When I go to over 60MPH on highways but not on sideroads (it doesn't shake on sideroads) my 1970 El Camino shakes rapidly. I thought that it could've been because of the wind or an alignment problem. My front tires also wear on the outside edges instead of in the middle. Any help? Thanks.

Tire balance on the shaking problem and underinflation on the wear (given your description). On bumpy sideroads you may not notice tire balance problems because a bumpy road will mask them.

If I were you, the first thing I would do is go get your wheels balanced and rotated... that is usually the problem..

Since your tires wear strangly you probably need an alignment which never hurts but also you might want to check your front shocks, if they are gone, that will cause them to shake.

there are other things that will do it too but usually those are the most common.

Hope this helps---
