it seems that many cheap sellers have migrated to Zucks world. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a Luddite when it comes to social media and all things Web 2.0, but […]
This next car comes as a tip from Matt who writes: I usually wouldn’t pass on something in this bad shape, but finding a Dodge Rampage in any shape these days is pretty rare. Find this 1984 Dodge Rampage Prospector offered for $1150 in Moreland, GA via craigslist. From the seller: 1985 dodge rampage condition: fair […]
At the risk of sounding like an old codger…I’m going to say that “back in my day” if you wanted to modify your pickup truck, it usually involved some knobby tires and removing a few letters from the tailgate to spell “yota.” But this…this is a whole ‘nother level of customization and will probably end […]
