2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue GX
1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS
Head to Head
This was my grandmother's car that I acquired in 2008. She didn't really take care of it but it was garage kept, so it stayed away from any hard deterioration. I take care of it to the best of my ability, keeping it shiny and intact. I hit a deer in 2010 and paid $2,000 to have most of the front replaced by a local company that knew my family. She also had a factory defect involving the camshaft that caused her to break down twice, but that has since been resolved (to my knowledge). And as of May 2013, I have a freshly rebuilt transmission!
About “The SS”
I have been wanting this car since I was about 16 years of age. Finally after 10 years and 4 cars later, (the Monte being my 5th) I finally got ahold of this icon. My first car was a not so classy, yet very classy, 86' Thunderbird. The T-Bird cost me $400 and I dropped around $1200 getting it looking decent. Unfortunate event happened and first major life lesson learned, do not trust anyone fully, even if they have a reputation for good work. To the point and to get off of the T-Bird, an attempt at a 351 Windsor swap and was never completed.... I am looking forward to bringing this car to a better state than what it is. It isn't bad at all 73k miles and well taken care of. Time to get to work!
