Car of the Month

June/July 2001
2000 Chevy Monte Carlo
Owner: Neil Emery, Beaufort SC

Webmaster's note: This car was scheduled to be May's Car of the Month, but computer troubles, vacation, and my day job prevented me from getting it up in a timely fashion.  I apologize for the delay.

Neil Emery is the proud owner of this beautiful 2000 Chevy Monte Carlo pace car replica.  The car is a commemorative edition for both the 1999 Indy 500 and Brickyard 400 since the Monte Carlo served as pace car for both races. The car was purchased new in May 2000 and is one of only 2222 replicas available.  The car has every option and Neil has also added an SLP cold air induction kit to the 200hp 3.8L V-6.  Neil has put more than 24,000 miles on the car in the first year and has participated in car shows in South Carolina, Georgia, and even as far away as Michigan.

Neil is an active member of the Monte Carlo community, assisting to promote the Monte Carlo pace car registry and regularly helping others to find information on their cars.  In addition to his own website, Neil has also set up a web community for Monte Carlo pace car owners

For being selected as "Car of the Month", Neil has won his choice of a Johnny Lightning pace car replica from the gift shop, an 8x10 information sheet on the 1995 Corvette pace car, or a poster from the IndY2K Chevrolet Pace Car Reunion.  If you would like to submit your pace car replica for "Car of the Month", simply send a photo and description of your car to   If you do not have a scanner, e-mail me and I will provide you with a mailing address so you can snail-mail photos to me.  Please remember that the more details you can provide about your car, the better!
