Chevrolet El Camino SS
We expect Wiz Khalifa to own atleast one classic car in his collection. This model is one of those classic cars and it was based on the same concept as the Chevelle SS. As a result of this, the two similar models are painted the same by Wiz Khalifa, which could confuse you from the front. It is when you look at the rear that you would figure out the exact model.
