Two years ago I decided it was time to buy an El Camino that I had been wanting, and after searching for 7 months I found the perfect one for me, a bone stock `71 numbers matching 402 big block southern car with cold factory a/c. Mulsanne blue, black vinyl top and interior. The only thing it didn't have was a 4 speed, which is the first thing I put in it. Since then the poor Buick has been a little lonely, only putting 212 miles on it that summer and other than tearing more stuff apart on it and shoving it into the back room, I've barely touched it since then. So today I finally got it back in the shop. WTH, I can't work on it if it isn't in the shop. Hopefully it will be back in action by spring. Winter here drags on for sure, but when you're trying to get stuff done by spring, spring tends to come sooner than we think so I have to get started now. So here it is today. New body mounts are first on the list, and it's a long list. The El Camino is sure fun to drive and I love it but my Buick needs me.
