Re: Doritos 1970 EL Camino

unfortunately the side pipes do not appear functional
those things have to weigh 100#'s, good for extra rear wheel traction.
the engine sounds in the commercial must have been lip synced as that engine looks weak

Re: Doritos 1970 EL Camino

That thing is a POS in every sense of the word, it has no front axle in it, and it was cobbed together for the commercial. Take a look at the first picture in the second row, where is it sitting?? in the junkyard that's where.

After the filming they got rid of it because the cost to build it was a business expense and a tax write off. Now who's selling it? the jackstick who probably owns the junkyard, who admits in the listing that it is not street legal, most likely because he does not have the title, or there is none. People shouldn't be allowed to sell a car without papers.


The e-bay listing just ruined what i thought was a cool commercial.

The name Picturecarwarehouse tells me they specialize in the sort of vehicles that are used in the entertainment industry.
