Welcome back bud, we've missed ya.  The Monte looks fantastic, great shade of blue!

I don't know what was said to keep you away for so long but don't let anybody give you any grief!

I dig the tat's- especially the script.

Looks Excellent! As if just rolled of the assembly line. I like the stance & your attention to detail / factory look under the hood. Nicely done.

Chris,you need the skull and crossbones anti freeze decal on the passenger side of the rad cover. Get it through a Corvette place because its the correct one.

with the matching 454/400 gone,i desided to do the car different. out of 23 montes,only 2 were blue.

Surely, my brother in law owns a perfect 68 Corvette and always has/had catalogs around so I find stuff in there.

the monte just spent 2 weeks in the exhaust shop. first problem was-
he did not like my BBC shorty headers!!!!!!!!! OWell

than he did not like the fact that i did not want the tails straight out the back!!!!!! tuff $h!+.

than my 10+ year old muffs were to rusty for him.........OMG

but i got what i wanted,2 1/2 mandrel with flowmaster 50 series and it fits like a glove.





BTW-converter cover is on now......lol



im having a hard time getting stuff off my phone. i will get sound video on here soon Embarassed
