Rotting In Style - 1979 El Camino

The Random Auto is back in Sitka, Alaska again.  Alaska is simply beautiful.  Not all the nice sights are mountains and glaciers, sometimes those sights that excite people in the forms of rusty GM cars.  Just me?  Oh, OK.

Well, this time I bring to you another moss covered, rust invaded GM car from the Last Frontier.  This time it’s a 1979 Chevrolet El Camino.  This car is the brother to the 1980 Cadillac Seville I featured last time, and if you saw the Caddy, you’ll see that this car is not much better.  Moss and rust have consumed this car.  As you can see, the top layer of the hood is simply gone.  I’m not just talking the paint.  Most of the top layer of the metal is gone.

There are similarly bad rust spots throughout the rest of the car as well.  One part that really caught my eye was the “EVRO” badge on the front of the car.  I noticed it was broken, so I thought it was missing a letter at the beginning and the end, and that this was some special model!  Nope.  Turns out the badge originally said “chEVROlet”.  Oops.

The interior is a mix of good and bad.  The dash just seems dirty and not really damaged.  Same goes for the driver side.  The passenger side is starting to develop its own eco system, and the back completes it with its own lake.  I guess we can assume the floor pans are somehow not rusted if they are holding that much water.

Usually I like to talk about power, but this year alone offered four different engine options so I have absolutely no clue what is in here.  I can tell you that I doubt whatever is under the hood will matter because I don’t think this car will ever drive the beautiful streets of Alaska again.  It will sit in Sitka, Alaska where it shall remain Rotting in Style.

The waste of skin meat sack that treats a decent machine like this ought to have their ass removed.

Wow must be all the road salts I'm guessing to rot these cars like this kind of a shame at one time that car could of been salvaged I bet.

Probably... But she's long gone now...
