Cool good ol Monte

Hello everybody i am glad that i joined this forum as well as exited. My name is Julio i am 44 years old i am a proud owner of a 1970 Monte Carlo. i am the 2nd owner of my Monte i got her from a very good friend of mine that was a veteran of Vietnam and i would always go to his house when i was a kid and pray that i could someday get that car or someday get a beautiful machine just like her. Well years went by i would say about 25 years and i got a call and all i herd was Julio do you still want her ??????? I said who is this Skip? You bet, Skip is the person that owned the Monte and before he could say anything else i said of course i could not believe i was finally getting the Monte Carlo. His health was very bad and his days were numbered plus he had to make a payment to his mortgage. Well to make a long story short i got her for an unbelievable price and i now own her. Not even a month later my good old friend passed God bless his soul. I want to do everything i can to restore this beauty . As well as put in some real love and work to let it be known where the Monte came from and who has it now. I would like to put a little airbrushing in memory of Skip a vietnam vet he was a helicopter pilot. Well I Love music i am a proud father of 5 kids and a granddaughter. I love the Seahawks i like to fish and i love muscle cars and hot rods.

Welcome to MCF! Great back story to your car! I'm sorry for the loss of your friend, however. Sounds like he left the car in capable hands, though. Show it to us when you can!
