    In '85, when I was in Navy boot camp, my Company Commander had two nice Chevies, a '68 RS Camaro and a '68 SS 396 Elco. So I'm chatting with my squad leader about Senior Chief's ELCO, and I made the comment about wanting to offer him $3K cash for it (it was in primer), and as soon as Senior Chief walked out to take us to class, the squad leader told Senior Chief what I'd said. 1) I wanted to stick my size 14 so far up the squad leader's kazoo he'd taste bubble gum and dog crap; and 2) Senior Chief said "Not a chance," then laughed.

    I've had different Rancheros since the new one I ordered in 71 when I got out of the Marine Corp. Later I had a 68, 77 and the 79 I've had for 26yrs. I don't care for the 60-65 downsized ones. That said there are a few years of the El Camino I wouldn't mind having.

    I had a '65 Chevelle SS (not Camino) and loved it. Later I had a '72 El Camino SS and loved it.
    I tried to order a brand new '79 Black/Silver Ranchero GT but nobody would talk to me so I bought a
    '79 Black/Copper El Camino SS. I drove that car for 265,000 miles over 35 years and finally sold it.
    Now I have a Black/ gonna be Silver '79 GT....at last.
    In between those El Caminos I had a '66 Ranchero and a '75 GT and I am on my 4th '57 Ranchero
