  1. Very nice! Welcome! This is a great group here.
  2. I didn’t use my snow blower the last 2 winters. Hope not this year either. My driveway has its challenges but often find it is easier to shovel. Here’s the view of the driveway from the front door during winter. You can see my truck parked at the bottom of the driveway by the street.

    Bumper guards

    The high rise guards were a GM accessory but not a factory option. Most of us have the factory guards which are smaller.
  4. I got the hotel all set up for our group. There are 20 rooms set aside at a rate of $130/night. If you need the hotel booking information please send me a message or email me at dodsyaaron@gmail.com. I got my room booked! Arriving June 16th and leaving June 20th.
  5. I'm working on hotel arrangements and should have some information in the coming weeks. I sure hope the US border opens so I can attend this meet!

    72 spare tire

    Note that the tires were different in 72. I believe 72 had a thicker stripe.
  7. That’s the first time I’ve seen the dark red 70. Looks nice.
  8. From what I have been told the green one was nice and had a build sheet. There’s a few odd things on that car but could be corrected. For the black 70 the paint was a 7 out of 10 and trim was driver quality. Nothing to verify that it was an original SS or 4-speed.
  9. I'm told that this green 70 SS with a build sheet sold for $39k https://www.mecum.com/lots/LN1021-467527/1970-chevrolet-monte-carlo/ This black 70 sold for $38k https://www.mecum.com/lots/LN1021-467534/1970-chevrolet-monte-carlo/ This red 72 small block sold for 30k https://www.mecum.com/lots/LN1021-467550/1972-chevrolet-monte-carlo/
  10. Well, three of those caps are now on my 71. I have one still in the box but keeping that as a spare. In any case, I’d recommend buying wheels first… 😜 I love that colour!
  11. I have GM NOS ones in the boxes and they had the sticker.
  12. You could choose to paint the top the colour you want rather than vinyl and install the trim. The two-tone paint was a factory option.
  13. With the way cars are driven, stored and cared for these days I don’t think rust is much of a problem with the vinyl top. The whole roof on my 70 painted before the top was glued down over 20 years ago.
  14. Went for a long cruise this afternoon with Chris and his 1969 GS400. Nice warm afternoon.
  15. I had the body shop install the vinyl and the trim after the car was painted.
  16. We have some sad news today. Terry Stevens from Oregon passed away on September 20th. Many of us knew him from attending Western Meets. He was always a happy guy with a big smile. Here’s what his wife Judy had to say: “He was so excited to be part of that club going to Canada it was huge for him to talk about cars with all the guys and learn new stuff. Had the biggest heart, just a simple man loved me, his Monte Carlo, fishing and hunting maybe not in that order though.” He will certainly be missed. Here is his obituary: https://newsregister.com/article?articleTitle=terry-lee-stevens-1960-2021--1633122515--41489--obituaries
  17. Mine has square plastic clips too originally. The reproduced ones say “Taiwan” on them while the originals do not. I still have them too. There were a few different types and likely just had different suppliers.
  18. I’ve installed a few of these package trays over the years. I make sure the tray is exactly where it needs to be in the car then I try to keep the knife as sharp as possible when cutting and simply follow the shape of the hole in the metal. The holes for the grill studs I drill from underneath with weight on the tray.
