    Another wheel and tire ?

    I run A 5" backspacing on mine. as you can see, no issue with tire scrub on wheel well. Jeg's sells a rally with 15"x 5" BS
  2. Well, looks like mine is going to be down the rest of the year. They have started on my road out front and I am not driving on stones in my Monte. Learned this lesson coming down to Carlisle, Pa. a few years back. The last time they did our road it took them 6 months to finish(snow was flyin'). I will be upgrading brakes(disc in rear) , steering, and gauges. really wanted to be in Syracuse with it for the meet up there too, oh well. It's been since 2008 on the road, and needs a little attention.
  3. Looks like you are deep into the rebuild. Question on the hydroboost. when you last drove it ,how was the braking on it? I'm thinking of doing the same.

    Another wheel and tire ?

    Jeg's sells 15"x5" backspacing Rally's ..will fit with No Problems ...... mine with 275/60/15 NItto's If you run into down pours,Slowdown!!
  5. Dang! Mine was #542250
  6. This is a great mini-meet too start here in upstate NY. The last time I was there(2014), I saw at least 15 First Gen's there and only a few were members. I remember handing out all my FGMCC cards to folks. Sure would be great to see them all in one spot on the grounds. I think if you were going the whole 4 days there ,the best place to be sitting would be at the front gate to see them come in each day. Its the biggest on the East Coast I know of. Lake George, Atlantic City are big but ,this one is bigger .They claim 8,000 cars,I know it's got to be close to 10,000 (through the gate each day) ,because all can not fit on the grounds. Any car, any year, customs, gassers, lowriders, and don't forget any car that is in a Magazine or online media will be there. You can't get to see all of them in a day either. minimum 2 days and you still won't see all of them. I hope things work out for me to be there, may not have my Monte ready by that time though, going through some changes(never done are they?) .Be good to see the "Saprano's" (Long Island Crew) there too. Each one of there cars are a special treat in my mind.

    72 bucket seats

    Very Nice!! Good to see "after" pictures. Just wondering if that bucket is a power bucket seat? looks set back more than the passenger in picture.
  8. If at all possible and my key switch doesn't break, I'll be there on Saturday. I'd like to meet up with you on Saturday, could save a space for me?

    Pre purchase inspection

    I had done this for a member looking at a '86 monte carlo SS in Pa. I looked at it on Saturday ,he drove up Monday and purchased car. I think if you find a car, a fellow member could inspect its for you.

    Oh, what's that? Big Block Monte Carlo? Pretty sweet indeed. Welcome to the site. Glad to see another Monte Carlo being cared for and not stripped for a Chevelle build.
