1983 Chevrolet MalibuReview
She's A Runner — Apparently it's a lot more rare than I thought cause everywhere I go someone wants to buy it. Overall though I'm happy within it. It's got a 305 with a mild cam and aftermarket heads not sure on the specs on them though but she gets up and goes. Definitely not a stock 305. She's got duals from the manifold back to a set of Flows and I plan on ordering some headers and have me on by Christmas. Really want to take it to the track and get some numbers, had a few street races and wasn't disappointed but I want some quarter mile times. I'm guessing somewhere in the low 14s probably. Oh and I need a new translation so if anyone has one or has a lead on one let me know.
Pros: It's a pre 90s Chevy need I say more???
Cons: Carb so it sucks on fuel consumption but it's not bad if I keep my foot out of it...I can't keep my foot out of it lol
