I found this one a few years ago at a flea market. I have a soft spot for Montes to begin with so I could not pass this one up. It sits alittle too high but I still like it just the same. One of these days I would like to get the 1/18 Ertl Authentics version. It has alittle more detail and I believe it also has a better stock ground clearance appearance. Of course its not a bad representation of the car considering for what I paid for it which was not much.

I think it looks about right. Considering I am around a bunch of the real ones all the time!

I don't dig the "donk" look though. It reminds me when you put new springs in a car and they have not settled at all yet.

The proportions of the model look pretty good to me. Firehawk is right - it sits a bit high.

Nice find, Firehawk - that's a pretty car. :thumbsup: I have a soft spot for Montes, too...

I stand corrected. I haven't seen one in a while and it seemed shorter. The pic proves it is bang on.
