1979 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Landau (training day)

Photo of a 1979 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Landau (training day)


i had an '86 pontiac grand prix i bought in 2002 with 42000 miles. I was the second owner. It was a custom factory order. It was white with burgundy pin stripes, vinyl top, and interior. It also had t tops. My friends and I always liked "old school" GM's. My friend fell in love with the '79 monte carlo after watching the movie Training Day. He found one on eBay in Nebraska. He bought it, and drove it back to NC. He doesnt know too much about the mechanical aspect of cars and started messing with the distributor and timing, and messed up the motor. He had it and the tranny replaced. Gas got real expensive in 2007 or 2008 and it sat for like 6 months. I bought it and the rest is history.
