Nothing special about this Monte. No SS, no rare options just a super sweet car to drive and take me back to the good old days!

Since no one really had any hard luck coming to the show we awarded it to Jim Crockett,because of his last five years of hardship with his Monte. Jim can fill you in. He really got torched with that car by a "bodyman"

Apologize for not loading those pictures as soon as some of y'all would have liked but I work for myself and honestly I had forgotten all about the eastern meet and loading pictures once I returned to my customer cars this week.. all of our past officers, meet directors present, and future are all volunteer we have full-time jobs run our own businesses, or even have families. Yes a lot of the pictures were on my Facebook profile first but that is simply because I loaded them as I took them while I was at the Eastern Meet, all of the pictures at the banquet of members recieving awards and me handing them out...and the pictures of members with their cars were done with my mom's digital camera. I told her to load them to Facebook first so then I downloaded them to my phone so I could load them on this website as I had time I remembered once I logged in tonight and seen these post.

(CAPS ARE FOR YOU, LARRY!) I Joined FGMCC in 2012, but had family health issues and missed the Annual Meet in Hiawassee that year. In 2013, Monte  was in body shop beginning in February, couldn't make Carlisle. In 2014, still in shop, ready to final block sand, couldn't make Somerset. In 2015, still in shop, but I took my 1972 Corvette to the Carlisle Annual Meet, just to prove I was real. In May of 2016, Monte was delivered to me in worse condition than I gave it to the bodyman. The pics tell 1/2 the story. I was ashamed to bring her to Norwalk. So, in 2017, I swallowed my pride and brought her to the Hiawassee Meet, just to prove she was real! Had a great time. Followed my son both coming and going. He drove the triple black '75 Monte. We barely did 95 MPH going down, but hit 105 at least 3 times going home! Really nice father and son trip! He made it home, but I ran out of gas only 3 miles from house. I wonder if it was a jinx from the award, or maybe the Mustang I passed right before she ran out? Anyways, thanks to a great bunch for all the friendship and good times. (We MISSED YOU, LARRY!)

Yes, the holes were left under the Quarter trim, left and right, cracked windshield, racked hood, dimpled rear window trim, sanding marks on rear window and rear quarter glass both sides, left fiberglass and bondo in rear wheel wells, destroyed rear wheel well trim (couldn't get screws out, they're still there! trim isn't), body is cracking and bubbling and peeling all over, left off the bumper to body fillers in rear, sanded off the lip on interior trim on rear window, wet sanded car with rear window out and interior still in, left off mounting/adjusting parts on headlights so they will not adjust, scratched my show panel putting hood on, and the color is several shades too dark. Then had the brass to tell me to take it to shows for 2 or 3 months and leave it out in the sun so the paint would cure. Then tells me he fully expected me to call him in 2 or 3 months to have him do it all over, again. And, this was a friend of 35 years who can and has done beautiful work on several show cars! All that was wrong when she went in was 6 or 8 three pointed "starfishes" or paint bubbling and cracking. Had less than 2,000 miles on last restore 8 years prior, with all new stainless, glass, and re-chrome. Should have left well enough alone! The sad thing is, he took 3 1/2 years to mess this up, and I didn't even get kissed!

Almost forgot, I had to replace my 1999 date coded Tigerpaws. Might as well blame him for letting them dry rot during the 3 1/2 years he had her!

I thought I had trouble with my body guy. My guy did great work but he really takes his time. I had to light a fire under his AZZ to get going on it. Now Bob, the guy who did the body work on mine is working on Ethan's car. I know Ethan was having trouble getting Bob motivated. Not sure how the progress is going on Ethan's car, have not heard from him in a while.
