Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

Can I get some engine and transmission advice? These are dumb questions but I don't want to screw up this engine purchase LOL. I am not an engine guy and I'm going out on a limb here ! I decided to go with the PCM 6.0 L. My rudder is placed about an inch to the port side. I have a star board Helm. D...

Re: Rocky Mountain Monte Carlo

Flip now complete. (more like a roll lol) No casualties.
Stared at it for an hour today not knowing where to start. Goal for last 3 years has been to get it to this point so haven't given much thought to the game plan going forward. Looks bigger right side up!
