True Monte Carlo Rolls Royce!

Check this little Ebay beauty out. A Rolls Royce Monte Carlo conversion. A true find for a Monte nut. One of 14 ever built... and only 31,000 original miles. And, as a kicker, they used a 350 Chevy for power. It's kinda ugly, but I'm going ga-ga now

Later, Chet.

I've seen pictures of one of those RR Monte conversions a long time ago. If I remember right it was an article in some magazine, they took one over to England and drove it around to get people's reactions.

Why not just wear a sheet walking into the NAACP headquarters? That car is about almost as good an idea as doing that.

Just check Dewey's album. There's a picture of both of us with the cboy's and the '32 at the LDF car show last August. Good times man, good times. Summer's coming.

Later, Chet.

Get rid of the vinyl top, give it a nice white leather interior with rich wood grain inserts, and apply a nice two-tone sterling grey/silver paint job. Compliment it all with some large 20 or 22 inch spoke rims and you might actually have not too bad a looking vehicle. As it sits now that is one ugly duck that should be put out of our misery. But thats just my opinion.

If I did buy it, I'm not really sure about the 20+ inch rims. The rest of the ideas sound cool, but with rims that big, the tempting thought would be to tip the camber like all those ricer cars. No thanks on 20's for that car, unless they had a pattern I really liked.

Later, Chet.

Now that was funny!!!!

I think the back end looks alright but the front end would look better as a Monte Carlo. And why the hell can't they ever sweep out the carpet when they post something on E-Bay when throwing out braggin rights. I don't think anything looks tackiers than stones and stuff laying all over the carpet.

Or at least clean up the vinyl and the brake pedals. They could easily get another $500 for the cost of a bottle of protectant.
