Nice clean looking build. I like the SS style interior and exterior. Ask anyone else who has owned a Monte Carlo SS, Chevrolet didn't do any better with the fit and finish on the rubber noses on these cars.   

 Yes you're right about that!  I was in my teens back then in the late 80s working at a body shop doing a lot of odd jobs and buffing etc. and I distinctly remember a couple of monte Carlo SS's  Rolling through the shop in the fit and finish was a bit sketchy LOL but I always thought they were good looking cars that should've had more power.

I was working at a Chevrolet Dealership and ordered an '86 Monte SS for my wife. It toke me a whole day to get the front end to line up and I was lucky since ours was one of the better ones. We drove it off and on for 17 years and 98k miles. Sold it for what I paid for it. Not a bad deal and the car ran perfectly, always serviced and garaged. Won first in class at Sonoma Ca. Super Chevy Magazine show in '88 and '90.

That is a great color on the SS Camino's! Something about them in white just grabs you!

But then I'm a sucker for any Elcamino. I've owned 2. A 59 and a 77!
