Hey there fellow Monte owners. I'm a new owner of an 88 MC. I bought it with a lil bit over 50,000 miles. It's been sitting for some years so i'm in the process of changing hoses and stuff. Runs a lil rough right now but over all the car looks good. It's white with tangerine orange rally stripes along with the saddle interior. Oh yeah T-tops too. I'll post pictures once I figure that portion out. Anyways look forward to meeting some new folks in general along with getting answers to questions which I'm sure I'll have plenty of.
Take Care

Welcome. Run a can of Seafoam in the tank, on your next fill up. Also, pour alittle down in the carb. A simple tune-up will work miracles also. Even though it is a low mile car, you are still probably dealing with the factory parts that are well over 20 years old. New plugs, wires, rotor and cap... it'll run like a sewing machine!
