We know who built El Camino

In the June 27 edition of Real Wheels, Merri Hanjora shows a 1973 El Camino owned by Eddie Smith.

On June 30, I informed her that Mr. Smith did not build this truck. It was built by Dick Baker, in our body shop at home. He owned Kenny’s Auto Wrecking at the time and the truck was a wreck with roof damage. So he got the idea to chop it and then put on his signature white vinyl to the tailgate. This is the second time I’ve caught Mr. Smith taking credit for this El Camino.

Give it up, Smith, all the old body men and everybody who knew Dick Baker knows who built this truck and it certainly wasn’t you.

Connie Baker, Bluffton
