Chevrolet Monte Carlo (1979)


Chevrolet Monte Carlo (1979)

For the lowrider scene, the Monte Carlo is one of the most chosen cars to modify. Its suspension is ideal, being double wishbone front and a live axle rear supported on coil springs, to use hydraulic rams in place of the coils and shocks, therefore giving a fully moving set-up capable of doing any number of lowrider I ricks. Yet even within the lowrider movement, fragmentation of styles has occurred and the cars which move now have their own competitions, while the show finish machines dual it out in huge halls where they can be displayed to maximum effect. Cars such as this show machine rarely get driven; inside it features an immaculate crushed-velour interior with no dash but a 6-inch (152mm) TV screen in the center console. The interior extends into the trunk and externally I here's a meticulously detailed flake paint with pinstriping and murals.
