Here's my car, have at it.

This is in reference to what was started in the second VC thread, I want it "rat finked" with a monster tweety sticking out of the roof like the rat fink character.

I voted leave it the way it is, only because it is a 4dr and in the newer years or late 70's early 80's, there kind of looked down on as 4dr's, and there only admired for what they are ( the 4dr ) in your case Malibu ) and nothing else, they won't appreciate the car as what it actully is, and the time and money it took to make it look like that, just because it has an extra set of doors, unless you get sombody who loves 4dr's. What I would do even tho it would throw the " Stock " out the window, is suicide the rear doors, and leave them partially open at the show ( use the chrome lock rods to hold them, so someone can't just get in and sit ). This will bring out a viable amount of customization that many people would reconize and they wouldn't take the car for granted.

Depending upon the judges at any particular show, I either do or do not have the number of modifications to show it in either stock or modified.

I have very legitimate arguments against the modified for the paint and interior colors.

I have the air dam, spoiler, and stripes covered by the use of the M80 package available back in 1980 and 1981 as a dealer option that the cars to receive this package were to be sent to Choo-Choo Custom's in Tennessee.
I have an original air dam and spoiler, and painted the stripes to correct dimensions for the M80, but I still have yet to paint the required stripes to the sides like listed in the options for the poll.

I have used the RPO code for non-recommended color for the paint, and it worked- since it cannot be argued against since I have a Chevrolet color coded paint for that year.

I have asked if they really knew what colors were available from the factory for the interior color, and this worked too- since this could have been changed at the dealership, or sent to an approved custom shop such as Choo-Choo Custom's.

I have not gotten around the style of wheels when I had the aluminum 5-spoke Camaro wheels, and these replaced the Pontiac Firebird wheels the came came to me with, so there was one legit count against me. I am now using a genuine Chevrolet rally wheel, so I am now technically correct there, I just think the other option in my poll of painting the wheels black with the stainless rings, and painting the raised portions around the outer holes silver will set the black off.

The engine is the original and everything under the hood looks as is should have back in 1981.

The only real changes that would not allow me into stock classes are the transmission, and rear axle gear ratio, but at a national show I was told that if they don't ask, I shouldn't tell them.

Next year I will have to enter into the modified class unless I keep the hood closed. I won't get into that right now, but I plan on leaving the original engine long block alone.

OK back to the main reason I posted this thread.

Lets see some computerized changes to my car.

Wow. That really looks good for a 4 door car! The 1 piece rear window sure makes a world of difference. Looks great!
