Really Fun To Drive And Quick For A Small V8. — I really like that this car is fun to drive and isn't the worst thing I've driven when it comes to gas mileage. Had it to drag strip last fall and was really consistant and had a ton of fun with it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Tons of power and fun to drive!

Cons

I don't like my gas mileage and have considered swapping to an OD trans or adding a GearVendor.

Great Car All Around — 80s performance, other than GM turbo cars, was lacking. My Monte SS has an upgraded rearend, a T400 trans, and a 383 Lunati balanced and blueprinted stroker kit putting 310hp and 356lbs of torque to the ground. Gas mileage would be my only complaint, but it's a blast to drive!

Nostalgiac Ride — Really nothing bad about the car minus the gas consumpstion. I would like for the front seats to be better adjustable but I can take care of that with aftermarket seats. Other than that Im pretty happy with it all in all.

Best Car To Drive If You Are Willing To Pay Lots For Gas — -immediate takeoff, -instant throttle response, -takes hard turns well -accelerates through and out of turns exceptionally well, -corvette cam, -extended A arms, -rear spoiler (not a ricer spoiler, actually increases performance and downforce) -engine sounds beautiful (anything with 4 or 6 cylinders is incomparable in how they sound) -automatic transmission with manual override (instantaneous upshifting and downshifting, -when car makers today say a new car is fun to drive, they are wrong. this car defines fun to drive, even without a screaming fast engine

Can Be Customized Easy. — All ratings are low. This car can be restored into a beautiful custom. The original motor is way under powered. It makes a great street or drag car. I want to install a big block crate motor. Watch my progress.

Chevy — Performance - It runs good but goes through brakes like every two months. Quality - Its old so of course it needs repairs but the motors new about 5, 000 miles on it now. Aperance - I love the way the Monte Carlo SS looks in every year.

Awesome — A solid vehicle. Passed down from my father to myself. It could use a little work here and there but overall it's fine ride. The gas mileage is less than desirable but the engine itself is solid car. But it's mostly sentimental.
