Exactly. I think that is the car from Trailer Park Boys. Smokes, jalapenos chips, and Brother's peperoni.
Btw, lots of my friends work on TPB and Trevor (Mike Jackson) is a friend of mine from childhood.

out of the trailer park: europe is some of the funniest stuff i've ever watched....

Why did they not like steel toe?

Their concern was that if the steel were ever exposed it could come into contact with the carbon fiber part and damage it. They softened the rule within a year of the factory opening. They still preferred composite toe, but allowed steel as long as there were no cuts in the covering (steel couldn't be visible).

This was at the A350 wing factory in ~2012. We had to wear booties over our work boots to walk on the raw CF wing.

Fun fact, I walked on the upper wing panel of the first A350 that flew while it was being assembled.

Steel toe boots get very cold and stay very cold.

Nothing I liked about steel toe boots although they did save some minor injuries. Twice over the years I was around when they were crushed down on a foot. Once they were positioning a piece of equipment that weighed over twenty thousand pounds. Trying to horse it over a few inches by hand while it was still in the air the man put a foot under one of the skids the equipment was mounted on.

The equipment was set down fairly gently on the man's foot. He started screaming. Even when they moved the equipment off of his foot he kept screaming. The steel toe had smashed mostly flat and now the steel toe itself was causing the pressure. The man lost a toe or three off his foot. I think some the steel toe took off, some were amputated. I can't look at or pick up a steel toed boot or shoe without thinking about that incident. Steel toed footgear tends to be hot and heavy too.

Cost more than I can afford. I wish I could afford an 80s El Camino and hot rod it.

I can't remember the year now, I think the last without dual headlights, but I bought a Malibu station wagon. I had a body shop and thought that it would make a nice parts runner and advertisement.

The plan was to make a panel truck out of it, put a moderate engine in it, and nice paint. I would have put more engine in it but my wife had a heavy foot without the skills and experience to stay out of trouble.

Panel trucks and sedan deliveries are cool. I miss station wagons. You used to could fit a bike behind the rear seats or fold the seats down and you could sleep in there. Now the station wagons don't even have 3 feet back there. I think 78-79 had the single headlights. I like the Malibu coupes of that cycle, too. I think the last bodystyle of El Camino ran from then till 88 or so, being upgraded with dual headlights in 1980. I love the G-Bodies of that era. I had a Cutlass and a Grand Prix. The fastback Monte Carlos were cool, too. And of the the GNX was the baddest of them all.

Station wagons are alive and well, they just call them SUV's now. Many of those are identical to what we called a station wagon.

Something I had that I have only seen one example of was a genuine SUV or panel, pre '73. Remember the board and strip beds in the pick-ups that always rotted out? This panel thing had the board and strip floor in it. I thought with it indoors and comparatively safe some nice wood finished natural or lightly stained would look fantastic in there. Another project never finished, never really started.
