    200$ for the car :cool:

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ - For the repairs :mad:

    Why throw your money into a hole? Unless you have lots of money, and if so....can I have some?

    1. I doubt it's an '89. I doubt think they even made Monte Carlos that year.

    2. A replacement 305 should be fairly inexpensive. You may want to replace the gas tank and fuel lines as well. :dunno:

    I believe 88 was the last year for the RWD V8 Montes. The next production run wasn't until 1995, and it was a FWD V6

    if it's the older "G-body" model it will look basicly like this

    if it's the newer model it will look like this, and was basicly a rebaged Lumina.
