What happens when you combine two California icons — the tony SoCal neighborhood of Bel Air and El Camino Real (aka The King's Highway)? The Bel Camino, of course. If Chevy had introduced the ElCo in '57 instead of two years later, this is probably how it would've looked. Excepting, of course that doltish Bowtie rear window. They should've just put Center Line Convo Pros on there, tubbed it and airbrushed "The Heartbeat of America" on the tailgate. We mean, if you're gonna do it, do it. You've already thrown subtlety out the window. [Thanks to Jason for the tip.]
