I miss his posts, and seeing him at Drag Week. Monte always took the time to answer my dumb questions, and gave sound advice.

I never knew him but a lot of people on here did. It is good to see the Street Outlaw boys still representing his name on the windows with his decals....

RIP buddy!

"billet or zip ties it will work the same"

That was his answer when I asked him who make the nicest solenoid brackets for the 4150 base.

Hey, zip ties are the lightest option, right?

IIRC, he had one child, a daughter, w/ his ex-wife. I don't recall what other family he had left. It was definitely a loss of vast experience & knowledge when he passed.

Anyone know if there was an estate sale for all his "toys" & projects? For example, where'd his legendary GTX end up? That thought occurred to me when I saw this post about it being a year already.

iagree Hate I never got the chance to meet him. Saw his GTX in person at Rockingham way back at the NMCA Powerfest in 2000 I think. VERY nice car. Really miss bouncing ideas off him and hearing a no BS response.

When I bought my heads up car Monte was the first person I contacted about a nitrous system. I told him I did my own engine and head work and he said that would never work. He suggested I send my shortblock to this guy and my heads to this guy and again I told him I’m a budget racer that enjoys doing his own work. After a couple more messages back and forth I decided to go a different route. In hindsight I made the right decision but I still have his messages saved. He was a very smart man that didn’t have to talk over your head to prove he was smart. I could never understand how he left his car sit for all those years and never brought it back out.
