    Dave: This car brings back a lot of my childhood memories!!!!!! my brother joined the CHP in 1975 when i was six years old. the first CHP unit i rode in was a 1974 Monaco. i was enthralled with this car as it had a great impact on me. great restoration job in and out!!! i hated to see it go to germany though. great website!!!

    Dave: It looks like your building this as a CHP unit. FYI: The "E" plate would be incorrect for a state unit. The plate you have on it would be for a city or county. On the state "E" plate the "E" was in a diamond rather than an octogon.

    And Dave says:
    Yup, I know. But I have been unable to locate a diamond E plate, so the octagon is temporary until I do.
