The story on this 87' Monte SS is a guys wife owned the car, hit a deer, he tried to repair it, gave up on it, and it sat next to the barn in mud for 5 years. I purchased the car for cheap and I've been working on this project for a few months now. We did a few body mods. The drivetrain going in it is a twin turbo 5.3 LS. These are pics of when I first purchase the car.
