many years ago, early '70s in the Tri-Chevy Assoc. club ILLinois, there was a cut down Nomad made into an ELKY. It was a nicely done job. That fellow got so fed up with the negative comments, he finally put photos inside that showed the original Nomad,........ With the tree on the caved in roof! Of course there were still folks that said fix it, but remember that 50+ years ago things were a bit different.

Having a Nomad with a crushed in roof would be the only situation that would prompt me to cut the roof off a Nomad to make an el Camino, but having said that I actually like their 'look'... much nicer than what Chevrolet produced as el Caminos a few years after the TriFive years~ The one built by Gene Smith many years ago was done so well (in 'original restored' form), if one didn't know better they would have believed it WAS an original '55 El Camino~

... and Yes, I'd Love to have that Gene Smith version in my garage!~

Well said , things were different back then . "Dare to be Different " is the current phrase. I didn't like the conversions back then and am still not a fan but I respect the talented body guys for pulling it off ,especially when it was done to a pro level. Thinking back I believe there were not too many Nomads available for a donor roof so the elky conversion was a good choice if ones roof was trashed from a tree. jmo.

One has the right to do what ever they want with oneís own car. Do you have to like it ....no. But the custom work is oneís taste. Do I like it ...no.

In fact I think the same for a chopped top on a tri five. It sucks. But itís not my car. Crushed roof by a tree certainly qualify something be done. Not everyone would make the same choice. But no different than a chopped top or putting modern bucket seats in a Nomad. It just oneís taste. IMHO I donít like either.
