And now it is mine!!!!

Ok so I mentioned in a previous blog post that I would love to buy a black El Camino. It is not really practical to have and I already have a perfectly good car but after work today I was driving home and saw this car for sale in the Harris Teeter parking lot. I am not sure what it was that made me decide to pull over but I just had to check it out. I really had no intention of buying the car but the owner was still there posting another sign on the window. I asked him how much it was and he gave me an offer I could not refuse. He had inherited the car from his older brother who had passed away suddenly. He really was looking to get rid of it. When I say really, I mean REALLY! I have been saving up for a pair of race wheels but come on, how could I pass up the opportunity to own my dream car!!?!! The exterior is close to a perfect dent-free matte black. The interior needs a little bit of work. It is not perfect but mostly superficial imperfections. I am going to take it to the shop tomorrow and if everything goes well I am going to be the proud owner of a black El Camino!! Now . . . the second part to owning an El Camino is this bike rack in the back. Anyone out there into welding?
