Easy To Mod. Light Yet Lots Of Room. — well the fact it's the last model 2 door and it can take any engine or trany combo U can think of. really adds to it. next engine i'm getting ready to install 455 Buick, and since it's a Buick engine I think I will install some creature comforts the car never had. like air cruise, tilt.

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

Pros: getting rare

Cons: all you'll see of it is tail lights

Had It's Time — 10 years ago, It was the most known Malibu in Mansour. It was fast enough to famous. and known for the huge accident i had with a Nissan Sunny back in 2001 lol And there was not any dented places but couple of scratches in the front of the Malibu. Made of Iron. lol

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: Comfy

Cons: Bad Brakes, Bad Bad

My First Car - You're In Love With Your First Car Forever, And I'll Never Get Rid Of It!!!! — This car is like my soul mate. It was my first car, its been through so many changes and additions and subtractions itll make your head spin. after turning it into a 2 door from a 4 door, its been sitting for a few years... i wanna fix my other vehicles into decent shape, then get back to making this like the drawings, and stick a 327 twin turbo in it :)

Pros: its only 3,300 pounds and you can stick ANY kind of engine in it. VERY universal, lots of stuff you can do to these cars, they make KICK ASS lowriders, drag cars, everything!

Cons: ... its a pretty plain box of a granny-car, so you kind of HAVE to do lots of stuff to these cars so they kick ass!! lol haha!

Iraqi Taxi Was A Solid Built Machine! — The 3-speed stick (on the floor) made the front bench seat kind of useless, but hey, it's a classic!

Pros: Size and shape, classic 80's GM

Cons: Fixed rear door windows, front bench and floor shift
