    New guy with 1985 SS

    Hey guys, thought I would introduce myself and share some recent pics of my car. I have a 1985 Monte Carlo SS. It was my first car, which I purchased in 1998. Some of the main things I have changed is upgrading to a 350 after the original 305 spun a bearing, personally refinishing a set of 86-88 SS wheels, stainless tailpipes, TES headers, reinstallation of a 200-4R (had been replaced with a TH350 previously), 3"/2" drop, and of course the custom Trans Am shaker hood I peiced together in '04. Several other pics on my website if anyone is interested.

    No wonder there are so many GM fans! That's an awesome car man! I love the last pic... that profile is classic. I know I've never seen a cleaner, nicer 80's Monte Carlo. Congrats, and welcome to GMi! We'd love to see more pictures.

    Thanks for the (quick and) warm welcome. rmodys is on a few of the other boards I frequent as well. It was actually his mention of this board that made me pop in and see what it's all about

    Great looking ride you got there. Sure looks straight and clean. Bring it to Michigan Speedway. A few of us from Ontario will be heading there in April of 07 for a Monte Carlo show N shine, lap around the track, BBQ and all that stuff. All generations welcome.
