The last "saleable" Chevrolet Monte Carlo - a precision red model with silver rally stripes and ebony nuance leather signed at this year's Brickyard 400 race by all Team Chevy NASCAR Nextel Cup members, including race winner Tony Stewart - was purchased at a special GM Sponsored Auctions sale yesterday at Manheim's Statesville (N.C.) Auto Auction.

The purchasing dealer was John Simon of Simon Chevrolet-Buick, Woonsocket, R.I., whose winning bid was $72,800.

The Monte Carlo nameplate has the most wins in NASCAR history.
The last Monte Carlo, an identical model, will be retained by the GM Heritage Collection.



....also... pictured in the center (wearing the white Chevrolet polo) is John Fitzpatrick, Camaro Marketing Manager. :)

Impala is a 4wd sedan..and the Monte is a coupe. That wouldn't have worked too well.

**** shame the best looking cars always get prematurely axed (Roadmaster, Eldorado, Monte Carlo, etc.).
:eek: I didn't know the Impala was 4wd. I thought it was fwd.:lol:

The Monte Carlo should have been put to pasture with the last model...

That one was bland. This one was just FUGLY. I think if they added Landau roofs, shag carpet and swivel buckets, then maybe it would have sold better to people stuck in the '70s.

Just my honest opinion, of course.

Good to see the the car again. I worked on this one and the Heritage Collection Monte in the Oshawa plant. Did the final metalfinish inspection on them.
