Jarrod Lucas’ ’88 Monte Carlo is so understated and looked so slick, even Car Craft magazine was duped into thinking it was too high-dollar to feature. Make no mistake, Lucas put on a clinic with his DIY LS1-powered Monte. He’s got just $5K in the entire car, which includes the car, donor parts from an ’02 Camaro (LS1 engine, six-speed, brakes, and interior), rolling stock from an S-10 truck, and a 12-bolt from a ’66 Chevelle. Lucas even used the Camaro’s wiring harness to connect the engine, dash, and chassis. All of the Camaro accessories still work too!
