The Rise and Demise of a 1980 Monza Spyder!

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.

sofreu um super aquecimento devido a dois motivos o primeiro relacionado a
entupimento nas galerias de arrefecimento do motor, e o segundo,
relacionado a problemas no cebolão do radiador, ocasionando o não

Chevy Monza (Baby Tuning)
Proceso de mi chevy. Tarde un par de años en modificarlo, a mi gusto
quedó muy bien (pero me quede con ganas de instalarle un quemacocos).
Aunque ya no lo tengo es un buen recuerdo que tengo :D
Espero les guste y lo puedan compartir.
Resurrecting the 75 Monza
This is my 75 Chevrolet Monza 2+2 262 4Speed Hatchback. It has been sitting
for about 8 years now. This is my second attempt at starting it since. The
first time I found that I was not getting any fuel to the carb. The fuel
pump in the tank I believe is gummed up from sitting which is why I am
constantly spraying the carb to keep it running. I was telling my son to
watch the oil pressure gauge and found that I had no pressure. At the end
of the video you can hear a squirting at the end. Turns out mice had chewed
the plastic line going to the gauge. I cant believe the car started and
ran. The car is in rough shape but is still a cool car. Don't know if I
will keep it or sell it. The wife wants it gone. Says I have to many cars.
The ones you see in the video are all mine.
