I'd offer to go look at it for someone, just out of morbid curiosity, but there seems to be plenty of good pictures there to tell the story. Looks like someone put a lot of work into it, but doesn't do anything for me, and I'm a fan of El Caminos.

Incidentally, Cruisin' Classics is where I got my 57 GMC from, although I bought it from the owner who just had it in storage there.

I guess there's an ass for every seat!............ but IMHO, someone wasted a lot of time and money throwing this thing together!
