A choice of a '70 chevelle or a '76 monte carlo. I would get both and build the 70 chevelle and keep the 76 for a skin later. The 70 should have better front end geometry. But parts should be easier to find for the Monte Carlo

I would go with the Monte Carlo. At the present I race a 76, and I find them all the time parked. You dont find too many 70 chevelles around anymore.I also think the M/C would be a little lighter.

I would go with the Monte without hesitation, at my track, most everyone runs a Camaro or Monte.

I know a little about running chevelles and I would recomend using a metric car they much lighter and mine handles great.

The guy I am buying them from will give me the chev. ready to run. and the monte as a back up car. I was thinking of running the chev. frist because of the wheel base for my track. Tell me what you guy's think. Thanks p.s. any set up tips would be great.
