Does anybody have a picture of a 79 or so Monte with a plastic nose. I was given a monte and I currently have an Olds cutlus and thinking of re skinning with the monte but want to know what it could look like. So if anyone has some pics lets have a look.

The monte will have a little different fender tops front and rear than the cutlass and a bend in the sheetmetal about 2/3 down the side. I fit a monte plastic nose and rear to my cutlass and found those differences. Once you put the plastic nose and tail on it you can't tell from 20 feet. The opera windows may be different too. The #3 car is a monte the #73 is a cutlass.

What year is that monte eborcim? It is pretty hard to tell the two apart.

The olds was an 82 the monte was probably an 81.

So whats the diff between the 79 and like a 81 monte like the one in the picture. I cant see if it has the same line as the 79. I know the 79 has the long radius body line above the wheels but does the 81 body. I remember some of those monte ss cars looked pretty awsome but I just cant remeber what year. It definitly isnt the year I was given. Anyone have a 79 pic? 2 years ago I wouldnt of cared but I really like my Olds and I am afraid of changing to the monte without seeing it first.
