The Steps I took to actually turn my 99 Monte Carlo LS into" Mean Green"

By Monte_Man

Filed under: 1999 Chevrolet Monte Carlo (Mean Green)

I bought this at a buy-here-pay-here-lot in illinois,
This car was nice but it had some heavy scratches on the hood of the car... This car was in great shape, tinted widows on the rear,2 rear windows then there was a strip across the top of the windshield....
this car had the alloy 5 star rims, not the shiny ones.. more silver...
The Monte Carlo tags on the doors were removed....
the dash had 88000 on it... 3.1 baby... zooom zooom

I waited a year and decided to start customizing my Mean Green....
My first thing was gotta get some Rims on it...
I found 4 20"Kasino Pit Boss online for 800.00
Then I rolled on over to ANDY WURM in Ferguson MO to get 4 brand new tires put on On a Late SATURDAY TOO

After driving a few miles i noticed that my tires are rubbing the wheel well ridge, so i drove over to ZEMAN tire Co. in South St.Louis Mo 314-prayjoe is the number no joke

They took my rear springs and put in some spacers so the rear end will sit higher to prevent wheel rub .... makes the car look dope i had the exterior good but audio system needed an upgrade so I found a great deal at a local pawn shop
I bought 3 12"championship series Pioneer subs in a custom box, and it came with 2 1000 pioneer amps and a distribution block... now i needed a head unit and install for everything so i thought BE ST BUY....
I bought a pioneer cd player w/installation and then had them install the subs and amps for me
I walked out of the store in BALLWIN MO paying 800.00 for a 100,00 head unit, installation wiring kits for radio and amps...

I had my front 2 windows tinted by my people over a touch of gold auto detailing/assessories on THE HILL , John also hooked me up with block letters for my doors and windshield

What is strange is Dec 28th I was involved in a three car crash in this monte... someone hit me and pushed me into another person,so this monte had 2600 worth of body work/paint done freshly, then i started to look at this monte differently...
Other than that thats how mean green got to where it is today

oh yeah
"mechanically i had 800 in transmission repair,new altenator,new battery,
