There is a Monte Carlo Car Club based right out of Detroit called Monte Millennium Generations. Along with member pictures and descriptions of their cars, there is a ton of information about the history of the car, old advertisements and even an ongoing list of Monte's that have appeared in movies.

Am I correct in that this is the last model year for the Monte Carlo?

I will probably offend somebody with this, but the Monte Carlo (the current and previous generations) have got to be some of the ugliest freakin cars on the road. That they drive just like a 2 door Impala land yacht doesn't help either.
Different strokes for different folks. The old ones I liked though!

A rusted-out '77 Monte is the ultimate hooptie!

Jerome These are definetly love/hate cars. I agree with fury however. 75?-81? were awesome looking cars. They were bold and looked like nothing else on the road at the time. 82-88 were decent but nothing special. Most of the SS versions came with the self-destructing/underpowered 305. The 350 only had 220hp but It was a far stronger motor. There are a handful of 454 SS versions in existence but I think these were only good for 250-270hp. Anything newer just sucks. Up until 2005 The SS version was the work horse 3.8l with no supercharger! Evertime I see one of those intimidator versions I point and laugh.

I am a huge fan of the Monte Carlo. I grew up on the 4th generation models (1980 or 81-88) and over the past decade I've drawn MCs. There are Yahoo! groups that feature Monte Carlos (I'm on 2 of 'em) though I don't own a Monte, I've test driven one and fell in love. I may just get one (used, that is). BTW, here's the URLs to those yahoo groups.
I'll post some drawings I've done of the MC on this thread ASAP (as long as it'll stay open).
