About “Carlo”

My dad found this one down New Stanton in need of the top of the car repainted, At the time I was looking for another g-body to take to the car show all I had then was my 99 sierra, so when he brought the ole girl home my girlfriend and I took it for a ride down threw town to see how it ran, meenwhile my brother made a deal with my dad for the monte onward when I walked in the house I asked my dad how much do you want for the monte and he said " I DONT OWN A MONTE CARLO" then my brother said "I DO" ugh!!! ..... Well things happen for a reason, if I did get the monte I would have never got the T/A so Yea it worked out. Ok now my brother has this monte carlo badly in need of a paint job My turn what a better car to two tone then this light salmon and dark cherry (got the paint code off of the gxp) did a Lot not a little but a lot of sanding and finaly paint more paint and then you guessed it more sanding then buff time boy does it shine. ENJOY(:

About “Bruiser”

I bought this car roughly 5-6 years ago out of a junkyard for $500. Originally they wanted $1000, But didn't know how to pop the hood and told me if I could pop it they would knock the price down. Last year I decided I wanted to paint it, So I bought about 20 cans of spraypaint.
