Hello, and welcome to another installation of the Weird Crap Weekend. My initial submission is this Chevrolet Monte Carlo coupe, shot last month over at the seventh pit of hell that is the Sulantie used car lot region in Tuusula, Finland.
The mahogany-coloured ’85 Monte Carlo has the 4.3-litre V6 under the hood, and is currently for sale at the asking price of 5900 euros. Can you approve of that price, especially as the deal includes 18″ wire wheels?
Of course, the rubber on said wheels is a bit worn and under-inflated from sitting. But the sides look straight enough and there’s little wrong with the paintjob, unless you’re not a fan of the hue.
The smooth and slab-like rear deck is a welcome departure from the bubble-shaped millennial Audis next to it. And again, no plate blanking as the sales ad has the plates visible.
Now, let me take the opportunity to pilfer a couple of photos from the said ad. These show us the car has a modern Sony head unit on the dashboard, as well as a not-instantly-hateable Vans Off the Wall sticker. The car has done 250 000 km according to the ad, but I don’t know if that has been translated from miles or whether the car has 250 000 miles on the clock. I do think the gauge cluster is a MPH one.
Whatever the miles accumulated, the interior doesn’t look half bad, bench front seat and all.
So, for 5900, would you swing by and pick up the donktacular Monte Carlo? Or does the 262cid engine leave too much to be desired?
