I've owned a 73, a 76, a 78, and an 86 (SS), which I still have. I've liked them all. My 86 SS has 234,000 miles, and still runs fine. Just did a 350 mile road trip last week in it.

re: What is your favorite Monte Carlo?

My first car was a 77 Monte carlo. Last of the big ones. I have also since then owned a 72, 75, 76, And a 85 SS with T Tops. If I were to get another one I would like to get a 73 to 77 with T Tops, center cosole, with the swivell buckets. And I have to agree with another post on here. A FWD Monte Carlo is not a real Monte.

First Generation is totally my favourite car .. I have a 72 and a 86 SS and my 72 is a far superior look and class of car I have more compliments on my 72 than my 86SS
Im just partial to em I guess

I attached a pic of the front for you. That car belongs to a buddy of mine from Montecarlocity.net It's a blast on the street too. Those are 17" rims, and I agree, they are awesome on that car.


In a while, Chet.

Mid to later 80's the G Body's way nice and I look for a wave of them to pop up geetting really popular with the price of muscle cars through the ceiling. Look for these G Body's to become really hot great body fairly light weight will swallow a big block with ease plus you can buy and adapt anything to them now i built my cutlass a few years ago 461 BB olds and wow fun car, Keep your eye out these will be the cars to look for..

Ive had a few Monte's and my fav's still 70-72 my 74 was a great looking car but just diddnt have it and my 79 and 86 SS both where ok but I like the older muscle. By the way as for stock Monte's nothing like a big block 402,or 454.

I love this body style.
This triple black 18" wheels, dual exhaust and a small block would be sweet.

I found one with a snake skin interior. i almost threw up
