1984 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS (Monte)

I have owned this car since 1987, I bought it with 17K miles and enjoyed putting on another 160K on the original drivetrain. For it's 20th anniversary I gave it a new heart, a new GM ZZ4 crate engine. It is gettting a bit of an interior refresh, and then will be driven for another 20 years. Once the mechanicals are squared away, maybe a new paint job.
