About

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.
