The “WTF?” Files: It’s A Monte Carlo! It’s A Boat! …wait a minute…

The “WTF?” Files: It’s A Monte Carlo! It’s A Boat! …wait a minute…

A wide swath of BangShift readership are into older American cars, so I’ll ask the question: ever catch hell from someone because they perceive your car as a boat? Whether you own a big-body Mustang, or they see your Chevelle as too long, or if you really do own a 1975 Imperial and always get tapped by the police because you don’t have the proper red and green navigation lights on the front end, the argument is usually the same: you don’t need a car or truck that size, you are wasting fuel, think of the children, and whatever else some brown-diesel-manual-wagon fanboy would spew in anger at the sight of your ride. A boat? Really?

I’m the kind of person who likes to find someone’s irritated nerve and thump it like the G-string on a bass guitar. So you have a problem with my car because you’ve convinced your kids that folding in half to sit in the back seat of your microscopic three-door hatchback is the only way to save the planet? Ok. We’ll quit talking about my car and instead talk about my boat. Yeah, it’s a little rough…I found it on Craigslist for $800 and I’m looking forward to fixing it up. What…oh, yes, the wheels. You see, this boat is perched on the chassis of a 1987 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. I don’t know if it floats in water. I know that I’ll need to get a new engine for it. But I hope to clean it up and get it running, just so I can drive past your house dressed like Judge Smails in Caddyshack.

Ok, too far? Yeah, probably. But a junkyard LS swap, some taillights, and some careful complementing for Eric Rood and I think we have the basis for a 24 Hours of LeMons legend right here. What do you think?
