    BUILD THREAD 1988 Monte Carlo SS Frankenstein project

    Here's roughly 3 years of work on a t-top MCSS. We're doing a full restomod, floor, quarters, t-top portion of the roof. The whiter doors came off a different car that had been sitting in a warehouse since the 90's and the trunk panel on the 14th picture was an unused extra that we were told was...

    1979 Monte Carlo. Has not seen road in almost 15 years

    A few years ago, I want to say 2012 or 2013 I bought my dads old Monte Carlo to save it from being scrapped or torn apart. Towing it from his drive way to the storage yard was the first time it had moved since 2005. I have done very little to it considering how long I have had it. I ripped out...

    Are G-Bodies the "New" Classics?

    So I've been thinking about this for a while. While there's still a healthy aftermarket for '60s and '70s-era classics, the pool of originals in decent (restorable) shape is shrinking, and prices are going up accordingly. Do you think the G-body has become kind of the new "classic" car to...

    Project Pontiac Grand Prix 2x2 Aero Coupe

    Just wanted to share some pictures with people that may appreciate this car. Found it behind an old body shop, and it had been sitting for 20 years. Bought it at a very reasonable price. Was not sure what I was going to do with it, but I tinkered with it and got it running. I was not impressed...
