    SS 454 on Ebay

    The only thing I do not see is the headlight squirters that were verrrrry rare (built into top of headlight bezel) and power seat back release (also very rare). Has the fiber optic light lamp monitoring system and the fiber optic windshield washer fluid monitor. Surprised it does not at least have the 4 way power seat because the 6 way is the rare one. Nice clean very well optioned car and seems to have all original drivetrain. Wonder what they have the reserve set at .......... that may be the deal breaker. Dan

    fender search

    I collected stuff for 13 years for my restoration (completed 2-3 years ago. All I can say is good luck finding a new NOS pair (not reproduced yet by anyone). I found one of each from two different guys but I paid out the nose for them ($750 ea). Think I got the last NOS right fender in existence. Harder one to find. Leo is always a good source for all stuff Monte as recommended. AMD has started to reproduce stuff for our cars and they are real quality pieces. I used their decklid. Much heavier weight than other repros and fit perfect. In case other pieces are needed here is a link http://www.autometaldirect.com/index.php Dan

    I'd love to take a try at running a few laps at a dirt track. Love to do some drifting. Not sure I'd get Steve to be the co-pilot though. LOL

    Pinewood Derby

    Nice job. Wish my son were in the Scouts so I could have an opportunity for him (me) to make one. Was always a fun night when I was younger. I was more after the show than the go! But I did sand the ridges off nail just under head and insured I had plenty of graphite on the nails before wheel install. I am sure there are many better lubricants to use nowadays, Dan

    not a monte but.....

    Being 6'6" tall the Impala is one of the few Chevys I fit in. Had the same thoughts of getting one until I bought my trailer. I love the look of the Buick wheels. Please share a picture once you have them mounted. Dan

    Not having a great day today ...

    Mike, Sorry to see this happened on your final ride of the season ..... before you lay her down for a warm winters nap. I had a woman run a stop sign and come out from a side street across three lanes of traffic and total my first monte back in 1983. I was a kid and just had regular insurance on her but kept receipts for engine (1 week old) and transmission (one day old) and other upgrades. I got lucky and had an adjuster for her insurance company who had a son fixing up the same car and had a soft spot for what happened. They were able to give me a value between a very good condition daily driver and a show car.... I believe $6500 at the time. I then bought the car back for 10% of its stated value (salvage value) which I did. I bought another Monte and transferred everything to the new one. To me it definitely looks repairable but it depends on how much the frame was shifted if any. body work is body work .... but if the frame cannot be straightened easily on a rack its a bigger project. The most important thing is you remain unharmed other than a bruised heart for a car that meant a bunch to you. The car can be replaced. Glad your still hear to talk about it and remember she did right by you protecting you as best as her old bones could. Dan
