Leaf-Blower Supercharging a 1978 Chevrolet Monza Spyder! - Roadkill Episode 16
On this episode of Roadkill, it's fun with Leaf Blowers. Experts on the
Internet said it would never work. That's never stopped Freiburger and
Finnegan, and this time on Roadkill the guys put the theory to the test:
can hardware-store leaf blowers supercharge an engine and make power? Step
one was buying a '78 Monza Spyder with a 305 V8 and a four-speed stick.
Step two was to take it to the shop of HOT ROD Drag Week racer Jeff Lutz to
tune it up, swap the engine to a 350, Dyno test it with five leaf
blowers, and do a whole bunch of needless burnouts. Step three was to drive
the Monza to Willmington, Ohio, for the East Coast Timing Association's
Ohio Mile event, a standing-mile race where they'd find out if leaf-blower
power adds up to more speed in the real world. The outcome? Who really
cares? Because on Roadkill, it's always about the adventure. And more
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

The Rise and Demise of a 1980 Monza Spyder!
Found dead in a ghetto parking lot, and hauled home to be saved, follow the
journey along with the of one of the many cars saved and battles fought,
most of the time a roller coaster of frustration, with an unexpected twist
but a satisfactory outcome.

...look way down for final thoughts... (spoiler)
Production of the Chevrolet Monza came to a close with the 1980 Monza line,
bringing down the curtain on the Monza's 5 year run, and did it with a
The Monza lost its Vega-based wagon variant, reverting to two-door
hatchback and notchback coupe body styles. It also lost its V-8 option.
That left just the standard 86-horsepower 2.5-liter
(151-cubic-inch) "Iron Duke" four-cylinder engine and Buick's 110-horsepower 3.8-liter
(231-cubic-inch) V-6 to haul around more than 2,800 pounds of Monza.
As often happened during the mid-1970s and into the 1980s, "paint-on
performance" substituted for horsepower, and the Monza
hatchback embraced this philosophy though the Spyder package.
Front and rear spoilers and gaudy hood and flank decals certainly made the
Spyder look fast. But even with a four-speed manual transmission backing up
the 3.8-liter V-6, a Spyder could barely break 16 seconds in the 0-60-mph
dash. In fairness, that wasn't terribly slow by 1980 standards. But today,
with 0-60 times of under nine seconds not uncommon for even economy cars,
it might be branded downright dangerous.
Nevertheless, production of the Chevrolet Monza actually increased slightly
in 1980, reaching nearly 170,000 units, up from 163,833. That was not a bad
showing for a cramped car with lackluster performance and relatively poor
It was not good enough to save the Monza, however. Chevrolet decided to
shelve the antiquated design and let the Chevrolet Camaro and new Chevrolet Citation
X-11 absorb whatever was left of the sporty-coupe market.
The car was bought by a friend with intentions of quickly restoring it for
a family member, but after realizing the poor car was flagged, it was
deemed wayyy too much work to fix, and unfortunately was sent to the scrap
heap. Every usable piece was ripped off, and for once I benefited from the
mess, free of charge. Another rare but not valuable car lost to the evils
of time, stupidity and nature. Fortunately, it and 1 other Spyder, plus
many other H-bodies, will live on in to kick major ass in the Sunbird!
Stay tuned for its completion and updates.
