My baby

So, I finally got my baby. 1970 Chevrolet El Camino, with 350 cid(300hp) and TH-350. I drove her from Teuva to Helsinki on tuesday and it couldn't be any better day to drive around small countryroads and just cruising. I was suprised about the mpg, since I filled tank to full on Teuva and after a 250 mil(400km) trip to Helsinki it was only 14 mpg(16l/100) and half of the trip I was cruising on highway about 87 mph(140kmh). Althought there is much to do with her, but technical side is in order, so all I have to do is just drive her around and fixing little bit here and there. As I yesterday was unloading the "junk" that came with her, I found that the previous owner was going to restore her in formef glory and there was around 700-800$ worth of new items. 18 years of dreaming has finally come to end.
