Saw a 2002 non supercharged monte carlo ss with 135k for 4500. I want to get a bigger car and looking for something a bit more fun than my base balt. I test drove it and it seemed solid and had no rust. Would it be worth the buy. Would only keep it for 5 years.

Meh, they are alright. If I remember correctly they had either the 3400 or the 3.8 in them, both of which are decent motors, just heavy. It's up to you as to what you want to do.

The 3800 was a good long running motor. My buddy had one in his Grand Prix, 280,000 miles before he sold it.

I'd talk him down a grand though.

I know you really want it but I wouldn't do it, they're slow as balls and for the same price or a tad more I know you can find a newer supercharged one. My friend owned a grandprix (Same car really) with that same engine and he got bored of it really quick, sold it, got a GTP S/C and loved it.

I'm just saying, I'd keep an eye out for a GPGTP or a S/C mote
