A big V-8. Well-executed coke-bottle styling. Some NASCAR history. Those are just a few of the things that make the first-generation (1970–72) Chevrolet Monte Carlo cool, more than 40 years on. Monte Carlo is also a rather chic name, although this Chevy hardtop is probably more at home in Mobile than in Monaco. Nevertheless, Monte Carlos remain bargains that offer more muscle and style per dollar than many of their peers. For now, at least.
