    I think it could be good with the right wheels/tires and stance. I hate the look of bigs and littles. I think the small front tires accentuate the overhang in the front and just make it look a little goofy. The manual transmission is great, but I'd rather have a TKX or T56. Not sure why he didn't install a PCV valve. There has been a fair amount of work that has been done to this car that might not be blatantly obvious. Hard to say if it is worth what he is asking. Some minor tweaks and it could look good. What is there looks pretty good and A/G Body wagons aren't getting any more plentiful.

    My first thought is excessive blowby but I am a cynic.

    I have never been a fan of the Monte Carlo SS front end on anything but a Monte Carlo SS, but that's just me.

    Agree the Monte Carlo SS front end just doesn't blend in, need same sized tires front and back. I like the interior.
