I had a '86 2 door when I met my wife. I loved that car except for it seemed like there was always something wrong with it. When water leaked on the power seat switches (in heavy rain) the door shorted out and started smoking on the side of route 2. I bought a new car the next day. Sad
heres some pics from about 1998

I used to run the slot mags that are currently on my '74 on the caprice. BTW I like the rallys with the black walls best.

I like the original hubcaps & the aluminum Vette wheels. The Vette wheels might look "meaner" w/ a blackwall tire.

G-mas chevy still looks good. Wish i still had their green one. Looks good with the rallies and raised whites, but i guess im kinda bias. The vette aluminums need to stay on the monte.

I need to get over there one day.
