1976 Chevrolet Monza 2+2 Spyder

Bringing back memories of the Mustang and Corvair with its name, the Monza 2+2's "Spyder" package arrived in 1976. Included was a 4.3-liter V8, special striping and badging, and sporty styling cues. The Monza originally arrived in 1975, intended to compete with the downsized Mustang II, and was based on the Vega. I've always thought the Monzas (and their similar GM cousins) were fairly good-looking cars, and this one, despite the fact it appears to have fallen on hard times, is no exception. Although it has had a non-original (spray paint?) paint job applied, a hint of the original graphics remain on the spoiler.
