The Chevrolet Monte Carlo name was revived for the 1994 model year, with the car going on General Motors' versatile front-wheel-drive W platform. When the sixth-generation Monte Carlo debuted for the 2000, the Chevrolet Division produced a special NASCAR-themed Pace Car Edition of the Monte Carlo SS. Red with checkered-flag graphics and a lurid red-and-black-leather interior, this was one racy-looking Monte. This example, though, has fallen on hard times and washed up in a Denver self-service wrecking yard.

Just 2,222 of these cars were made for 2000.

This one appears to have received some additional graphics, courtesy of one of its pre-junkyard owners.

Someone with a regular 2000-2005 Monte Carlo may decide to buy these cool-looking leather seats, for a low-cost interior upgrade.

The Tasmanian Devil decal was factory-installed, of course.

The side you show the world is up to you.
