A Quick History Of Chevy Monte Carlo
The Monte Carlo is a car made by Chevy that began production back in the year 1970 all the way through the year 2007. It was originally marketed as a personal- luxury coupe while the last model year was called a full-sized coupe. It is well known for having outlived most of it’s competitors who were mostly pretenders in the race for personal-luxury coupe supremacy.
The first four generations were V-8 powered rear-wheel-drive with separate body-on-frame construction. The smaller engines became more popular in the 1980’s to meet the much tougher fuel-economy regulations during the energy crisis that lead to gas shortages and increased prices at the pump. It remained extremely popular despite all the energy regulations.
The Monte Carlo started as a alternate choice to the Pontiac Grand Prix. It eventually stopped production on June 19th, 2007. The Chevy Camaro eventually filled the roster spot of the Monte Carlo as a two door coupe. The Monte Carlo was also an extreme success in NASCAR racing. It was the most dominant car until the early 1980’s until NASCAR went towards a more smaller wheelbase.
