Nah maybe hit a dirt drag or two but mostly just to be fun on the street
Is that an Elsinore in the back
Went by there on 70 from Las Cruces (didn't see any Oryx) then took 54 all the way to Santa Rosa. How many miles is it across the range on 70? Hunted pronghorn around Carrizozo a couple of times.
Wow... somewhat surprised that I missed your post with what I had previously relayed, but merely due to being in a hurry I guess.
The young man mentioned within my previous post had kept telling me that he wanted an old El Camino. Never liked them, myself, causing me to rib him over it and leading us into occasionally debating the matter while wrenching or at the beach with everyone.
Well, one day I was photographing an extreme action flatwater event and upon arrival learned that he was racing one of his own builds and already on the water with it. Was a surprise, having not seen him in a while, being that I'm not into flatwater; thereby, I became curious after his race when he said, "Come on over here".
Lo and behold, he had his new, old El Camino with his self-built motorcycle sitting up in the back of it, just like within your photograph, lol... I about died laughing and happily began snapping away shot after shot for him. Was a strange, fun day!
Guess I shall have to consider briefly charging up my Florida device and giving him a shout, in order to learn whether he still has it. My guess is yes, but you never know with him about anything at all. I am more glad that I snapped those shots for him of it now, after having seen that of your own.
No, but I had one. This is a 1982 XR500R, a little 4 stroke phase I went through.
you were within eyesight of my house in sleepy old Alamogordo in that case. The hunting is awesome out there, but other than that I didn’t enjoy the area. I’m not sure the mileage across the range, it is pretty wide though. That ride from Las Cruces to Alamo is boring as heck. Those oryx are badass though! I saw a few on 54 going to El Paso. I’d love to get a group together to go elk hunt out there someday, I have some great spots for monster bulls
Tough to draw 34 & 36 out there.
64 Chevy nova. I got my hands on & rebuilt a 328 from a 65 corvette wit the camel hump heads. My dad said I couldn’t drop it in it until the 6 banger needed pulled. Keep drag racing it for pizzas with that 6 in it , but couldn’t get it to pop. So I got the bright ideal of removing the washer fluid hose and taping it above the butter fly. Filled up container with racing fuel. That afternoon after school was running another car and running somewhere north of 90. I pushed that washer fluid button and toasted that sixer.
After that I was eating pizza on a regular schedule.
LoL I have ran ATF fluid like that for a smoke out what ever behind you can't see crap
Sounds like a shine running trick there lol
I picked up a 64 Chevy II from a farmfield when I was 15. Did all the body work and engine and tranny work myself. Redid the interior, had it painted candy apple red! Hell of a car, someone was always trying to steal something off it. Won a lot of 1/4s with it. Insurance company wouldn't continue insuring it due to all the stealing problems, so had to sell it. Worked for a farmer one year that broke his leg. Planted his 350+ acres for him, harvested all his hay and harvested his crops in the fall and put his winter wheat in. He was getting around descent then. Cut & split his wood prepping him for winter. He had a car collection like I've never seen. Had to have 50 cars and 20 tractors. He had a set of Chevy Cameo pickups with matching serial numbers, 55-59 I think. Anyhow he had 5 other Cameos in diff states of restoration. He finished a 58 and dropped it at the house one day as a thank you for all my work. He wasn't gonna take no for an answer. Anyhow was forced to sell it in divorce. I hate that woman! I'd like to get another Cameo or a 64-66 Chevy truck 4wd.
When I was in the service, I got stationed at Lakehurst after I had surgery so I could rehab in Philly. I came home and found a Chevy Monza Spyder 2+2 with a 263 v8 in it, after a few upgrades at my dads garage, we pulled it off the lift and ...Damn, it was scary. Got back to NJ, and tore it up on the twin bridges at Toms River going into Asbury park. Not to many Rods in that area could hold a candle to that little piece of muscle car, it was a sleeper that made some cry and made me some coin, and got me some T&A.
That’s sharp!!! Still got it?
Bought it in 2010, parted with it last year when the family grew and had to move up to 4 doors.
