    Yeah those lines of the 3rd gen Monte's were sexy. That's what made me get one after getting rid of my stang. So here's mine which I just got....this is what she looks like for now...

    No it's just the hood. She's got a 350 V8 (from who knows what) that is in need of a tuning badly......

    this is mine about 3 months after i got her. back in 2003.

    and this is her last summer:

    she's looking a little neglected in my back yard right now, but that'll be short lived. i'm hoping to have the whole project completed for my wedding in september '09 on block island, RI.

    it looks about the same now, except for the side pipes and i've pulled the trim off the doors and fenders.

    mods to come will be lt1/ls1/4l60e 3/2 drop with (possibly) c6 style 19"/18" wheels, red and white heated leather bench "hey baby" seat with a full custom set of autometer gauges
