Back in the Eighties and Nineties, Choo-Choo Customs ads were all over the enthusiast magazines, so somebody must have been buying their customized F-bodies, G-body El Caminos and pickups, but they’re just not that common nowadays, either on the road or in the Hemmings classifieds, which is why we took notice when three Choo-Choo Customs cars came through in the last week. First, the 1989 Pontiac Firebird Formula Bandit II, which brought the spread-eagle glory of the screaming chicken to the third-gen ‘Bird. From the seller’s description:
Many of these conversions were lower Firebird models, so this one is even more rare. #21 of 500 produced in 1989. New decals, paint freshened up, working air conditioning, needs stereo, new window sweeps, full power accessories, t-tops with original GM bags. Original 5.0 liter engine and auto transmission. Great driver for the money.

Next, a Choo-Choo that many more people will immediately recognize: a 1986 Chevrolet El Camino SS in black and gray two-tone. From the seller’s description:
This is a one original owner vehicle! Custom ordered Special Choo-Choo Edition. Garage kept. All original paint, in classic black and silver paint scheme. Beautiful burgundy cloth interior in excellent condition. V-8 engine, automatic transmission with 55,833 original miles. Loaded with all accessories, including a/c, power brakes, steering, windows and locks.
One more Choo-Choo El Camino, a 1987 this time, also with tonneau cover and aftermarket wheels, though the seller maintains it came with them. From the seller’s description:
These Choo-Choo Elmos have become very rare. 1 of 861 El Caminos built for the last year in 1987, this example has only 50K original miles and is completely stock. This truck is not modified; it came just as you see it. It’s equipped with the 305 CID / 190 hp V-8 and TH200-4R automatic transmission w/overdrive, a new a/c system, power steering, power brakes, original AM-FM/cass radio w/4 speakers, and has the original spare tire and tools. With a fresh tune-up, and fully serviced, this car drives like a dream, and is ready to cruise.
