Chevrolet Monte Carlo Scarlet
About my car
As I stated in my post about my Low Rider Golden Child, I lost my 1971 Monte in an accident in 1998. The car had been in my family for almost 30 years. When I was about 8 yrs old I began helping my Dad every time he worked on the car. I got just as greasy and dirty as he did but it was some great father son time and so much fun! He gave it to me when I graduated high school. The car got totalled right at the point where I was in the last stages of my restoration. I had purchased my '78 Monte to be the daily while I restored my '71 but things didn't go as planned. However God had an excellent plan B! After the accident I turned my attention to my '78 but my true heart was to own another 1st Gen Monte! So I prayed and in 2013 my prayer was answered and I got blessed with a beautiful barn find 1972 Monte Carlo I call "Scarlet". Ride with me as I set out to restore this Beauty into a Beast!
