About “The Monte”

I bought this car back on March 22, 2007 with 76,000 miles on it. It was one of the best lookin cars on the lot and i was absolutley obsessed with it. I traded my old 1998 Monte Carlo LS for it, they gave me $1,500 for it. It didn't take long for the mod bug to hit me, and by the time summer hit, it was far from stock.

Over the summer it sat in a garage with a friends dad's Corvette, as i had to leave for the Army for 4 months. When i got back, i got my military bonus and 99% of that money i had decided was going into the car, and sure enough it did.

About “98 Z34”

Bought this car in 2002 with 67K miles, as of June 2008 it has 97.8K miles. Though I have always been into cars, I got more involved in Monte Carlos and modifications around Sept. '06. I have a lot to learn, but I am making progress all the time. I have done a few minor modifications to my car so far.
