I also had a mid-70s Monza with the V8 option. I took it to the dealer who advertised a $49.95 tune-up. After dealing with the eighth plug nightmare prevoulsy, I decided to see what the dealer would do. Lo and behold, the original eighth plug was still there following the work. When I brought it to his attention, he said a tune-up including that plug change was $149. I should have made it a test case...
The scariest problem for me, though, was the throttle linkage. If you pushed down smartly on the gas pedal, the crank arm on the carburetor would go over center and the return spring would hold the throttle in the wide-open position. The only recourse was to turn off the ignition and hope that during the 'excitement' (read 'panic') I didn't turn the key far enough to lock the steering! I would pull to the side of the road and simply flip the crank arm back. And, oh yes, change my underwear...
I had a 76 Monza. (Actually, I married a girl who had bought it the year before.) It had the 2.3 liter 4-cylinder engine that featured cast iron pistons in an aluminum block. I had to have it re-sleeved at about 80,000 miles and had to do so much work on that car it wasn't funny. The 2.3 was coupled to the same 3-speed automatic that they used in Impalas, so there was no acceleration. They tried to increase the acceleration a little bit by using s smaller, air-cooled torque converter, but that didn't help. You had to check 0 - 60 with a calendar instead of a stopwatch. You didn't have to worry about the air conditioner pulling down the engine --- it didn't have air. And the car sat so close to the ground if you ran over a dime you could feel it through the seat. The trunk was so shallow you couldn't put a carton of milk in to come home from the store. I later learned that the Monza was merely a fancy package to get rid of a large inventory of old Vega parts. I still prefer Fords because of that car.
