thanks... I like how your rims show off the brakes, car looks very clean, love dark windows but I got tired of getting pulled over for it so with my most recent Monte I did not put any tint on (although I would like to) Always nice to have a garage! Is that a custom paint job?

Here's a link about the build https://montecarloforum.com/forum/ge...l-drive-59109/ it's taken a lot of time, money and paicence plus some help from the members on this site . I've seen it posted on how people want a manual transmission which would be a awesome upgrade but unless your using a Pontiac engine I don't recall Buick ever putting a manual behind a 3800 which means you would need a custom flywheel. Maybe your the guy to get it done.

Your expecting me to say a 3 car. The 3 cars you see in these photo's belonged to some serious fans. I could not do that! The impact of me getting out of those cars or driving them, & standing by them creates quite the freak show. On some occasions it has brought on tears. I don't like to see folks cry, so I try to cheer them up some, just as D.E. could have done. That appearance is all natural with or without the mustache, or the shades too. I didn't look like D.E. he looked like me as I was 150 days older than he. ha,ha!
Actually for the last 10 years I drove new rentals mostly from Avis. My favorite is the Chevy Cruze.
Then I retired last September. So now we have and Equinox, a Torrent, and my Monte Carlo that I have been keeping, it was my daily driver years ago, now I try to fix a few things and do some upgrades. Fun stuff.
