Just HAD to tease ya a bit Malc! You know that!


Choke horns:
Most of the guys will mill off the choke horn off to pick up a few cfms in the carb.


The Malibu is a bust.
Went to pick it up last night. The pics looked great, but it was a roach. The body had more rust and holes than I wanted to deal with. Also, the welds didn't really make me feel 100% confident. It was rattle can primered 2 years ago, and rust was forming on the tubes. Not really cozy with the thought of stripping/sanding or sandblasting 200'+ of tubing. Didnt like the the way he did the shock box in the back of the car. He was copying a local pro builder, but missing important elements that would be tough to install now.
Overall, its a good deal, but it just wasn't for me, the way I like to build.

Maybe I'll buy a JD-1 bender, some tubing and start from scratch.

Sorry Malc, I just reread the top of the post.

BTW, How about some old school bars on the back, would top it off nice.

Old skool bars look like the back of Grumpys 72 Vega. The bar comes straight down from the rear frame horn, then 45's up toward the rear end housing toward the frame. Basically an icosolese traingle at a right angle to the ground.
