The 1987 Monte Carlo ls is a classic car. It includes power windows and power locks. It is equipped with a v8 engine. It is a two-door car with many different options. It is a very durable car. It still runs to this day over thirty years later. Overall, it's a pretty smooth ride, and it has some pick up to it. Never had any major issues with the car itself. I would highly recommend this car to any classic car enthusiast. I absolutely love the Monte Carlo.

The car itself is so easy to perform work on. It is a highly sought after vehicle today.
