Old-time TM contributor Ricardo dropped us a note this week with the above gem from CarDomain. Yes, that’s a 1988 Oldsmobile Delta 88 (the one your mom probably owned), lovingly converted into a less pricey (and possibly more fuel-efficient) El Camino. Bonus: With the market for El Caminos driven out the roof by collectors, this probably cost a hell of a lot less.

Seriously, this looks like a lot of fun. You can see a pretty cool little garage shop behind the car in some of the CarDomain photos, so we’re betting this was totally a garage creation.

Have you seen any cool shop projects lately? If so, drop us a line. We’d love to feature ‘em here on TM.

    Awesome! The 88s were comfortable, fun to drive and deceptively fast. I miss the crap out of my black 1988 model. (It looked just like the one in Lethal Weapon.)

    LOL. I once saw a similar white taurus pickup at a gas station one time. That was at a time before I had a camera phone.

    The market for El Caminos hasn’t been driven out the roof that much. The people I’ve seen with El Caminos can’t seem to sell them off, even for a few hundred bucks. May have to start buying those and selling them to collectors.
