My 4th Monte ... This one's a keeper!
Growing up my father had a red early 70's Monte with Hella lights and a CB radio.
During college I bought an '84 Monte as a driver and immediately began plans for upgrades, some I did, most I didn't
In 1995 I bought an '87 LS, did more upgrades than to the '84, but not everything.
Around 2009 I found my current '87 Monte LS and since it had the SS interior and suspension from the factory that I always wanted, this is the one...This one is getting everything I always wanted to do to the other Monte's...this is The One I'm Keeping Forever.
It was in near excellent condition inside and out, but because of a blown transmission I was able to buy it for a budget friendly $500.
Good thing, because I've put a LOT more than that into it over the last 10 years!!
