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 “F-Bird”

I Traded my 85 IRoc Z28 for this, it supposedly only needed a battery and a carb.... but that wasn't the case. I killed the battery after trying and trying to start, so i put a charger on it and set it to jump start and cranked and cranked and cranked and it finally fired! but wouldn't stay running if it had anything less than half throttle..... sounded good and reved ok, but not much of a driver if it is always at half throttle.... and to top it off he never titled it, but he signed the title back in the mid 90's ..... Sold it awhile back :( kinda miss it!
