    Yes, it's under the hood.
     
  7. Nah I'm not putting bumper stickers on it. Bumper stickers ruin a car's image, IMO.

    BTW, Mike N, in that pic, why does the rear tire look all funny? Does it do that when you accelerate? Sweet ride btw

    The sidewall of the tire is folding up due to the car trying to launch.

    Man, I've wanted that exact car for such a long time...
     
  10. Yeah man me too, I didn't even know what kind of car it was. There was one just like it on my street a year ago or so, and i was like damn..if I could get a car like that...

    Then somehow or another I realized those cars are 80's monte carlo's, so about 3 months later I got the one in the pics. :D
     
  11. Yep, traction+torque=squishedtiredsides.

    Nice ride- from when Montes were Montes. My first car was a '95 FWD Monte Carlo. What a pain in the ass that car was. Your car looks good, though. It's got that kind of "Grand National Evil" thing going on with the black finish.

    My dad used to own an '87 model.
    Worst car he ever owned!!!
    But it look so great, I would buy one if I could find one in a good shape like yours.
     
  15. hey Mike N, with the slicks on that car do you have to use bead locks with the tires to keep them from spinning out on the wheel?

    If I owned that car, I sure would use bead locks.

    kinda re-kindles my G.A.S. for a GNX (Grand Nationals).... It almost reminds of the same body shape.

    Mike remember GNX's?

    I always prefered the SS to the GN.

    I guess I like the raw power of the V8 to a turbo powered engine.

    Across town from me, there is a white Olds Hurst sitting in a dudes yard covered in moss, and rotting away. I remember when he drove that thing daily. I wanted it so bad.
