Cool. I had a 1984 white SS...it got STOLEN. Monte SSs are nice lookin cars.

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."

I never had an SS but had 2,an 83 and an 85 Monte. Both with 305s, rebuilt the 83 and kept it stock and that was the best and quickest running 305 I had ever driven till my friend got an "X" cop camaro with a 305 TPI.

Sold the 68
Ready for the 2010

G-bodies are great...I had a '79 Malibu (see my car domain in my sig). Full frame, coil spring rear...great for drag racing.

Check out MalibuRacing.com for lots of good g-body info and good people.

Nice. Gbodies are quickly becomming good performance buys with all the antique iron prices going up. Good luck.
