    New Pics! WARNING - Image intensive...

    Finally got around to taking some new pics of my baby - all cleaned up and shiny!

    I removed the front and rear gold bowties, the Monte Carlo from the trunk lid, and the little square GM badges behind front tires. Added SS emblem on front grill and moved the SS up from the right trunk corner up to where the gold bowtie was under the 3rd brake light...

    Nice move with the SS badges!

    Is the lawnmower in the 6th picture an SS too?

    I really like the look of this car. I wish they had updated the interior door panels like in the Impy, but the front end looks much more aggressive than the Impala and I like the black strip at the bottom of the air dam, looks HOT. How about interior pics?

    to be honest I have never been a fan of recent generation Montes,but I like the latest redesign.The car finally looks mature,GM got rid off the ugly headlights,improved the rear-end and the interior.I know it doesn't compete with hatchbacks,but If I lived in the U.S I would take a Monte over a Golf or a Civic any day.Bigger car,trunk,engine,more expensive looking from the outside and it costs nearly the same as a loaded powerful Golf or Civic.

    That color looks really nice to me. The rims are already nice enough to where I would keep them instead of buying more. You do need to get an exhaust though.

    I'm not sure if I like the position of the rear SS badge, but where it is at in the front of the car is definitely a right move!
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    My goodness ... the "SS" in the front and the back looks better than the bowtie from the factory!

    Re: New Pics! WARNING - Image intensive...

    Thanks everyone! Yup, as soon as I get some cash together, I want to do a cat-back exhaust with flowmaster super 40's, and remove the u-bend - just have to wait a little longer.

    Thanks for the home and scenery compliments too! My family and I moved into this brand new house back in April - 3,000 sq./ft. center-hall colonial with 2.5 acres - definitely a big change from the condo we were in! LOL

    Now if we could get that condo to sell, we'd be all set! It appears that the market sucks right now...

    I really like your car man. I'd take one in a second. Add some interior pics if you have a minute... as we all know home-taken pictures are always better than manufacturer shots.
