Head to Head
"Shadow" own a couple of these now, but have owned 30-35 cars in my life, just LOVE cars of ALL kinds, but partial to Chevys, the ONLY problem with the Monte is FWD, I have owed every make of car out their (almost.lol) I had my first car that I think I loved the most, a Chevy Corvair... Absolultly loved it. I have owned (me and my wife together ) about 41 cars and trucks. No I'm not rich by any means, I just love cars and bought them at great deals. This one, the Black Monte SS is a really fun car, it's got so many upgrades since I bought it, a new exhaust system with a Magnaflow high flow 3"cat stainless Magnaflow down pipe with the "u bend" removed right before the resonator. Also just recently added is the new MAGNAFLOW FLOWMASTER HUSHPOWER HP2 mufflers i won thru this site winning 3 rd place in Novembers Challanges, happy i placed and very cool of Motortopia and Magnaflow to do this for us, thanks guys.
New upgraded brakes, new bigger wheels and tires, COLD AIR INDUCTION, strut bracing, new paint, new killer Pioneer DVD, with 2 1200 watt Sony Xploid 12"subs. rear projecting camera, with HD radio , XM, SIRRUS built in, GPS, SUBS, MTX amp, SS trunk liner HID aftermarket lights as well as new headlights as well. Xenon spoiler, new front facia going on as well as side skirts and rear valance ALL will be made by myself, not bought. That way it will be one of a kind without a doubt, also, a new headliner is going in that will be black suede . I've got a custom Speedo in already with stainless steel Benzel and differant colored lights in the cluster panel, they are red and blue, with blue curtasy lights and hid roof light.. All the ID Of the car has been removed, all blacked out. Killer tinted windows around, new mirrors going on in a week, they are from a Pontaic Gamd Prix and look AWSOME on this car, more caractor than the SS ones. I will try to keep this updated as I go, but it's gone a long way already....just added the new intior lights as well. Bright white overhead light, blue courtesy lights, under hood LEDs, interior LEDs, rear tail light bar. Real cool. The LED bar flashes half when you use turn signals, example, when you turn on the right side turn signal, only the right side of the LEDs light up flashing. When you brake ALL the LEDs come on in red. When you put the transmission in reverse, the Red LEDS turn white as a swet backup light system so you can see better with the rear veiw camera. "stilli.. Thanks guys....
About “Battle Wagon”
We bought this van in September '08 after we got married. We drove it down to Valley Fair that October. Then in November we drove it to Ohio to pack some of my stuff up and drag my S-10 back home. That was a great idea, but we had it way overloaded. Coming through Chicago, it started snowing bad. Somewhere in Wisconsin, just when the roads were getting horrible and cars and trucks (some of them 4x4s) were spinning and sliding off the road in front of us, overdrive blew out and from there on it got worse! We made it to Minnesota, but passing through Duluth, we didn't know if we'd make it. We got back with a burned up Transmission. The van sat at my work waiting on us to rebuild the trans. We finally got it rebuilt, with the kit we got for my S-10. But was a fail. So the van sat from January '09 until this past March when I broke down and got a used trans for it. We scored big on it. It came from a van with 105,000 miles. Doesn't sound great, but when I went to pick it up, found out it was a GM Reman unit! I installed it and it worked perfectly! Our van had about 111,000 miles on it then. We drove it to Wisconsin Dells in July 2012. Not a problem at all! Rear A/C worked great! Trans was great! We had a blast! And I've been driving it everyday, everywhere, for everything since then! It now has 131,000 miles on it. We've taken it all over Minnesota on camping trips and driving it whenever there isn't snow and ice on the roadways. We learned not to drive it on icy roads in December 2012 when we tried to go to Duluth to meet up with Michelle's mom for Christmas dinner at Red Lobster. We didn't even make it 20 miles until we spun out and ended up in the ditch. It got parked and the 4x4 truck got fixed and I drove that. Well we got rid of the 4x4 this past May so that just left me with the Trans Am and the van to drive. The T/A won't be driven this winter and the van sucks. So I'm thinking of getting an old 4x4 and grafting the frame and drivetrain into the van. That would make it an awesome all weather vehicle.
