YAK Car Pic of the Day

87-88 monte blu nf copy

When I first passed this 1987/88 Chevy Monte Carlo LS last week it had a For Sale sign in the front window. Yesterday it was still in the same driveway, but I didn’t see the sign, so maybe with the nice weather the owner decided to hang on to it for awhile. I say 87/88 because they were pretty much the same car; the ’88s actually were produced only until December of 1987, when production changed over for the upcoming Lumina coupe — which was never quite what the Monte Carlo started out to be. Perhaps that’s why Chevy brought back the MC nameplate for 1995. This blue LS coupe was spotted in the Town of Niagara.

    Never liked the Monte Carlo and its many incarnations. It just doesn’t hit any of the right notes in my book for a classic car.
