BWAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh man. I was driving home from work tonight and saw this clown coming up in my rear view mirror so I grabbed my phone and snapped this pic. I wasn't quick enough getting the picture off, 'cause I was trying to get a picture of the homeboy behind the wheel too. Damn, straight out of Compton, yo! This homeboy was sporting the crooked hat, lame homeboy sun glasses, gold chains and was driving this thing like he was some kind of badass gangsta...
...a badass gangsta in a purple fucking El Camino, with purple fucking 18" wheels and over sized low-profile tires? BWAAAAAAAAAHAHAHHA! I couldn't stop laughing.
In 1981, my dad bought a brand new El Camino with the Chevy 350 V-8. This thing got up and went. It handled really good on the corners too. He never had any problems with it, he just gave it regular preventative maintenance and by the time he handed the thing down to me it had 198,000 +/- miles on the original motor and transmission. The biggest problem he had was a minor oil leak from the gasket around the pan and that was probably from my brother and me borrowing it to take to the desert in the early 90's and pushing it beyond it's limits like the dumbass kids we were. After I buy a scanner, I'll have to post some old pictures of us in the desert with this thing when I was 18 and my brother was 21. Damn those were some good times. I sure miss that truck. Lot's of memories.
After Dad handed it down to me, I put another 60k-70k miles on it still on the original motor/transmission and I drove that thing like a motherfucking bat out of hell everywhere I went. That truck took so much abuse, I'm surprised it made it another 10k miles after Dad gave it to me. That's quality right there! Now that it's Government Motors, you'll never see quality like that ever again.
When I saw this homeboy tonight driving that purple pimpin' Camino it brought back all kinds of memories and I had to post the pic. What a way to ruin a completely badass car/truck (cruck?). Go back to Compton you fucking fuck!
