the 1984 monte carlo SS (repost)
Wow....! Looks like a storm is coming.....
The SS, (Super Sport) a high performance factory upgrade in the Chevrolet Motor Division of GM, was such a hit that this car in 1984 not only sold 24,050 copies of itself, but it also took the NASCAR drivers and fans by storm and was a seasoned success. For the public, an asking price of $10,700 for a copy of the hot rear wheel drive Chevy was a steal of a price for a car with such a menacing stance and the looks to go with it. The Monte Carlo SS was available with the sporty Strato bucket seats and floor console shifter as an extra-cost options for the first time in place of the standard split bench seat with armrest. All engines for 1984 got the three-speed automatic transmission with the exception of three SS's at the end of the 1984 production run that received the Turbo Hydramatic 200-R4 transmission with overdrive.
But no matter what your taste, if this car was once in your cross hairs, chances are it's still there... For at a time when gasoline was at 82 cents a gallon and 5.0 liter V-8's ruled the landscape, the Big SS took both North America and the racing world by storm and even after all of these years it still hasn't cooled off, (at least not in my eyes). The Monte is still a popular car and most people that own them will not let them go. (That gets back to my cousin) who owns yet another copy of the Chevrolet Monte SS. Still hot, still popping, and still rolling. and that sporty N-Body coupe just never gets tired.
