Autocrossing a 1965 Chevrolet El Camino | Why I Drive #19

Published in Video

Arlo Karikomi was first introduced to autocross in 2014. In his backyard sat a 1965 Chevrolet El Camino that he had owned for 17 years. But it had been sitting unused for several years after a head-on collision on a Los Angeles street. After making the car roadworthy again, Karikomi took it out to his first autocross event, where it performed exactly how one would expect a rough, stock 1965 El Camino to perform. Of course, Karikomi also recognized his own inexperience as a performance driver and it was then that he decided that he and the car needed to grow together.
