NO it's NOT an El Camino

I had this one guy come up to my truck at a cruise-in and say "Is that kinda like a Elcamino?" I said no.. an El camino is kinda like this this. hehe, El Camino didn't start production until 1959. One of our club members put a sign on his once saying "NO it's NOT an El Camino" . lol.

Re: NO it's NOT an El Camino

I get that all the time, "Hey Man, Sweet El Camino". It's a Ranchero, you know made by Ford. And the first thing that comes out of his mouth saying to his friend was "it's an El Ranchero" lol.

Re: NO it's NOT an El Camino

I worked with a guy that liked to call mine a dodge rampage, but heard the el-camino thing a lot.

Re: NO it's NOT an El Camino

There is nothing worse than sitting at an All Ford Show...and some moron comes up and says that's a nice el camino.... hehe... twice this year that has happened... I just politely pointed out that this is an All Ford event and the only el camino here is the dumpster sitting around the corner.... Please Don't Litter

Re: NO it's NOT an El Camino

I had a similar thing at an All Ford Day, where some kid was looking at my Cleveland, and said to his Dad, "Is that a Chev?"

Re: NO it's NOT an El Camino

Sarah, I liked the story about the kid that had to correct his dad when he called Red an elcamino.

Talking Re: NO it's NOT an El Camino

On a related topic, with re to my '73 Rancheo 500, upon seeing the fender script, I have been asked if that is the Ranchero with the 500 horsepower Cleveland and also asked if it really has a 500 cubic inch engine. The answer of course is always yes!
