Here is the recent update photos of my monte. It’s been a long journey and it’s still going but I’m actually starting to see a little light at the end of the tunnel. I posted some pics on some Facebook pages and got a little flack about my skirts but it’s my car. I like them.

Wow!  What a transformation!  Beautiful head-turning Monte!  I love the skirts - great stance, too!

Don't worry about what others say about your car.  I don't know how anyone could dis your Monte, it is beautiful.  I am one of those who prefer a car to be near bone stock but I can see and appreciate the the vision others have for a project and then bring it to reality.  You have done an amazing job on your Monte.  You saved one that many people would have just sent to the scrap yard.  Be proud of what you have there and the amount of work you have put into that Monte.

Thank you guys for the kind words. I’ve learned thru age I guess that everyone has their own taste and vision. I ve also learned to apréciate another man or women’s car, build, dream. I just amazes me how people speak without thinking. I guess to each their own. I love Monte Carlos.

Who cares what anyone else thinks, mine is a 15 footer if anyone wants to criticize it they can pay for it. You have a very nice car there and I'm not just saying that because its blue :)
