It's A Beast — Love the look , sound and acceleration through the gears even though it has an automatic trans. This is the classic G body design. Interior space is great as is trunk room when needed . Overall an awesome modern day muscle car.

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

Pros: The 383 I did for this car really makes it like a true NASCAR

Cons: Gas mileage , it has a carb.  Need to update to FI or just throw an LS3 in it one of these days

Gonna Sell It. — Once again, another awesome ride. Got a good deal on it, swapped the crappy 305 out for a better built 350. Has decent power, wish i had more... interior is like brand new. Very clean, could use a paint job.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Im the second owner

Cons: Needs a paint job

Monte Carlo. Nuff Said. — They don't make cars like this anymore. It's actually steel. Rides like a Cadillac. Looks better than anything curvy or egg-shaped, or hybrid. Cheap to fix, easy to work on, great car for a beginner restorer, or a seasoned race car driver. Not for sale, sorry. ;)

Pros: it was my grandma's

Cons: nothing, I love this car.

Great Car — Car is a great car decent power and pretty rlighiable. only had one problem with it so far. but slowly finding other things that need to get fix due to previous owner's cutomization. this car is a nice cruiser. however highway driving it seems to need another gear runs about 3000 rpm at 65.

Pros: love this car and once i get it where i want it it will be a true head turner

Cons: needs alot of work on the little things

It Was A Nice First Car — i like the fact that it was rear wheel drive, however it did not have enough power and it was an automatic. it had very nice handleing as far as drifting is concerned, especialy concidering it had under 150hp and weighed a million lbs. i would have much rather prefered an ss over the 4.3L. two peices of advice: flip the throttle body cap upside down, and saws-all the muffler off lol.

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

Pros: DONUTS AND BURN-OUTS!!!!

Cons: 141 HP

Count Of Monte Carlo — Runs and drives great, the 305 can stay until I'm ready ($$$) for an LSx swap. The body is in great shape, and I got it for a hell of a price, and even drove it home. You cant beat that for a project. A few minor things and this can be a DD.

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

Pros: Big, nicely styled.

Cons: The 305

Project Car — the tranny had bad slippage and the brakes were iffy. really loose steering but the body was in great shape. the 4.3 liter engine used oil... a lot of oil and gas milage wasnt the best. it is a car to drive on a slow sunday cruise

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: loud engine and sharp body

Cons: 0-60 in 35 seconds... enough said
