My hubby and I saved this 74 Monaco from the demolition derby in NJ. An older woman in Vineland, NJ owned it and was unable to drive. In NJ, in order to keep a vehicle on your property, it must be registered. She couldn't afford to do so, so she sold it to a junk yard. We had it for a year before we had the time to do the transformation, but we couldn't be more happy with it. Dan Aykroyd saw it on Crystal Head Vodka's Facebook page and posted the following: "This Bluesmobile replica is one of the best I've ever seen (nice work Penny)." The ULTIMATE compliment!!

Hey Mrs B ! Welcome, that's a good looking Bluesmobile from the front. It looks like Proboards only allows one attachment per post so if ya feel like posting 5 more pics just make 5 more posts lol. Or 10, it doesn't matter. The stories of saving Monaco's from a derby fate are inspiring indeed.

If you do decide to bid and win this car, I can recomend a first class shipping company. I've used them 8 times to ship vehicles from all over the U.S with zero issues. Plus their prices are very reasonable!!
