If you’re new to the hobby and don’t get why black-plate Californian cars are such a big deal, then take a gander at this 1959 Chevrolet El Camino for sale on Hemmings.com. Sure, it might have a couple spots of rust, but that’s on a non-undercoated car that’s lasted more than half a century on the road. Almost anywhere else in the country, that’s a recipe for ironoxidus maximus. From the seller’s description:
