Monte Carlo SS

22 posts in this topic

Here is the SS version of the MC I drew. It includes a revised front, all new rear, and a slightly refreshed version of my 1 1/2 year old interior.

Very, very nice, Vipes. I'd check off the "spoiler delete" box on the options list.

It's not bad.. the I'm not feeling the headlights that much though... they remind me of the current gto a bit just more sharper edges. The body is done really well, modern looking, yet still incorporating some past cues. The interior is classy yet sporty, just as a Monte interior should be. One thing I should mention, granted I don't have a problem with what you did but there has never been a manual transmission in a stock Monte Carlo.

man, great drawing. As far of the design I would just make the front more upfront and less aerodynamic.

Well... I like yours better than the one on the real car. Your car reminds me of an evolution of the '83-'87 Monte Carlo SS with a first-gen roof, which is a good thing, imo.

Actually, as I recall, the 3rd generation (1978-1980) did offer a manual transmission.....

I'm feeling that. It's like 1970, 1988, and today all rolled into one. Its rear quarter's a bit Mustangish, but that's not a huge deal...

You may drive me nuts with what you type, but you can draw like a demon....

I had an idea that the 95-99 did (since I've heard the gran prix offering it too) but I was only taking into count Montes from 1970-1988.

And I was not aware of the 3rd gen having one... possibly because I only like the first and fourth gens.

Yeah, 78-80 G-bodies didn't do it for me too tough either....

*raises eyebrow*

They did? Heh...if they did, then the 5th gen boys don't even know their cars ... as I know some of them complain that they didn't have the option of a manual at all....hmmm...

And, for the record, I don't hate 'em. I like that body style.

I like a lot of the design. You bring back the 4th Gen front headlights, with a slant. Very clever way to bring back those square headlights...I like the tail lights, also very 4th Gen style while keeping the 6th gen circles underneath. You also sorta keep the wheel flairs in their like all gens cept the 5th. But I would like to see this slightly more pronounced....but it's a great start. The only thing I don't care for is the "hatchbackness". A lot of cars are doing this and it's just too typical. The car should feature a longer trunk like the previous generations. The sorta hatchback look is too sports car'ish for whats supposed to be a luxury sports, dare I say family, sedan. Good start! I hate the 2006 design changes.

There was never anything "family" about the Monte Carlo. It's on the border of being called a 2-door sedan, however (could fit four adults rather comfortably, and wasn't low-slung at all most generations)

This is an outstanding drawing Mr. Viper! A little "old school" but I know that what you're going for, so darn nice job my friend. Now do one that goes beyond this!!!

Once again, thanks, guys. I really do appreciate it as it's been a long while since one of my drawings got this type of response...

Yes'n'No.

It obviously is not easy to get people in and out of the back seat.

However, when it debuted in September 1969 as a 1970 model, the Monte Carlo was billed, more or less, as a "sports car in gentleman's clothing", with the idea that it had the sporty looks similar to the Chevelle, but had a softer feel/ride that the rest of the family would enjoy.....
