Referee certified LS1/6speed 85 SS montecarlo
OK i know my camera skills were lacking. theres a bunch more videos on my
channel of this car..most filmed by other people so u dont have to feel
cheated. in my defense i was nervous in the beginning and excited at the
end ..in addition to trying to film with a flip camera not really looking
through its tiny little screen. if anyone can feel me on that

First startup of my Monte Carlo SS Gen3 conversion
Here is the initial start of my 5.3 since swapping it into my 1987 Monte

fired right up!
