1980 Monza Spyder resto! The Rise and Demise! What will the future behold?
...thanks for coming out! 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. EDITED versions from sode:14 and sneek peek from 15 (still coming soon) 0:12 The way it was found, dead in the hood.... 2:45 The Spyder has arrived! What will the future behold? 3:28 The Monza's future and fate is decided.... 5:30 Last minute shots.... 6:06 Parts run... 6:28 Charity recipient ...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 condensed lineup. 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 fuel economy. 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.

Chevrolet Monza in Spa Francorchamps
Hubraum statt Tannenbaum - Weihnachtsspecial 2011! schon fast zur Tradition ist es geworden ganz kurz vor Weihnachten ein Video mit noch nicht gezeigten Bildern der abgelaufenen Motorsportsaison zu veröffentlichen. Bisher waren es stets - wenn auch zufällig - Aufnahmen aus Fahrzeugen der Marke BMW. Mit lächerlichem Hubraum von gerademal vier Litern im Getrag M3 vor Jahren. Im Rahmen der weltweiten Krise, hoher Spritpreise und dem Ausbleiben der vor Jahrzehnten versprochenen Klimaerwärmung möchte das diesjährige Weihnachtsspecial ein Zeichen setzen. HUBRAUM STATT TANNENBAUM! Kaum ein in 2011 von mir mit Kameras ausgestattetes Fahrzeug eignet sich dafür so hervorragend wie der 1976er Chevrolet Monza des Franzosen Gilles Ceron. In den Siebzigern beschloss Chevrolet in LeMans zu starten und brachte so eine Art Ziegelstein auf Rädern an die Sarthe. Mit dem Cw-Wert eines 40Tonners und einem Design, daß der Feder eines Vierjährigen gut stünde, wurde man damals belächelt. Zumindest bis zu dem Moment als 8 Liter Hubraum das Ungetüm vorwärtsschoben. Die kurvige Ardennenachterbahn von Spa Francorchamps ist sicher nicht das ideale Terrain für den Klimakiller, doch es reichte beim Rennen der Classic Endurance Racing für Platz 6 in der Klasse hinter Raketen wie Porsche 935 und Ferrari 512BBLM. Das Video zeigt ein paar Bilder vom Streckenrand sowie drei Runden Inboard. Viel Spaß damit und ein besinnliches Weihnachtsfest. Frank Uhlig
