RealRides of WNY - 1980 El Camino

You can search the brochure for this 1980 Chevrolet El Camino, but I don’t think you’ll find that the hood scoop seen on this one was ever offered from the factory on that year’s car/truck mashup. And before you ask, no, it wasn’t shown in the Malibu catalogs either. But the Elky could be had with a bevy of other extra-cost add-ons like the ones shown in the illustration below. It was available in 14 different colors, and came in base, Super Sport, Conquista, and Royal Knight models. We saw this one back in 2015 parked in Wheatfield.
