What did you do to your Monte Carlo today?


Recommended Posts

I had a customer a few years ago that brought his new Silverado back to the dealership complaining about a rattle. Turned out to be his flashlight in the console. He was a little embarrassed. I was just glad it was an easy fix!

Got a little monte time in today, put almost 50 miles on. Went to see my daughter and grand kids and my girl and her grand kids. Was a nice day.

Well I finally got the radiator show panel I won at the eastern meet put on the car. I've had it for over a month now but have been away on vacation.  Here it is

I got it all back together. Just need to fill up with coolant and fire it up. Then I’ll find out where all my oil leaks are. LOL

Lol ok, get this, when working at a dealer in my younger (18) years we had a police car come in with a rattle/noise when taking off and stopping. After many people looking at it, I found a half filled bottle of pepsi, glass bottle, again showing my age, sealed inside the right rocker, yes inside. Got rid of the bottle and the noise. Lol. Ask about the moldy tuna fish sandwich left inside the rear door in another police car. P U! Lolol

Went to a cruise in the other night met with Bob (Bob71) while we were standing there talking and looking at my radiator cover he noticed my choke pull off was in 2 pieces.  I looked at it today and it just snapped back together.  I love easy fixes 😊 I finally got it inspected too it was due in july. Better late then never. Unfortunately the last 3 shows in our area have been canceled so I guess  I'll just be crushing around.

My brother, myself, son and 4 other friends took our cars out for the first time this year and all cruised down the the beach together for a gathering of around 100 cars that takes place every Sunday. 

We had the only Monte Carlos there and both SS454s.

As it's finally not blast furnace hot on a free day for me, I finally worked on my wiring harness.

Consolidated wires, removed a few not needed and shortened a few.

I'm setting up a system that kicks both fans on at full speed when the AC compressor comes on.

The new engine needs a new converter. Add another thousand bucks to the list. 😟

Got her back to the house after engine swap and FiTec install. She was idling in the garage while I put The trailer up. When I got back to her I saw a big puddle of antifreeze on the floor. Heater core is leaking! Arg. And I thought my boat was a black hole for money. LOL

A little cool today but not to bad a day for a car show at Lebanon valley race track. Pretty good turnout they announced 300 cars. Mine was the only first gen but did talk at another member from Connecticut and another guy that has a 70 that I gave a club card.
