Default Re: Project ideas.

depending on the year of the monte carlo it would make a great project car.

also don't forget about buicks! i've been toying around with my '65 skylark project for about 5 years now, originally it was "free if you take it away NOW!" drove the sucker home. basically the skylark / GS / special is a chevelle / malibu / GTO /442 with a differant engine ( in buick's case, the "nailhead" V8). a set of engine mounts and you can fit any small or big block chevy engine you can find under the hood.

yeah thats a nice looking project there! and the monte carlo will most likely be my project...its a 77 305 auto with 122k orignal miles...needs very little carb work and of course the ouutside is a little rough but its red with the black leather interior. my grandfather has drove it less than 200 miles in the last 3 years when he put new tires on it, fixed an exhaust leak and put on a new muffler. i think its a good start because i know i can get it cheap i know its background and i really ACTUALLY know what im gettin not someones problems.

the monte does sound neat.... last year for the "big" 2nd gen cars, and i don't think i've ever seen one in red with a black interior, that's gotta be rare as hell. does it have a bench seat or buckets / console?
