On May 6, I took the Elky to the First Annual NECOA Invitational in Belton, TX. No, I didn't win any awards. But, we had (I think...may be off a vehicle or two) 76 El Caminos registered at the event. I didn't know there were that many within driving distance. Even curiouser is the fact that they all showed up!

Here are some pics of all those Elkys - 1st gen thru 5th gen, some clunkers, some reeeaaaalllly expensive (as in they did not even drive to the event, but rather had their cars transported in a trailer) show cars, and some middle-of-the-road cars...or crucks, or trars...whatever~

I'm the cook......and NO FAT JOKES! I readily admit that I look like crap with no makeup, my hair isn't done, and I'm wearing crappy car-working clothes. I had fun~

The El Camino outperformed my expectations. I was fully prepared to be stuck on the side of the road awaiting a tow truck, but I made it the 140 miles there and 140 miles back without incident. Woohoo!

Keep in mind that most women look just as good as they get older as when they were younger, it just takes longer in the morning.
