1959 Chevrolet El Camino owned by Steve "Jake" Jakobowski of Inkster, Michigan. In 1959, Steve's El Camino was fit with a pair of Jimmy Jones Bubble Skirts. "The skirts on the 59 El Camino ran from the door to the rear bumper, and they featured a large bubble and a large rainbow." Other modifications included a tube grille, dual dummy spotlights and a custom white rolled and pleated interior. Jake's El Camino did also feature a white rolled and pleated tonneau cover. The El Camino won a 1st Place in the Post War Pickup class at an early 1960s Detroit Autorama. Later on, about 1961, Jake sold the El Camino to Dick Anderson of Dearborn, Michigan. Dick was a high school classmate of Jake.[1]
