About “"Shadow"”

"Shadow" own a couple of these now, but have owned 30-35 cars in my life, just LOVE cars of ALL kinds, but partial to Chevys, the ONLY problem with the Monte is FWD, I have owed every make of car out their (almost.lol) I had my first car that I think I loved the most, a Chevy Corvair... Absolultly loved it. I have owned (me and my wife together ) about 41 cars and trucks. No I'm not rich by any means, I just love cars and bought them at great deals. This one, the Black Monte SS is a really fun car, it's got so many upgrades since I bought it, a new exhaust system with a Magnaflow high flow 3"cat stainless Magnaflow down pipe with the "u bend" removed right before the resonator. Also just recently added is the new MAGNAFLOW FLOWMASTER HUSHPOWER HP2 mufflers i won thru this site winning 3 rd place in Novembers Challanges, happy i placed and very cool of Motortopia and Magnaflow to do this for us, thanks guys.
New upgraded brakes, new bigger wheels and tires, COLD AIR INDUCTION, strut bracing, new paint, new killer Pioneer DVD, with 2 1200 watt Sony Xploid 12"subs. rear projecting camera, with HD radio , XM, SIRRUS built in, GPS, SUBS, MTX amp, SS trunk liner HID aftermarket lights as well as new headlights as well. Xenon spoiler, new front facia going on as well as side skirts and rear valance ALL will be made by myself, not bought. That way it will be one of a kind without a doubt, also, a new headliner is going in that will be black suede . I've got a custom Speedo in already with stainless steel Benzel and differant colored lights in the cluster panel, they are red and blue, with blue curtasy lights and hid roof light.. All the ID Of the car has been removed, all blacked out. Killer tinted windows around, new mirrors going on in a week, they are from a Pontaic Gamd Prix and look AWSOME on this car, more caractor than the SS ones. I will try to keep this updated as I go, but it's gone a long way already....just added the new intior lights as well. Bright white overhead light, blue courtesy lights, under hood LEDs, interior LEDs, rear tail light bar. Real cool. The LED bar flashes half when you use turn signals, example, when you turn on the right side turn signal, only the right side of the LEDs light up flashing. When you brake ALL the LEDs come on in red. When you put the transmission in reverse, the Red LEDS turn white as a swet backup light system so you can see better with the rear veiw camera. "stilli.. Thanks guys....

About “Green Monster II”

After wrecking my 70 chevelle, which was passed the point of restoring, I brought this 68 back to life in effort to redeem myself. When I found it it was completely gutless, and was sitting in a forest covered in webs, rats and spiders. It took 2 years to restore and has won 1st place in a 60's show class. Its also my daily driver, which takes me to work and school. I recently removed the old th350, originally out of the 70 malibu, and replaced it witha muncie m20, which is one of the best mods I have done to the car. Since the muncie install, it has seen some drag strip action, and 350 has been pulled out in favor of a warmed over 327 bored .040 over which I blew up drag racing, and now sports a .060 over 327 with aluminum heads and around 400+hp. I swapped the 10 bolt open rear for a 4.11 posi 12bolt. This is my baby and it will never leave my ownership Thank you for looking.
