New member: Monte Carlo


Jun 14, 2020
Hi all, my name is Jaden and I am a proud owner of my 1982 Monte Carlo. My dad bought this car up in Georgia for himself because my first car was actually a 69' VW Beetle. We sold the beetle cause of the rust issues and the Monte became my new ride. We bought it from the original owner who was a nice old lady and when we bought it all it needed was some starting fluid and she started right up! I believe the car had 97000 ish original miles when we got it, per the booklets and receipts it came with i have pictured below. Since the last 4 years of owning this car i have done a lot of work to it. Present day it sits on an Ez Air Ride Classic+ Airbag kit on 18" Eagle Alloy 212s. I have a pretty nice speaker system and a lot of custom work such as my "center console" and whole rear trunk minus the sub box. This car has taught me almost everything about gbodies. Me and my dad also have a 85' cutlass 442, however its super rusted out, but the drivetrain runs really good so i may learn how to do metal work soon.
