Almost lost my baby tonite!

By monteman1978

Filed under: 1978 Chevrolet Monte Carlo (# The Hell Beast)

I was on the way home from Reading. When a person in front of me was making a right turn going down a hill, I hit the brakes and lost control of the Hell Beast. I started to slide to the left and some how I over corrected and it started to slid to the right. So I let go of the wheel for a second and jumped on the gas. As the rear started to slide to the left I was able to get her back under control. The worst part was that my son was in the back seat at the time. After this all happened I was told by my wife that I just missed hitting the poll by inches. So needless to say I was shaken up for about 10 miles or so. I thought about what had happened and the only thing I can come up with is that the brake are the reason I almost wrecked the Monte tonite. Man my Mom must have been in the passenger seat with me because if I did not do what I did I might not be here now. Talk about crappin a pickle.

Tilt colume.

I went to Ford u-pull it yard yesterday and discovered that they have 2 3rd gen montes in the yard. I one of the montes had the rare tilt colume with a cruise control switch. I figured that I would pull it from the car and figure out if it was worth the time and money I invested in it. I took a good look at it today and found out that the colume is in great shape just needs a rag joint. There is no movement in the colume when it is locked in place. So tomarrow I will clean up the colume and paint it. When everything is dry I will pull out the old POS colume and replace it with the tilt colume. The next things I am going to pull off the car is the doors. But that is another post. Best of luck to all of you guys who are the hunt for a prefect tilt colume thay are still out there. Just keep looking.
