hello there, new guy on the forum. My names Brian. As the subject says i had a monte ss before in highschool and now im back at it again. This time its an 85 ss, the one i had previously growing up was an 88 and really really nice. This one on the other hand, is a project that i really haven't began to work on yet. It needs some work. I plan on making it into a barely streetable drag car, hopefully with a 496 in it. smile lol..i just hope this SS doesn't get stolen twice.

thanks...i couldn't help but buy another SS smile i didn't want t tops this time around because of how they leaked, and especially here in washington. it's definitely a project though..needs paint, a rear spoiler(broken)a headliner, new front bumper supports,headlight buckets..it has a salvage title but ive been too consumed into dropping the new motor into my truck that i haven't had time to work on this thing. eventually though!! smile

thanks...i wish i had more time and money i'd make mine look as good as several of your guys rides!! im jealous! haha, i have pics of my highschool monte but they were scanned from an actual photo and not the best quality...pretty much was a midnight purple, was only purple in the sun, i got tickets and the officers wrote black on the ticket...haha...but my new monte i have sitting at the parents driveway is a couple different colors, it definitely needs some work but im excited to get to it eventually! i think the monte is the sexiest car alive!! hahaha

WELCOME!

I would WORRY about a "tow truck driver" asking about MY Monte??

Keep an eye on it........if it goes missing, look at him FIRST!

Good luck on getting it up to speed!!!

haha, so there it is. it definitely needs some work. i bought it early last yr and haven't really done much to it. some would say a waste of money but it was only 1k. i bought it thinking i could get it on the road quick to drive as a DD while i tore apart my xtreme and put it under the knife for the new motor. i had a new 4.3l built for my truck with a new cam, ported and polished heads, upped the C/R to 10:1, headers, lightweight flywheel and all that fun stuff. BUT, i just haven't gotten around to the monte yet...it seems like it was stolen or something, i had to replace all the doorlocks but i havent done the driver side yet, it has no stereo. it was at a junkyard when the seller bought it so it has a salvage title because of the front end damage that was fixed. i want to just primer it black that way it doesnt look so bad but been just too busy.

oh,and it runs, sounds good except has an exhaust leak. haha. it spins the tires easy too, feels like the transmission is in good shape as well. its also sitting on some s10/sonoma zq8 wheels also. which don't really look all that bad.

haha thanks...my neighbor really wants to buy it too it seems like thats all he talks about with me...im undecided though, i still have to get it pass state patrol and all that because of the salvage title, which i actually think i lost...i can't find it...i have the bill of sale but i don't know what happened to the salvage title.

finally got off my xxxx and uploaded the only pics i had of my highschool 88 ss...damn i wish i still had this thing. i put dark tint on it, blacked out the taillights and had those somewhat see through black headlight covers so it was pretty much murdered out as they call it...had a friend from highschool try and copy my paint scheme onto his, and his probably turned out nicer than mine but thats ok. everyone at school loved mine more smile lol




and i might try and go with a similar paintjob on the project i have now, but....i don't think i'll go into blacking out the taillights or headlights this time around. lol
