  1. Steve we had planned to come in February but in March the girlfriend had to take a COVID test as she was sick. The health care provider told her straight up oh you probably have it before doing the test. May or June my mom had to take a COVID test after being around someone for less then 5 minutes. We thought it was best not to go up even for a day which was the plan to start with. Cats are easy to take care of for a few days but dogs that’s a whole another story. Needless to say I’m still kicking even had to take a COVID test myself after a co-worker tested positive when he returned from a th
  2. Hope everyone has stayed safe last year. Nothing new for me other then working and trying to pay bills. Homeowner life and pet life has made me miss my monte. But there is the El Camino and Nomad hiding.
  3. There is one place National vehicle report. Had someone ask for a detail report when I was selling my 70. Guy didn’t want my word as I knew the car and did most of the work myself. End of the day it cost me $25 and they were able to put together a 6 page report that as far as I know could have been right or it could have been wrong.
  4. It’s a little different then the old pickup we had. The push button transmission selector is wired. I haven’t seen any of the Suburban’s in my area.
  5. As some might have saw on Facebook I got raid of my 70 Monte yesterday. It was a really sad day almost as sad as when my dad passed way. I owned my monte for 25 years and always said I would not her or get raid of her. Well times got tough she wasn’t been driven. I feel it was a good choice but it did hurt when the tow truck operator loaded her on the flatbed. But I put my family first as we were out growing our double cab Silverado. The first gen monte is my love and I’ve gotten to know most of here, I wish the club the best moving forward. We got our hands on a 2021 Tahoe.
  6. I have lowering springs and rally’s on mine. The tire height is 26” tall.

    Finally hang my 10+ year member gift up. We were going to put in in a frame but this looks better. Life keeps taking changes, sold one monte and still have one just not with me at my townhouse.
  8. I just saw this. I use a min Mac when I want to access the website from a computer I have never seen that issue before. I do use a Apple iPhone when I’m on the go or at work. Is the iOS up to date for the Mac not saying that is the issue just one place to check in to or even check to see if there is a website update for the Mac. Maybe try and install google chrome on your Mac and see if it acts different. You say you used a win10 box with the log in was where it usually is at. The only thing different is the browser that the two system uses. The webpage should stay the same as it’s a
  9. As much as I would love to join my monte family I am unable to join ☹️. Funding has been a major setback with joining the club this year and the cost of the hotel and prepping the car for a long drive I just don’t see it. It sounds like Carlisle will be a big hit with hopefully all the members that do go and I wish those that do a safe trip.
  10. I have that same tie along with a Pontiac tie. Paid about $5 each for them.
  11. It looks to me as if the bracket is in the wrong place. I’m no where close to my one of my cars to provide a picture. But the bracket on my cars bolt to the bottom side of the pan not between the pan and body of the trans. If it’s mounted in the wrong place it could be using the wrong bolts to hold it to the trans.
  12. The townhouse is 13 years old, we are buying from the original owners who has updated some of the place.
  13. This time last year my girlfriend had just moved back home. Next month we become home owners. We had just started out to see what was in the market we could afford. I had asked a couple co-workers of mine what their mortgage was. To my surprise we were paying more in rent then my co-workers. So we are going from a 1,192 sq foot apartment to a 2,500 sqft three level townhouse. The Montes are safe as they are still hanging out with the Nomad and the El Camino at moms.
  14. Keith it’s a plain color. My 70 was originally that color with a gold top and gold interior.
  15. As far as I know there is no aftermarket lenses that has the clock stem filled in. Doing the stock style gauges ain’t cheap but can be done. As for removal of the dash board there is two bolts next to the a-pillars, two under the dash by the kick panels, one above the steering column and one at the glove box. Once those are removed and the steering column is out of the way the whole dash will come out. Disconnect the battery, remove the headlight switch, and speedo cable. When you unplug the 12 pin plug you have a battery hot feed in that plug. Oh
