So friday is the day. The importer's terminal is 100km away and I've got to drive the Monaco back home from there. I got a new battery, 2 Jeep Comanche wheels, a jack, a tire bottle, engine oil leftover can + some gas & small set of tools. And the most important thing is my insurance which covers towing to nearest auto shop.

The black panel(with glove box etc) under the dash was found from back seat.
Tried to take a picture of my screen accurate wipers.
After changing rear tires, adding some fluid to power steering and installing the battery and new terminals everything went quite well. Except the driver side mirror is missing internal parts(it also doesn't hold still) & the alternator doesn't work.
I'll have to remove the vinyl top, at least one rust hole there. I found another hole from trunk.
Better pictures will follow when I find my camera and the moderator could move this toipic to owner's forum.

Hi SD: I moved it to the owner's forum, and changed the heading to "SD's Monaco". If you'd like the title changed and don't have access to change the thread title (by modifying the first post in the thread), just let me know and I'll change it to what you like.
Those are some good starter pics.
> ...the alternator doesn't work I guess it's a whole different game owning such a car overseas. You likely can't just walk down to the auto parts store and get a replacement. It's taking Monaco ownership to another level!
I finally have my own project! I have been dreaming of owning a 74 Monaco off and on for as long as I can remember. The Blues Brothers was the first movie I ever saw on VHS tape, I was 5 and it was 1981.
That's my story too. Except the year was 1984 and I'm not sure if did I saw Life of Brian first.
