My El Camino
1980 Conquista
So different
It looks like a truck
Drives like a car
Registered as a truck
Two toned beige and forest green
305 cubic inches

Dual exhaust
straight-piped with glass packs
Feels slightly rough but looks so smooth
Sounds so beautiful
Had to clean it well
It’s now registered and insured
700 dollars and yet So Unique
Been sitting for eight years
80,000 miles
Pulled it home
Started up
