I purchased this car in January 2006. The purchase originally made my Z06 into the garage queen instead of the daily driver. Since a number of the upgrades and the purchase of the 2008 Corvette, the Monte Carlo has become the play car. I am the 4th owner and it has been a South Florida car all of its life. I am currently in the process of restoring and modifying this SS.
Current projects done on this SS:
Jasper Stage II 350 Motor - Estimated by shop at 380+hp (See specs and modifications for more info)
Rebuilt 200-4R - can handle over 650hp
ZEX 100 shot NOS with dual nitrous tanks and red LED purge kit
Strange 9" rear end
Dress-up of motor (Billet Specialties Valve Covers, Breathers, chrome water pump, chrome intake, chrome fuel pump, SS braided sleeved hoses and more)
Suspension features: Eiback lowering springs, Hotchkis Sway Bars, Edelbrock rear Adj Upper Control Arms, Edelbrock rear Boxed Lower Control Arms
Wheels: SLP ZR-1 Replica 17"
Jasper Built Stage II 350 with close to 400 hp.
Professionally built 200-4R transmission that can hold up to 650 hp.
Latest additions include a 100 shot of NOS and a Strange 9" rear end.
I will start racing this SS in the local GM Challenge at Palm Beach International Raceway.

Interior has been completely restored. I gutted the entire interior, replaced from the headliner to the carpet, dash to the rear deck. I still need to take pictures of the new interior. The next part is the body work...which will start shortly.
