I think I remember seeing this one when I was looking for my car, I remember one with carbon fiber dash trim.

was that part of the limited edition dale package?
u would think they woulda came that way in the intimadator ss and not in all black..nothing wrong with all black.. heck thats what i loved of the ones from the 80s was a black ss buttt when u put the intimadator name on it and his car was back then was black and grey that at least forme when i see a 06/07 black and grey thats first thing that comes to mind...again nothng wrong with montes from 2000 and newer being all black just saying that if gm puts his name on the car that basically cause of him sold the car u have to then keep it in true with his colors..

In 2002 it was on the Dale Earnhardt edition, But the Intimadator version was dedicated to Earnhardt as "the Man in Black" Thus the all black car.

ahhh cool thanks man ..was the 2002 then limited? and besides the color scheme whats the difference between those 2 ? both same engines? and was there a non intimadator ss or was the "intimadator" the "ss" til the 06 "ss"
now on side note since same engine bay as the 06/07 could u toss in the 5.3 into that model then? that way u could have a D.E./Inimadator true to its name.. heck since ive seen 06/07 ones black and silver.. gm coulda rebadged those as the D.E. versions.. cause didnt they have a D.E. version in the 2 door lumina/ monte carlo model in the 90's?

lol thanks ive been there in the past and just noticed some newer updates that i didint see before.. like production numbers .. seems chevy didnt know what they wanted to do with the car lol.. so many changes.. had they offered bigger engines since 2000 with least 250 hp and then able for a v8 ss started back in 2000 with new model and makeing it rear wheel drive and kept the top ss model price below the base price camaro while having the camaro engine base size at least matching the ss monte, they coulda been able to market both same time.. like the 06/07 ss topped around 30-31k , thats where they shoulda started the camaro priceing 30-40k then the vette ..just shame gm puts a nascar name on a nascar car and not put a v8 in it.. hello stock car anyone? i truely think thats what kiled the monte.. and then whamo here have a v8 but front wheel drive.. not gonna gain many buyers that way..i guess thats what makes the monte life story special lol..

silver lettering on a gloss black background and the silver braces? That stripe down the body HAS to GO tho, I don't think it looks good AT ALL. Tinted window will look GOOD tho.

That lame stripe HAS to go, and I'm thinkin that the ground effects need painting, either Silver or Red, AND IF the Silver, then a RED stripe above the Silver, as in the '02, but to make THIS one unique, maybe the RED would work with a Silver stripe..?

OPINIONS..??

mine had the silver on the bottom ground effect. it wasnt a intimidator though. it was just a regular supercharged ss. i'm sure theres some pics floating around of it. or a video or 2 of me beating the snot out of it.

 to me it looks alot cleaner. Helps the letters pop. The red just blends in too much.
