1979 Chevrolet Monza

Spotted this beautiful Chevy Monza street parked in Silverlake.  This is one of the ought forgotten Malaise Era models by Chevy that has decent aesthetics, but lack luster performance. The lack of performance makes sense; it was Chevy’s economy subcompact – with most models rocking a 4-cylinder engine and tuned to maximize MPG.  However, in 1979 you could get a 305 V8 producing a whopping 130HP!

Still, we love to seeing 40+ year old cars driving on the street – it is pure automotive bliss – it is what cars were meant to do.
