    Check the monte for rust and rot. The common areas are the trunk, lower inner door bottoms, and rear wheelwells and quarter panels. Also see if the t-tops leak, the car is over 20 years old. I miss my monte carlo and if the right one came along I would do it. What kind of emission testing do you have?

    ^ I agree. I'm trying to sell my car right now. I've had so many problems with it, it literally scares the shit out of me. I wish I would have gotten rid of it long ago. If someone is offering to take it off your hands and deal with its problems, I would let them. Repairs can get costly for these cars, trust me, I know.

    CHECK the body mounts!!!! research online where they all are, I believe theres either 7 or 11 of them... its ben awhile, but my old monte looked mint and you would be hard pressed to find a spec of rust on it but it had 4 totally blown body mounts cause of their recessed design everything rotted out around them, it took for ever to find a shop that wanted to touch it and they quoted me over $3000 to fix it right and lift the body off the frame etc I love 4th gen gbody's but their body mount design has to be one of the worsts ever.

    be suspicious... get a mechanic or someone that is really good with a wrench to look it over... maybe even ask him to meet you at the track and have him run it, see if it really runs 10s
