The Spotted Thread

Post by chevy76monteman on Tue Aug 02, 2011 1:26 am

Alright guys I got this idea from G-Body Forum and thought it would be cool to try here.

Spotted this 1975 Chevrolet El Camino at the Tillamook Air Museum car show on Saturday. It took 2nd place in 1970s class (You can see my Monte in the background [upper left] of the first picture).

It does look very nice and I particularly like that Gem Top. Would have preferred the body without that chrome trim but oh well.

Nice idea to have this 'spotted' thread. In another forum I visit, that thread is one of the most popular by far. In my neck of the woods, I'll be glad to run into any US car from, say, the seventies, but I'll do my best!

Not really a spotted, but kinda neat. I was watching "Airwolf" on Hulu. Season 3, Episode 11 "Where Have All the Children Gone?," 4 minutes in there's a kid working on a 1975 Monte Carlo.

That blue 73 looks soo good! The body lines look killer. Maybe its the color, or just the angle/lighting of the picture. Even the wheels work with the look. $14k huh? I wonder what all it has done..

I love that blue one. I actually dont mind the wheels, but I think something more classic yet in the same sizes would be cool.


Blink182's video for "Down" there is a chase scene with a red 76 Monte

Quite a few Eminem videos feature a few 2nd gen Monte Carlos. The video for "Stan" and "My Name Is" along with the first album cover.

The blue monte looks to have been lowered, wheels, paint, and valve covers. To me kind of a stretch for 14k even with only 80k, but I do like it... lots

Saw this '77 Cutlass and '77 Grand Prix at the Portland Auto Swap Meet today. The Cutlass was a good driver-quality car and the GP needed lots of TLC:

Nice Cutlass! There is a guy kinda near where I live that "imports" many older trucks & cars from Oregon. Good climate for cars out there I guess as everything he has is always pretty darn solid.

The Grand Prix was a basket case. I wish I had the money to buy the Cutlass, though.
