Best Car I Drove — I bought this car a couple years ago for $3,500. The guy was originally asking $5,500 for it, but my dad was able to talk him down. I have yet to get this car 100% on the road yet. It does run, but I still need insurance for it. From the little bit I drove it around the neighborhood, it handles great. Acceleration is outstanding with it's 305 V8 engine. The only thing I won't like about this car is how much it's going to guzzle gas...My uncle (who is a mechanic) estimates it will get about 15 MPG. If anyone knows anyone selling any older Monte Carlo SS, you should definitely buy one. These are GREAT cars!

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.)

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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.
