any pro touring el caminos here?

Just curious if there are any here. Post pics if you got them. I`m planning on finally picking up a 65 elky I`m doing a trade for and it already has 17" american racing wheels so I started thinking of going in the pro touring direction. I`m mainly interested in 64-65 models but post what you got.

Thanks. I remember Clints Elky. It was pretty clean.

Re: any pro touring el caminos here?

Mine is working more towards "touring" and less towards "pro"

An El Camino can do anything a Chevelle can... make just a good of a starting point... has a better weight distribution to begin with...

But you do have to decide on just how much you want to compromise the hauling potential of the El Camino.

I`ve had several chevelles and el caminos and like them both equally. I`m not really sure how I want to do this one up but I figured since the PO already started heading in the PT direction with the 17" wheels I`d look around and see if thats what I want to do with it. I`m still considering just going with rally`s for a clean driver look. I`m not planning to hot rod this one like I have done with my others, at least not at this point.

Keith Anderson's is one of my favorites. ...wish he hadn't sold it though.

You know what? There is another guy on here with a 67 Elky that's pro-touring. I think his name is TunedbyTad or something like that. He'll probably chime in.

I know which one your talking about but last time I saw anything about it on here it was stock with the wheels. I know he updated it but I haven`t found any threads on the current version. I`ll have to go look again.

Re: any pro touring el caminos here?

Keith's was real nice. Search KAA and check out his in cabin videos on the track. Unbelievable.

I will post my 71 Elky shortly. Not nearly as nice as Keith's (work in progress), but I do have the same ZR1 rims, lowered to same height, 4 inch cowl, and a 470BB with a 174 supercharger.

Re: any pro touring el caminos here?

Keith had huge brakes, FI 496, all the suspension goodies, and many a Corvette guy upset that he could and would run them down on the track. That was a real deal car that he drove on the street and raced on the track, even was featured in a magazine.

Mess with me, and you mess with the whole trailer park!

I've modeled my '70 after Keith's, but it has a 400+hp LS1 and an Auto (daily driver). Next month GW "A" arms go in, new spindles/steering arms from www.customworks.com, C5 Brakes front/rear. Parts are in the shop and ready to go on. Already has C5 wheels, 255 front and 285 rears.
I drive my cars and want to take it out to ThunderHill and a few AutoX's.

I had also modeled part of my Gaslab similar to Keiths...
