Nice Price Or No DiceIs this used car a good deal? You decide!

While the full monte may mean to completely nude, today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Chevy Monte Carlo will only go as far as topless. That'll have to be enough for this car to get you to make it rain.

Yesterday's 1969 Toyota FJ40 was claimed in its ad to be currently used as a daily driver. Its price however wasn't driving a hard bargain, and un an unfortunate turn of events for the seller, 64% of you gave it the Crack Pipe. That's too bad for them, but for us, we've got another case on the docket so don't put away your judges robes and gavel.

Today's candidate is from New Jersey. Don't worry however, as the car appears at present to be in New York State, or at least it's offered on the Buffalo Craigslist. Were it actually in NJ you might be concerned that the Feds might come and seize it as part of Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino's tax fraud remuneration.

Why might it be considered something that former Jersey Shore participant might own? Well, it is a 1987 Monte Carlo SS custom convertible. Yes, this Chevy's top has been totally MacGyvered, but the canvas is new, as are the Cooper tires below - staggered no less - and the car comes primed for battle. Or, primered for battle as it were.

What the hell would you do with an '80s droptop Monte Carlo? Well, you could donk it all to hell, score some major ganja and go hang with Snoop Dogg. I hear Mr. Broadus is very approachable in such situations.

Alternatively, you could slap a big white number 3 on the door, a big Goodwrench across the hood, and drop the top, turning this into the world's most horrifically inappropriate Dale Earnhardt tribute car.

Or… well, I'm sure you could think of some equally interesting alternatives. Whatever the choice just know that the 305 (ick) automatic (ickier) drivetrain isn't going to be of much use for anything other than cruising. Fortunately these G-bodies are body on frame so the loss of the roof likely won't mean the car folds faster than Superman on laundry day.

That's good because you'll want to get some enjoyment out of driving the car, especially seeing as we're in full-Fall mode which is prime convertible weather. The seller says the car needs some finishing, but the body and interior at least look to be in serviceable shape. The top, either up or down kind of looks like ass, but at least the doors seem to fit alright.

The cost of this trip to Monte Carlo is $6,500, and it's now time for you to weigh in on whether or not its worth the cash. What do you think, should this New Jersey custom Monte Carlo bring $6,500 to its seller? Or, is this a Monte whose seller is full of it?

You decide!

Jimmy woke to the garage door going up. "Are we going for a drive?" he asked.
"Just a short one, we need to take some pictures."
"OK...are we gonna put the top down? You know I love the wind in my velour..."
"Jimmy?"
"Yeah?"
"It's September in Buffalo. It could snow tomorrow. If I don't do something, your top is going to stay up til May."
"What are you saying?"
"It's Craigslist time. You need to go to Florida."
Jimmy shrugged his staggered Coopers. He knew the drill. He'd been through this before the operation, he knew it would happen again and again. He wasn't for everyone.
Florida sounded nice.
