30 Years later...

Recommended Posts

I bought my first Monte Carlo in 1988. It was a rust bucket with a freshly rebuilt 402 backed with a turbo 400. The body was completely shot, and I had a 1979 Monte Carlo with a great body but a locked up V6. So naturally I snatched the Big Block out of the rust bucket and dropped it in the Mid sized Monte... I ruled the street racing scene for daily drivers in Mobile, Alabama for several years until i sold it in 1994. Built a couple other cars since then, but have always wanted another first gen Monte Carlo. So when I recently decided to get another toy, A MC was high on list. I found her on eBay. Great Hot Rod about 70% complete but needing to be finished. I waited until there was 30 seconds left in the auction, threw my Max bid + $1 at it and watched the last couple seconds tick off... I won the car!


Now just to finish her off the way I want!


Her name is "Selene"
