About “Aerocoupe”

It all started about 8 years ago... I was at a garage sale and there was a 1988 Monte Carlo SS for sale. And I didn't think it was a very bad price. So I ended up buying it. Well I fell in love with them. And I just kept on buying and selling to work my way up to some really nice ones. They just drive and handle so nice. And the High Output 305 isn't very bad. This has just been a great hobbie to be into. Whatever, on to my Aerocoupe. It has 32,000 orginal miles on it and is all stock. I wouldn't change anything if I could. It's decked out with everything from the factory, except ttops!

It even has the original tires on it!
