A Decade Of Destruction...
Permalink Closed


While I know my Monte is not as old as most on the site...

Today Marks my 10 year Anniversary with the Car....That's right 10 years ago today I picked up my Monte From BK Chevrolet in Brooklyn....had a total of 3 whole miles....And what a decade it's been....many ups and downs through the years...

Look how far we've come...from being Bone Stock, to the change of the rims, the razzi kit, the hood the system, the Transmission (X2), the turbo kit...each year brought the car something different...

Not only that but I got to see so many places with the car...Many parts of long Island, including the ever famous Orient Point, and upstate NY, Binghamton....As well as other states, Carlisle & Greensboro Pa, Wilmington & Cecil Delaware...And even got to go around Michigan International Speedway with it...

Most importantly the car has brought me to meet a bunch of people I am proud to call family...as well as many close friends, ex girlfriends :), aquatances, and many people who just ask about the car at car shows, or give thumbs up when I pass...or most recently ask "What's that noise??"

As stated there were some Downs as well...Most recently the Binghamton Trip...as well as the first time the Transmission died, along with some other mishaps through the years, including some speeding tickets, which we don't have to get into...but that goes with the hobby and we always get through them....

All in all it has been a great ten years, and now he has 96K (Non trailered) miles  on it and I can't wait for the next ten years and beyond!!!

A few days after I picked him up:

I also forgot to mention the car has seen my Camera Progress through the years...from a throw away kodak, to a High Power Nikon DSR lol....

As he looks now:
