its a body shop thats been in the same spot for 25 yrs. in the first pic is one of many extinguisers,and the second pic shows the paint booth.... so the neighborhood must be user friendly.


BTW---I think he said the color is taupe (tope)

Finally got around to getting some up to date pics of the monte.It has been buffed and glazed and pinstripes added.The interior is in but not permanently,it was easier to temperately put it in the car,than keep moving it around to different spots.




And my personal favorite...........

Chris, your friend's car is looking extra sharp indeed!! I love the quality of that paint job. The pinstripes I like much better than the factory Landau ones; I had those on my first Monte, the green 73 S. Do you know the official story on those pinstripes, because I've never seen any evidence they were done at the factory or dealer? But they naturally complement the fantastic lines of the second generation Monte. The ones on my first Monte were painted on and looked professional, but I've never heard if they were done by the dealer or factory or what.

That is an AWESOME shot. Great angle and configuration.

And, that Monte Carlo is SHARP. The pinstripes accent it nicely.
