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.

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 […]

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 […]
I was planning on posting mostly old German cars this month because of the whole “Oktoberfest” thing, but then someone mentioned that it was the first day of Fall/Autumn…which reminded me there was a whole section of the country where the season of scorched thighs just ended and now it is possible to drive your […]
In 1967 when John Lennon wrote and later performed his hit “All You Need Is Love”, he was naturally lauded for his optimism and simplicity in focus. However…he wasn’t quite correct. Because if I had been the 5th Beatle, I would have insisted that we sack this George Harrison character, and then re-title the song […]
I don’t often travel to the wild open desert, but when I do, I enjoy staring at the starry night sky and pondering the existential questions of the universe. Such as; Why are we here? What color should my next car be? What would a Chevy Nova Pickup look like? Yeah. The basic stuff that […]
The E30 generation BMW 3-series was available with a number of different body styles, including a 2-door sedan, a 4-door sedan, a 4-door station wagon, a 2-door convertible, and a 2-door pickup El Camino version…whoa….wait, what? I only wish that this was a BMW built thing, because the world needs more Utes. Find this 1986 BMW […]
You’ve seen them before…and they go by many names. Not quite a pickup truck, not quite a car…but they are known as a Ute, coupe utility, utility, an El Camino, a Picarup, Ranchero…or simply a vehicle where you can go to church on Sunday, but carry the pigs to the market on Monday. Find this […]
