    1979 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Review

    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

    Great little reliable car. Did not excel in any areas but overall very solid.. and I plan to buy another one as soon as I can find a good one.
    Power Ranked 1979 Plymouth Volare better.
    "That depends on what engine the car had."
    Back Seats Ranked 1979 Plymouth Volare better.
    "Solid but comfortable."
