Some days, when the news is slow in coming and server recalcitrance is causing you to rip out your hair in fairly large clumps, it just seems like there's no light at the end of the tunnel. And then a reader sends in a tip. And it's about an El Camino-esque conversion. What's more, it's about an El Camino-esque conversion done professionally on a Caddy DeVille by the Caribou Motor Company for none other than Evel Knievel. All becomes right with the world; you break out the cyanoacrylate adhesive and secure the recently uprooted hair back into place and dream star-spangled metalflake daydreams about candy-colored airborne motorcycle projectiles and ornate capes. And sweet, sweet El Camino love. Thanks, Alex.

That is pretty car, but I think it was made by a car Customizer by the name of Gene Winfield out of California
