    Monte Pull Behind Problem

    I’m glad there were no injuries or damage to your Monte. Like you said, thankfully you were close to home and were able to resolve the frame issues.
  3. Jim, Last year was the Sopranos first visit to the Syracuse Nationals. It is an outstanding and massive car show venue. We were extremely impressed with it. We displayed our Monte’s on Friday and had a lot of traffic and interest. We also handed out all of our FGMCC cards and met many Monte owners. Word spread quickly. On Saturday they all decided to come park together with us, around us or near us. That was what made my decision to try to organize and get this Mini Meet up and running. Thankfully, my “Soprano” brothers are willing to assist me with this mission. As you know, the gates for parking on the NYS Fairgrounds opens at 1201am on Friday morning. Vehicles are lined up for hours prior waiting to get in and get their prime parking spaces. All of the roadway and grass area parking were taken prior to our 7am arrival. We found a good area near an intersection with tons of traffic and parking stantions to secure our pop up tents to. Hopefully we will be able to secure this area again. We were able to expand parking as we needed. At one point last year, I believe there were 12-14 Monte’s parked by us. I will contact those that I know are coming, as to where we land. We do use our Monte’s daily to caravan to and from the show, go out to dinner and attend the the excellent nightly “Cruise In” at the Syracuse Nationals Host hotel. The city of Syracuse does really roll out the red carpet for this event and does it’s best to accommodate everyone. It is really a great event and well worth taking the ride to check it out and join us and make this 1st Mini Meet a success. Membership forms will be available onsite too.
  4. It’s approximately 325 miles from where you are on Long Island. We drive it in 6-7 hrs depending on traffic and pit stops.
  5. We will all be parking together once we figure out where we will land. Parking is first come, first served. I will have a tent with the club banner and post where we are. Hopefully your Monte will be up and running and you will able to join us. Looking forward to seeing you and spread the word. We are looking for a good turnout !!!
  6. We look forward to seeing you there and this becoming an annual event. Spread the word !!!
  7. Steve, We rolled in last time around lunch time. We are not staying at the host hotel. We are staying at the Holiday Inn Express- Dewitt in East Syracuse.
  8. Please see the posting in the General Forum regarding this event.
  9. I am planning the 1st ever, First Generation Monte Carlo Club - Mini Meet at the Syracuse Nationals in Syracuse New York on July 19-21, 2019. This particular show is held on the New York State Fairgrounds which is almost 400 acres in size. It is the largest car show in the Northeast. It had well over 8000 cars with 400 plus vendors at last year’s show and grows bigger every year.This is the 20th Anniversary of this event. 2018 was our first year attending this show and it was outstanding. I attended with 3 other FGMCC members and our Monte’s. We received a lot of traffic and attention, and met many other Monte owners, who did not know about the FGMCC. We also met some other club members there too. With the blessing of the FGMCC officers, I have decided to hold this Mini Meet. The plans are as follows and are tentative. Thursday - pick up registration packet and tickets for Syracuse Nationals upon arrival at the host hotel, Holiday Inn Syracuse- Liverpool 441 Electronics Parkway Liverpool, NY 13088. Friday -Carravan to and from the Syracuse Nationals Car Show, 7am-5pm. ( No FCMCC judging) Cruise to host hotel for nightly massive “Cruise In”. Saturday - caravan to and from the Syracuse Nationals Car Show 7am-5pm. (No FGMCC Judging) Possibly Dinner together with FGMCC members ??? Pizza or local restaurant and “Bench Racing” afterwards or cruise to Host hotel for nightly massive “Cruise In” Sunday -Breakfast, Load up and travel home. Show is from 9am-2pm for anyone staying. If this “Mini Meet” is successful, I will work on additional activities and try to secure a hotel with enough parking for club members tow vehicles, trailers and Monte’s at discounted rates in the future. For additional information, and to register, go to www.syracusenationals.com Any other questions please contact me at Medic9435@yahoo.com, PM me, call or text (631) 445-1958. Notice - You must be a FGMCC up to date, dues paying member to participate. This is also not a replacement for either of the Western or Eastern Meets. Thank you, CK Collins aka “Montemedic”.

    Stock Exhaust Sysem for SS454

    I have a Pypes stainless steel exhaust system on my Monte SS. Depending on what you are looking to do as far as stock, (factory correct) I would go with a Gardner exhaust system. They make an excellent product. I wanted a stainless steel exhaust system with free flowing turbo style mufflers and went with Pypes. They make the same system in aluminized steel too. It’s on my Monte now 10 years now, looks like new and sounds great. I get a lot of compliments on it. I do not have a lift and didn’t want to install it on my back so I had a local muffler shop install it. It fit very well with no issues. I went with straight dual exhaust, no H or X pipe also. Any questions, please PM me.
