A couple of weekends ago we were sitting in the office aka around the fire pit. while looking on Craigslist for a new cargo trailer, I all the sudden had a mirror ball go off in my head. I say mirror ball because it's more my style than just a plain ole light bulb. anyways, I told everyone that I want to purchase a vintage Chevy El Camino. Reason being, you can haul a trailer with it, and it has a bed of a truck to load more junk in. What if I want to go shopping when I'm at all my shows? Where would I put my stuff? Also, I think it would be great when you are having one of those days when you can't afford a hotel room....and you need to sleep.
If you don't know, an El Camino looks like this.
A lot of times, you see images with some tasteless lady posing next to it..just like in this photo. I would like to add, that I will look much more appealing to my El Camino than this chick.
Seriously?? I'm glad I have some class.
Everyone must of thought I was joking, but I honestly wasn't. I even added that I would like to locate some longhorns to place on the grill of the car. I'm thinking I will add some burlap, lace, and some jewels to my longhorn.
The mount would look something similiar to this. I don't think anyone would take advantage of a lady driving a Chevy El Camino that had horns on it?
As a true Junkin' girl, I'm always looking no matter what. While dropping my kids off at school one morning I saw some horns sticking out of some junk on someone's front porch. I'm glad I ended up stopping there because she had all kinds of neat things. I even found a quilt for $2! I know all of you will be jealous of these, but don't get too mad, because I've already dressed them up, and they no longer look this gorgeous!
I took a trip to the local flea market on Saturday to check out what was happening. I ran into this guy, and he assumed I was really crazy. When I told him the story of what i wanted to do with an El Camino, I'm not sure if he understood my language, because I thought the story was hillarious, and he didn't even crack a smile...he just looked at me like I was stupid. Some people just don't get it!
I took a pic of these and decided that these were bigger and better. They were only $40 bucks!
Don't worry, I don't plan on doing anything to this extreme.
All in all...I honestly think the El Camino would be an excellent addition to my stash. Plus a GREAT project that will be so fun and Exciting! Keep checking back for the EL Camino project updates!
