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.

My First Car! — Loved it it was great in the snow. I built up the 267 V8 so it kept up with 350's, and it was still running with over 140,000 miles

Miles Driven per Year:20,000

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
