Im just waiting for the vfn fiberglass trunk lid with spoiler and also the 1 piece fiberglass front clip, once i get that i can install the motor plate mounts, radiator and tranny cooler mounts and also the mounts for the front clip. I allready have a harwood 6" cowl hood for it. The trunk lid and front clip are getting "ss" style rally stripes like on the 70' chevelle ss, the color will be a dark charcoal metalic colr on the stripes and in the front of the stripes are going to have the "real" flames in them but not to drastic as i want it to be "subtle". After all of that i can install the engine and transmission and get a driveshaft orderes and then go racing!!!

This car has been my dream for years, i have always wanted a 4th gen monte and now i have it, i searched high and low for a while trying to find a clean chassis to build my drag car with but everybody wanted too much money for the ones i looked at, i found this one in the paper for $1000, the guy drove 60 miles to show me the car and on the way he blew the stock v-6 in it so i ended up picking up the car for $150 which was a steal! The only rust the body had was under the factory sc vinyl top on its beltline which is common but an easy fix! After im done with it she should run 5.xx 1/8th mile times
