I just got the November/December issue of the National Monte Carlo Newsletter and my car made the cover!! I know it's just a low volume publication, but it's my only claim to fame. I'm still waiting to see some Montes in GM High Tech Performance Magazine. I'm surprised that nobody has shown some of the sweet cars like John Bzdel's ride.

I have a bunch of pictures of my car, just haven't got around to putting them online yet. Setting up a page on cardomain is on my list of things to do this winter when it's too cold to work in the garage.

Don't put them on Cardomain, if you must, you must, but put hem in the photo album here.

Jason

As soon as I got my NMCOA copy this month I took it to my wife and said I know that car!

Congrats. I plan to send some pics of my Aero to them soon.

To join the NMCOA go to http://www.montecarloclub.com/Join_Page.htm

It costs $35 a year but you get a cool sticker to put in the lower corner of your windshield. They also sell some really nice fender covers with the club logo for cheap, like $10 last time I bought a set.

Jason - It may be low volume, but a decent amount of us here get it. Had no way of putting that car and name to your msg board ID here - now I do! Congratulations! Nice looking SS!

Mike K. - If you sign up to the club, and can get away for the weekend of June 10-12, we'd love to see you up in Decatur, IL for the Monte Carlo Nationals!

Thanks guys! My back tires are 255/50/17 and the fronts are 235/40/17. The back rims are 17x8 and fronts are 17x7. I forget what the backspacing is, but there is no rubbing and I can barely fit one finger between the back tires are the frame.

I'm just getting anxious to start working on the car for spring. My parts just arrived last week, Hotchkis springs & rear swaybar, all new Moog front end suspension componets. It should hug the corners now!!

I just got a digital camara so I'll post the before/after pics!
