After owning a 2000 Monte Carlo for a little over 4 years I learned to love them so when the chance to pick this beauty up this past autumn came I took it. I had been searching the classifieds and online ads for an '06 or '07 SS and hardly found any since the SS model is the most sought-after and then I found this one, it was about an hour and a half away so I called talked to the dealer and took care of a lot of the deal over the phone so I didn't waste a trip. I had only test drove one of these once before and loved it and when I got there to test drive this one I fell in love again and I was sold, the looks of it, the throaty sound of the dual exhaust with the 5.3 V8. I realize this is one of those cars a lot of people only have two opinions of...they either love them or can't stand them and I'm in the love them category.By far the best thing is the attention. I always get compliments on the car from total strangers. Hell just last week I was at the store and came out to find a guy taking a picture of it on his cell phone and told me he thought it was a beautiful car he'd always liked them.The only two things I can think of that are bad about the car are #1 the fuel economy, I know thats what I get for getting a V8 and I'm used to that having owned a '79 Cadillac with a 425 big block but it hits you a little harder when it takes premium gas lol. The second thing as anyone who knows about these cars is the issue of it being front wheel drive. I was never one to think it was a big deal and I still don't think it's a terrible or bad feature but I still can't help but wonder how different the car would drive and perform if it were rear wheel drive. Regardless I don't care I love it and will keep it as long as possible. It was kind of a step up for me to get this from my old monte lol since my old one was a stripped down SS, no leather, no sunroof, no options hardly at all and to go from that to a fully loaded one it just makes it that much nicer and makes me appreciate it that much more. I'll update this page soon with more pics and whatnot I was focusing more on the page for my Caddy but if you get a chance check them both out and let me know what you think, thanks for looking!
