Real nice ride........
I love it!
Caps & all!!!!
only thing i keep coming up with to say is WOW!....WOW!
I love it looks great
I think someone repops '56 dog dish hubcaps. I have a perfect set of '57 dog dish if you're interested. PM me.......Mike
I've seen the 55/56 Chevy dog repop's . I'm not sure on the 57 yet , looked at them as well. I like the 58-60 dog dishes and are pretty inexpensive so far( they need work most of them) There was a 55 in the last Rodder's Journal that ran the full Corvette caps and looked pretty darn good. Running 15 x 7 American Racing Torque Thrust "D" with ribbon whites..but always look to change the look. The Nomad runs disc brakes up front so a drum brake rim mostly like won't work ? If anyone know , yeah or neah ! enlighten me !
I switched to 15X7 steelies from Coker. I wanted a larger rim anyways but I needed them to clear the caliper.
F-in beutiful, great looking elco.
Thanks for posting I think this is the best El Camino I have ever seen
Love the look of those caps... I bought a car to get a set of them Tried buying just the caps but the guy wouldn't do it.
It was a running driving 62 Impala
They ended up on my 60 Vette
That car is absolutely beautiful. Its the best El Camino I've ever seen (and I saw it up close!!) - hands down.
Oh, and that love affair you have with black steelies and black walls? I am 100% on board with you. Nothing tougher looking IMO.
Enjoy the new ride man!
Hey Mike!! Love the new ride! Clean and timeless, a real jaw dropper!
I have not made it up to Ram's Horn for breakfast in a while, as the Michigan "situation" has affected my family.
Hope all is well!
Thanks Mike and Adam......I appreciate it.
You nailed it on this one, Mike.... but the 34 Vic is still my favorite of your fleet.
i run the dog dish caps on my 59 elky.but they are VERRRY ROUGH . but so is my elky.its white, wheels are creme. caps .came from a box of parts that had been in our old barn since..........who knows. i swap them out with old americans 5spoke,red rallyes with differrent type of caps.small police caps,2 bar spinner and what ever strikes my fancy.sorta like you, do what i want ,when i want to, how i like to. thats a very cool elky.congrats
Hi Dan, the '34 Vicky is still my favorite as well because my Dad bought it in '59, I drove it to high school in '61 and still own it today...............Do you still partake in the website I first met you on a few years ago?.....Mike
I love the 59's looking great!
looks really nice!
thats the only year camino I like
Are those armrests out of a bubble top? Very clean!
SMC? Not really. I pop in every once and a while, but not enough Hot Rod stuff to keep me interested. A lot if talk, not much building. I haven't even touched my modeling stuff in months... I just kinda lost interest. Plus, I've been messing with my 38 more lately.
Glad to hear you're working with the '38. It's a nice car. I haven't visited SMC in several years.
I don't know who wouldn't love that. You couldn't ask for a better looking car. No frills, just super clean.
Words very well put.......IMO also
Mike, glad to see the pics. Really turned out killer. Luv those dog dish caps! See ya soon,
Great looking car... actually all your cars are great looking!
The best El Camino I have seen in years. Sure miss my 71 SS 454 clone I had , been over two years and not a trace since being stolen in Tacoma.
I got a PM asking me to send some photos of my El Camino bed with the tailgate open. John, you didn't include your email address so I'll post them on here.....Mike
I hope these work....Thanks to toner283 for providing me with these.
Glad you are getting some mileage out of the pic's Mike. I still have a couple of hundred detail shots if there is any other detail pic's you need/want. Just takes me a while to upload them to my email so I can send them to you.
I have seen Mikes car in person, you need sun glasses to look at out side .like he says 99% done. Outstanding.
Now, to see Mike in person is a very rare sight!!!! He did ride up to Franfenmuth(sp) last night to drop off the cars .that is rare
Nice car Mike really nice.
