  1. Thanks to all who are interested in these 'tooned Monte Carlo prints! If you'd like to send an inquiry about them or place an order, please feel free to e-mail me at the following address: mau4fifty4@hotmail.com My actual mailing address is still valid, as well: David Mau 852 SW 125th St Burien, WA 98146-2747 Thanks, Dave
  2. Wow... just WOW! The fantastic first-gen Monte Carlo body style coupled with the striking red & gold Coca-Cola racing livery made for one of the all-time NASCAR greats, and your wonderful recreation brought it back. Congratulations on all counts, Kevin. Dave
  3. The "A"s have it. Factory GM assembly manuals list the various models under the various body designations, and the Pontiac Grand Prix was the only "G-Body" listed for 1970. I don't think the term "A-Special" was used until one of the subsequent post-'72 generations. Conceptually, the '70-'72 Monte Carlo and '69-'72 Grand Prix were similar, but due to manufacturing costs and pricing strategies the Monte Carlo stayed closer to its Chevelle roots than the "DeLorean" Grand Prix did.

    1970 SS COPO

    Good point. When the "Godfather of the GTO" Jim Wangers had a Chevrolet dealership in the early '70s, he used the COPO program to order a fleet of black '72 Vegas which he turned into special dealership editions. Black wasn't included in the [regular] color palette for Chevrolet passenger cars in '72, but Mr. Wangers didn't want to just go for close by getting them in Midnight Bronze (even though that's a beautiful color, too). He wanted black, so he went COPO. Originally Posted By: montefrazer Anything is possible and we can play what if forever.

This is, however, something of an "X-File" I'd love to see re-opened again someday for good reason. The truth is out there. LOL Dave
  5. Lookin' good, Darren, Dick, errr... Mark! Larry, ugghhh... Dave It's all so confusing. Better make that a double. LOL Dave
  6. You mean Larry "Make That a Double... Better Make it a Triple" Tate?! They sure drank a lot on that show! LOL Very cool "phantom" ad, Mark! I knew what the copy meant with the "Mr. Jones" references right off. Great wordplay was used in many memorable ads from that era. I think Derwood would be proud! I'd remove the apostrophe at the end of the word "its" before showing it to Tate, however. Dave
  7. It really depends on how loud you want your car to be - both outside and inside. When I got my exhaust system replaced in 2006, I went with Flowmaster Delta Flow 50 Series mufflers. Their exterior sound is considered "moderate", while the interior sound is fairly quiet and resonance is non-existent. It's a great combo. It's my understanding that their mufflers with the name "Delta Flow" are the ones to get if you don't want interior resonance. We've driven the Monte to a couple of Western Meets that are about a six-hour trip each way (even when averaging 90mph for some of it), and it was nice to converse at normal volume even with the windows down and arrive without headaches. I believe the Flowmaster 40 Series are considered to have "aggressive" sound, but I think they're also available in "Delta Flow" versions, too. Check out their website at www.flowmastermufflers.com . I hope this is of help. Dave
  8. article was interrupted for a while. In the end, however, I was able to read the rest. Good stuff! (Yeah, that's better, Darren) Thank you! Dave
  9. I agree with Mark and Vaughn; that Forest Green is gorgeous. Thanks for posting this, Darren. I too was hoping for some details about the car as I was eagerly reading, but then the
  10. That's fantastic, Vaughn! Congratulations to you, Kathie, and the newlyweds! What a great-looking couple in a great-looking and beautifully-restored Firebird! Dave
  11. Cool cars; great photos! I love it when some Montes get together. Dave
  12. That's great, Larry! I'd like to see it, too. Dave
  13. Specific modifications that aren't simple to reverse will have to appeal to a potential buyer, too. Dave
  14. It is a very nice car. Underneath the engine photo the caption says, "OE engine decals are missing on our feature car." I also believe the car is missing a knight/crest grille emblem and the rectangular-shaped chrome SS exhaust tips. Dave
