'66 Chevy El Camino | The Most Touching Hot Rod Story

1966 chevy el camino built by nick arias


Without exaggerating I can say this is the most inspiring hot rod story I have ever seen. A story that is not just about looks, horsepower or 1/4 mile times, a story about life. Justin Arias, grandson of the late Nick Arias has gone through so much building this 1966 Chevy El Camino, and after all the blood, sweat and tears it turned out great. Amazing tribute to his grandfather.

Justin shares he is very passionate about 60's drag racing, which explains the looks of his 1966 Chevy El Camino, and I totally love it. As for the sound of the 678 horsepower Arias LS HEMI 406 engine, I am sure even the late Nick Arias can hear it when the Elco rumbles down the street, and is very proud of his grandson.

Ben has done a great job on this Four Speed Films video! I hope you will appreciate it!
