The black 60 El Camino with the 20" wheels was built at work.
Lots of stuff people don,t notice,Handmade grille,headlite bezels,bed trim,taillights etc etc.
Also,all the emblems are flush with the body and it has carbon fiber inserts in the 1/4s

Steve, thanks.  You are right, I would not have noticed all of the mods.  It's not my cup of tea but obviously is a very well built car.

That wouldn't be the first wheel choice I would think of on that car, but it actually works pretty good!
