Daily broke down, So out came the El Camino

Post by DOUG213XRJ » Mon Jun 17, 2019 5:52 pm

Felt go to drive the 78 El camino ( didn't drive it at all last year). It towed my 4X8 trailer with mowers with no problem. The Motor ran about 180 with a 160 thermostat. I have the electric fans that come on at 205 and off at 195.

That's very cool. Great looking El Camino. Glad it's back on the road.
