Hey guys,
I'm Orlando from Chicago!

Driving a 1970 Monte Carlo with a 350. But I want to learn more about these beauties. They are my favorite Chevy vehicle. This girl is far from perfect, still needs some updating here and there. Can't wait to chat with you all. Thank you.

I will post new pictures later. The ones I have are too big a file.

Great looking car. The stance with those wheels looks awesome. I see it has a 1972 front clip.

Canuck,
Good eye! Yes 72' font and rear bumper as well.

Thanks guys.

Bruce, that's a nice area. That's about 20 min drive from my house. I pass through there on my way to work sometimes.
