"Monte"     1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Introduction / Overview: 1972 Monte that I picked up in college from a friend that owned a muffler shop (and yeah, it sounded AMAZING)... quick and dirty little car that was a bit rough around the edges, but was fast and reliable.As a friend described it, it was "like the Millenium Falcon.... not much to look at, but she had it where it counted".
Drivetrain: Super-secret combo that only the present owner knows!
Wheels and Tires: Ancient and mega-cool Appliance wheels. Shoulda kept 'em.
Body & Paint: Cadillac Desert Sand Firemist Metallic.... painted in a garage, and hand rubbed in my parents' driveway... same place I assembled it in a week!
Interioir: Ratty stock bench and beautiful rear seat... '70 Chevelle SS gauge cluster replaced nice factory woodgrain unit (which lived in the trunk)
