1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo “Triple Black”!


The restoration of a Chevy represents a work of art. It`s a fun process, but also tiring, frustrating and also expensive sometimes. But when its all done, the feeling you`ll get after seeing it, it makes all bad memories go away. Many times a car is a tribute to the ones we loved and unfortunately lost. That`s how the story goes for Boyte Ann and Michael and their `72 Monte Carlo. His dad spent a lot of time looking for Randy`s ideal car. He finally found it in North Carolina. Randy was more than grateful.

The Monte Carlo was kept in flawless shape during the next twenty years. Ann, his wife was a great support to Michel during all times. Even though Michel kept repeating that it wasn`t a car for shows, Ann kept telling him to do the opposite and show it around. Showing a car has it costs, but Ann was determined to do anything in order to honor Randy and his parents. She finally convinced him.


The 1972 Chevy Monte Carlo had to go through some cleansing, painting and restoration. The work on the body was done by Hooker Mark. Tickle Scott did the painting afterwards. Scott was on top of the paint job. He sprayed some awesome Plus Triple Black .Dale Steve buff and wet sand it.

The Monte Carlo is abounding details like the fenderwells, the rear quarters, the body panel crimps as well as the trunk pan were  blended, smoothed and done with a clear process. NOS did the trim and later on it was on his way to Indiana in order to get an amazing finish.
