El Camino Benicia

From Michael Moore: First Street, Benicia December;
"El El Camino is usually [like every day!] nosed in on the jetty where the guy fishes, every day…for what, who knows. But this day the city had it blocked off so he was parked on First and I got a side shot. An original unmolested SS, 396 I think...
... later, and further up the street, this shortbed Ford, the hideous graphics so typical of that era [late seventies? early eighties?] still intact…"-MSM
