Re: Lets see some team El Camino pictures

Well, let's see if I can remember how to post pics, been racing and in the garage too long.

The 72 Elky when it was White, and on tour with the NMCA in 2004. I baught this in 1998 and it was an SS clone with a 350 engine and trans and the 10 bolt 2.73 rear axle ratio with GM ralley's at all 4 corners, then I decided to go racing again, and this is how it started. Best et with a stock 454 all steal engine and a glide trans, and, a 12 bolt was 11:02 @ 123mph and it was a killer and ran the number like church on Sunday

Then the transformation and wedding. I met my other half, and we got married at RT.66 Raceway with the Elky racing in the NMCA Superbowl of Street Car event, the wedding was in the pits and was GREAT, the Elky!, well, it wasn't finished being built yet but it made 2 passes, one qualif. pass that went 11:86, forgot the mph, and then I lost 1st rnd but ran a 11:65 and broke out. That was with the new 505" big block with the wrong top end parts on it that were not matched very well just to make the wedding. That's 1970 Corvette Yellow by the way.

Pinks All Out at Milan Dragway in 2007, couldn't make the 32 car cut and catch the 9.90 cars, it was currently running 10:10-10:15's.

Then I made the final four at Norwalk, Ohio in the 2nd Pinks All Out show and got beat my .007 of a sec. and it was MY race, but I tried a 4 hole spacer under the carb thinking I won't get picked and well, I got picked. I raced the White Charger who went on to win the show, so if I had beaten him, I would have won!!! oh'well, that's racing.

To date it has run a best of 9.81 @ 137 mph with a 10.5 tire with the stock configured GM rear suspension, but I ripped the frame with the new engine combo and I had to do this.

Now, this is the present day look of my 72 Elky, hasn't hit the track yet, needs a chassis cert. and then fuel and mo money!!! Should run 9's and how deep into the 9's? who knows but I am targeting 8.90's with the help of Steve Johnson from Induction Solutions.

Enjoy the picks. Balance of pics on the next page.

Re: Lets see some team El Camino pictures

I guess it's time to post some pics of my Elky. First pics are the 'before' pics. Yes, that the original paint, motor,interior, etc. My Dad bought it new in june of 66 and it's been in the family since new. Shell on the back has not been off since it was installed back in 66. Motor is a 283-2bbl with PG. Has been sitting for a while in my garage waiting for ME to get around to doing something about it, so a couple of months back, I decided if I didn't get to it now..or it would never get done....so the project has begun.
First the before pics...kinda dusty from sitting so long in the garage.

Re: Lets see some team El Camino pictures

Part 2...

Engine is back from machine shop and mostly put together. Still a 283 ( now a 287!), but now with Edelbrock cam, manifold, and a Holley 4bbl. Pertronix distr, bored .030 over and comp ratio @ 9.5. Sanderson SB cast headers will go on soon. Frame has been powder coated and most all of the hardware in the front end. New ureathane bushings are going it to replace the rubber along with HD sway bars F&R. Underside of the body has been media blasted and sprayed with a Durabak like coating, PG has been cleaned up and had new seals installed. Third member has been blasted and painted. New spindles, and disks will going on soon. Plan is to get it all put back together and sorted out, then do a repaint when all the mech work is done. Gonna stay with Sandalwood.

Smog stuff is not going back on the truck! I have the pump, exhaust manifolds, plumbing, intake manifold, distrib, carb, etc. sitting in a box in my garage. If you or somone has interest in the smog stuff, PM me.

The shell was a custom built deal from a small trailer repair and manufacturer in North Sacramento. All built out of square alum tube frame and white sheet trailer alum. Guy who built it is long gone, I would suspect.
Check out the phone number on the maker's name plate. I'm not sure if the shell is going to stay on the truck and I might be willing to part with it.

As for original, I'm planning on keeping it mostly that way, with a few improvements...i.e disk brakes on the front, dual master cyl, power booster, rebuild of all the soft suspension parts(rubber) with urethane parts, sway bars, Bilstein shocks. Have some Air-Lift bags to put in the back springs and hook up to the air lines, as I'm not going to put the the Delco air shocks back on it. It's gonna get a Magnaflow stainless exhaust setup with dual pipes. I still have the original wheels and dog dish caps if I decide to go that way, but right now I'm thinking American TT mags or rally wheels.

I fully understand the elements of a 'correct restoration', but decided against going that way, as when you are all done, all you have is a very shiny OLD car with all the same short-comings that they had when they were first built. My goal is to have something that is a bit more drivable with better handling, stopping, and power that original, while keeping the look of the mid-60's period. I've done the car show thing with my Vette, and that gets kinda old, boring, and nit-picky, so after much thought, I chose to go the way I'm going. After all, GM produced in excess of 25,000 of these each year they were built, so the El Camino is NOT rare, and mine certainly was not a special model. I'm old enough to remember when these things were new, and I still remember my dad telling me when I wanted to buy a 40 Ford in my youth, that "they weren't all that great when they were new...why would you think they got better with age?"

Cheers, Jim
