El Camino man hits the road for annual Paul Bunyan Vintage Auto Club car show


Sometimes known as "Mr. El Camino," Luvern "Ike" Eickhoff, seems to live up to the nickname when he stands next to his vintage Chevrolet El Caminos parked outside his home on Lake Beltrami in Bemidji.

With nine of the cars, Eickhoff and his wife Avis are getting ready for the Paul Bunyan Vintage Auto Club's 26th annual Car Show Sunday, July 19. The 1965 cherry red El Camino will likely be one of the cars he'll bring to the show this year, said Eickhoff.
