Default Update!

Been a few months since I've posted on the forum, so figured I'd update you guys on the changes to the garage that have and are taking place!

2002 Chevy Monte Carlo SS / HS | Monroe

Most, if not all of you, are familiar with my main chick, Monroe! She's still scooting along, just recently hit the 200,000 mile marker and still ain't missing a beat! This summer, if it plans out accordingly, she will be parked and prepared for a new drivetrain! Starting off with a mild L32/L67 build with a Triple Edge Performance transmission! Hope to have that done in the next year or two (two with the transmission). Then, the savings account will open up for the turbo build!

1986 Chevy Monte Carlo SS

For those of you who haven't heard yet, we have picked up this ol' girl last year! Only 40,000ish original miles. Needs some work, but will eventually be getting an LSX implant! The 305 is in need of a rebuild, so deciding to just save the money and go big!

2003 Chevy Monte Carlo SS / HS | The Donor

Lastly, I am soon to be picking up this gem! The current owner, a good friend of mine, has decided to go the RWD route and gave me a hell of a deal! He will be pulling the motor, and the trans is shot, but one trip to the junk yard and she'll be back on the road!!! She's loaded with options that will be swapped into Monroe!

Parts included on this car include:

  • 18x9 ASA AR9's
  • 06/07 Twin Piston Brakes
  • Spyder 3 Hood
  • High Sport Package
  • Gen3 & LIM
  • Tuned PCM
  • 7" Double DIN Pioneer
  • Corsa Catback Exhaust
  • Euro Headlights
  • 06/07 Taillights
Once everything is swapped to Monroe, this car will get an L32 with a 4T65E out of the junkyard and become my new daily...ORRRR I'll sell it and make a little $$$, still undecided yet

Can't wait to see the project with your main monte. Isn't the one you bought a former member on this site?

I'm jealous over here. Nice rides. Wish I had the time and talent to do such overhauls myself. Keep us posted.

If it the pic or is the "donor" car missing the HS ground fx on the front bumper?
Also, is the owner of the "donor" car a member of MCF.com? I swear I've seen that Monte on here before.

Anycase, sounds like some nice projects coming up for you and Monroe!

Yes, the donor car is missing the front lip. Not sure if he's a member, to be honest..
