To those of us who find beauty in the trucks, the Chevrolet El Camino is the Mona Lisa of pickups. Introduced in 1959, the El Camino was designed as a truck in a car wrapping. For a span of nearly 30 years, Chevy produced model after model of these smartly styled pickup trucks, each with car-like luxury. Though production ended in 1988, the handsome pickups continue to be highly sought-after prizes for discriminating truck and car collectors.

The '59 looked like a rocket taking off. It featured bold front fenders that flowed back to sculpted gullwing fins. Its slender roof supports provided a nearly unobstructed view for maximum visibility as the scenery flew by.

Described as a "personal pickup", the 1979 body style is most often voted "best-looking". It was built on the Chevelle platform and was beefed up to muscle car status with a 450 horsepower engine. The Super Sport accentuated with wide, bold racing stripes, was often seen "haulin" in the fast lane.
