First generation Monte Carlo is the classiest...but the second gen...(mid-Seventies)...now that's kitsch! Photo please!



My Mother owned a 1976 Monte Carlo like this one but it was a gold/brown color.

My former sister-in-law had an earlier model with the round headlights. Those 70s personal luxury cars were pretty cool...too bad they were so crappy. Late 60s - early 70s Thunderbirds were both cool and unusual.

Hey remember the Chrysler Cordoba? Huh? Ricardo Montalbon? Huh?

Best part is when he runs that black Charger off the road...

Bugs are cool. I thrashed my brother's back when I was kid. I launched it off a hill and busted out the back glass. I told him it was like that when I got there.

Trip...ask for and I shall recieve, eh? Thanks! There's actually a club for old Cordoba owners...

Sabretooph...adjust your dosage!

Is them factory hood scoops?

Trip, I like the early Comets, with the "cat eye" tailights, but later models are fine. I've got several photos, just can't post 'em.
