Well as said in my recent thread about the car, I got it for my birthday on April 5. It's a 1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS with T-Tops. It has the original L69 305HO engine mated to a TH200-4R. The car barely runs, but that's okay as I'm not using the car for another year. The plans include an engine re-build and possibly stroking it to a 327, re-doing the interior, a re-paint, and re-building the tranny and giving it a mild shift-kit. 3.73 Limited Slip Differential might come or we may just stick with the stock 3.73 peg-leg gears. We're going to get a new carb, camshaft and intake manifold and probably some LT1 heads like the heads my dad's Camaro Z28 came with.
My parents bought it used in 1987 from a couple in Ohio. We owned it all of that time and it's the car I grew up in. It was in MUCH better condition when we owned it. My mom traded it in for a 2000 MCSS about two years after we got it repainted. During the 3 years that the previous owners had it between myself and my mom, they basically ruined the car. They obviously didn't care about it that much since there's a stain in the back seat carpet where they spilt a Coke and didn't make any effort to clean it up at all. There were also cigarettes that they didn't clean out of the rear ashtray.
Work on taking the car apart will start within the next three weeks. We're just going to take off the entire front-clip and pull the engine and transmission out and send the engine off to the machine shop then get the car towed off to the paint shop to replace the 1/4 panel and get re-painted the original black with all of the MCSS decals other then the stripes. I might add a pin-stripe that goes from the upper bodyline on the 1/4 panel that goes all the way up front. I don't know if I'll keep the wheels black (I'm hoping to) or if I'll go back to the stock grey. Interior comes last, of course. Here's some pictures of the car:
