Getto Superstar — I got my Monte Carlo when I was 15 years old, 3 engines 6 trans,5 rear ends, 2 complete color changes, 4 different sets of rims, interior swap & numerous upgrades and I love it more than ever. These cars have a attitude about them that very few cars have. Kind of like a pretty girl that is a kickboxer or something. Most people like the chevelle's,camero's,bel air's but hell there are 10 million of those out there. I wish their was parts out there for them though, that is the only thing that sucks about them.

Rust Bucket — Check the floor boards, great place for rust on this car. Im sure there are others out there in better shape than this one. Lots of space to work in the motor. Old. out dated. never seen one as bad as this. Hope yours is better

You Can Cruise But You Can't Travel — Originally this car was a V-6, a school kids car, but that kid let it sit and got covered with leaves, snow and dirt, when I decided to rescue it and then put a 454 CID Eng on Steroids, among other power additives, Lil Monte is a real Ground Grabber, and is sort of a sleeper, but you don't want to awaken Mighty Mouse to put on a Gun Show wooo-weeee so much fun to leave people behind a True Street Machine.

Awesome Car To Bad They Don't Make Them Anymore But It Is Great — Well the car was siting for 5yrs sense the brakes went out, but this summer me and a friend started working on it a little by little, first the front brakes then the back brakes. Then after those we had to replace one Brake line. After that we replaced all the spark plugs then one belt and the engine coolants hose. After that we replaced 3 of the lights new plates and tags cleaned the interior did some work in there myself. Now we need to drive it too a shop and see why the drivers back brake is leaking, were also getting an oil change. But the car runs great on 5yr old gas we really need to get rid, it also needs the radio fixed and the the Old AC juice sucked out... but other wise its a great car. it also has a 305 engine in it. the engine was replaced in the 90s after my sister blew it up.. so they put a 305 in it.. so basically a new engine.

My First Car So I Love It, Alot Of Work Went/is Going Into This Car — Under the Hood: - sbc 350, 600 cfm edelbrock carb, flowtech raptor mufflers, headman headers, mild comp cam, Body and Frame: - only a couple tiny rust spots on the rear quarter pannel. dented rear quarter pannel, scraped metal by the head light/front quarter pannel. Frame is solid, no rust at all. - 4 new shocks and 4 new coil springs Stock interior, hoping to put some bucket seats in and get rid of the column shifter. Only thing left to do is get my carb. adjusted and make sure its hooked up right, and get the car painted.
