Turbo Car — Great car fast and fun to drive very rare turbo car. Attracts lots of spectators at cruise nights and shows. People don't believe it is what it is. Lots of looks when i'm out driving some good and some bad for how I drive.

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

Pros: Fast stylish car

Cons: Fuel economy sux but i didn't buy it for this

You Can Only Go One Way With This Car, Done Out With A Big Engine And Clean Looks. — Acceleration i Ok. New master brake cyllinder so braking is exellent. Handling is a bit loose. Drove it from BC to Alberta to BC to Alberta with no problems except gas. Few rattles in the door from the stereo other than that pretty smooth ride. Exterior is Sexy, mettalic blue Sparkling paint and Nice chrome. Interior could use some plush! few dash cracks. Payed $2500. This car is Amazing to drive, So beautiful, definatly a head turner.

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

Pros: She a beautiful classic.

Cons: Commuting for an hour or two to work and back (gas)

Sturdy Car — I've been driving a 1981 Monte Carlo for just over two years. It never lets me down, but the gas mileage always gets me. The driving is excellent, and it has little to no problems. Couldn't ask for a more sturdy car. If you are looking for a car that gets from point a to point b, this works great. Don't exxpect much on the racy side though. It's acceleration is poor, but that is to be expected from the tall gears.

Pros: Little to no hastle, dependable

Cons: Gas guzzler, slow acceleration

My First Car — This car is not much to look at, but it will always hold a special place in my heart. This car started with a weak 229 cid engine. The old 229 was replaced with a 305cid high output motor from a 85' Pontiac Trans Am. Since then, I added: dual 2.25" exhaust, chrome wheels, Edelbrock intake manifold, Holly 600cfm carburator, Hooker headers, Accel ignition system and a high-flow catalytic converter. With this car is the start of my love for American V8s & muscle cars.

Pros: My first LOVE

Cons: Bottomless money pit

Needs Constant Repair — I'd like it better if I could find information on the 1981 MONTE CARLO LANDAU TURBO not just the standard production model. Information is so hard to find, if I didn't own one I would think someone just made it up!

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
