1980 Chevrolet Monza Review
Hmm...it never left me stranded
Kinda ugly, bottomed out on speed bumps, very tired engine
Most First Cars Aren't The Coolest Cars! — My first car. It was beater. It had a 3.8L V6 so it went pretty good, but was tired. It used to bottom out on speed bumps despite the work that was done on the suspension. Quality-wise, it was a disposable car. The hood was welded onto the hood hinges. It was produced for the sole purpose of being driven until it couldn't be driven anymore and it was almost at that point when I owned it. The engine had a lot of work done to it to try to get more life out of it, but in the end it didn't really improve the performance. I put more money into this car than I initially payed for it. Appearance was kind of hideous. Looking back, I don't know what I saw in this car. The interior was an awful tan colour and smelled very used. Gas mileage was feeble. I had to cheat it through AirCare everytime. It was an okay car for a first car. Not a cool car like other kids in my school had, but it was a set wheels that got me to and from high school and work for a few years. I ended up selling it to an unsuspecting guy. Poor guy. I wonder what ever came of it?
