First Car - Rwd V8 — It was an awesome car - for the summer. It sounded awesome and with only a 305. Had good acceleration and handling however, in winter time if you do not have patience or enough experience with RWD in winter, it can be pretty frustrating and scary. Due to how old it was and that it had not been taken that good of care of by previous owners, problems started to rise.

Pros: I owned a monte carlo. Looks cool. Was lots of fun.

Cons: Old and not taken care of by previous owners. Wish i still had it.

The One That Got Away... — This car rode like a dream - just floated on the pavement! Learned a lot about working on cars with this one - they don't make 'em like that anymore! She had a 267 cu. in. "baby" V8 and I wished I still had it today! Restored it after a wreck and won an award at a car show.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Classic Style

Cons: Gas Mileage

The Monte Carlo has been a classic from its inception, to have found one with only 35,000 miles in absolutely pristine shape was both a surprise and a great blessing. Thank you Car Gurus! Read More
