Thumbs Up Thats The Reaction I Get From People On The Street. — not much too add this car took three years to complete,didnt much like the interior until last year started to change it from a bench seat ,to a floor shift , a counsel ,buckets seats out of a monte carlo and went from gray to black interior, came out better than Iimagined since I did the work myself.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: I purcased this car about three years ago.Found it a driveway in LaGRange.It was sold by a grandson of the owner,she kept hitting the side of the house in the driveway so they convinced her it was time to sell.Ialways had an idea what i wanted to do as far as remodeling an this is the finished work .

Cons: That I have to sell it.

People Give Postive Comments About It — Love it allot... thought the color is not my favorite. Performance is not the best though it's not the worst. Cost of ownership is not a whole lot. This car is a blast to drive. It might have a small block v8 305 but it is got get up and go!!!!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: love classics

Cons: N/A

Awesome! — It's got a tuned 350 engine wich delivers about 350hp. TH350 automatic transmission. 9" Ford in the back. Has done 13.69 @ 100mph on the drag strip. Is in fairly good body condition and I'm working on removing all the rust.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It's a muscle car, is there anything more you need?

Cons: None, I love it!

79 Malibu !!!!!!! — This would have been a nice old chevy if I dumped about 5 grand into it. It's better to just cruise in these the way thet are.

Pros: Classic Chevy.  small-block v8

Cons: some people just don't understand this style

I Miss This Car — For those of you who remember high school I used to cruise in the 'bu. Loved the car. It had a personality of it's own. Crazy thing is after being in my family for 19 years I can't seem to find any pictures of it. If anyone out there has a pic of my camel brown pimp mobile, please pass it on.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Too many.

Cons: Not enough HP.
