About “Pure68”

My boss retired and was moving to Montana He didnt want to take the car because they salt the roads there and salt would be the end of this car. He wanted to sell it to someone that would take care of it. This Chevelle Malibu Sport Coupe has 68,000 miles on it. When I got the car it had a new water pump and shocks, My boss saved the original parts so I had them rebuilt and put them back on the car. Every thing works on this car, even the clock. Drives so nice and interior is better then the out side. I debated to keep it original for months. Before I got the car I planned to put a crate motor in it, disc brakes and 17" Cragers. But it is to sweet of a ride. I have done a few Car Shows and am amazed at the attention the Car gets. Its fun to drive and fun to own a piece of Chevelle history.

About “Blue Monte”

This is my 1972 Chevy Monte Carlo that I purchased 1996. It was mostly stock except a rebuilt 350.
Drove the car my Senior year of high school witch it saw some engine swaps and some performance upgrades.
Totalled the car in 1998 when it left the road at about 120mph with the accelerator stuck. Replaced the frame and put it back together in 1999.
Drag raced it and cruised it half in primer and with decent running SB 350 for a couple years.
In 2002 it received major drive train upgrade getting 454 BB, 400 Trans and a 3:73 spooled rear end.
Then finally in 2005 it got some much needed body work and paint after being drove hard for the past nine years.
It has been kind of a never ending project. Always changing something on it making faster or cooler.
Overall its been a fun car to drive and play around with.
