    Who am I?

    Patrick, This pic was taken in early 1972 when I drove to visit my brother in Parma, Ohio, a 200 mile trip for me! Bruce

    Dennis, I thought it was an invitation to introduce ourselves to new members and others who didn't know us. 17 years, WOW! Next someone will say are cars are over 47 years old. Yes, I still own the Murray Peddle car from my profile. Someday I may even finish the restoration on it. Bruce

    Who am I?

    Greetings to all FGMCC members! My name is Bruce Stange, I am the proud original owner of my black 71 Monte Carlo. I ordered my Monte as a senior in high school and paid cash $3735.00 with money I earned from my Detroit News paper route, cutting grass and other tasks like this. It still has it's original 350 4BBL NO A/C and now has 161,250 miles on it. I grew up in Utica, Michigan and now live only 5 miles from my childhood home. Can't wait to go for a ride! Bruce

    trouble removing door pull straps

    I believe I broke all of mine trying to "slide" them off. I tried to release the latch with a thin piece of metal like a feeler gauge but it didn't work. To keep them in place, I added a hunk of "dum dum" and that has worked. Good luck!

    Camber/Caster Settings

    I copied this article many years ago (1990) and had my 71 set up to these specs.

    What is your preferred company for fuel/brake lines?

    I used In-Line tube and they fit great. Bruce

    No, I earned all my gray hair. If I suddenly had black hair, someone probably would notice! Bruce

    Welcome to the club! I hope my 71 will still be around and in my family when I have Great Grandchildren. Our 10 and 8 year old Grandsons really like cruising with us now. Bruce
