My DD '80 Malibu/229 V6/TH350C is a piece, but it's MY piece. In another 30 years they'll say it has 'patina'. Now it could be said the original paint's kinda shot, the only time it looks halfway decent is when it's wet! lol But no rust and no accidents (had it since 12K miles). I have a Vortec engine for it but it's not together yet.



Garrell, shame they're doing you that way, but the comment that you're raising teenage heart attacks IS funny! Keep your chin up, It'll work out, I'm sure.

Thanks for the kind words, Brian. I originally bought it for my Mom. One of those deals where I could never sell it, it's a member of the family now.

Not to get too far OT, but do you remember when the Chevy II wagons were the schitz in the lower Stock classes? IIRC they got a pretty hefty weight break over the 2-door cars plus better weight distribution.

Mine is my 57 Chevy pickup. About the wife / honeymoon thing it was a 67 Plymouth GTX 440, 4speed. Still have the wife after 37 years but wish I still had the GTX too.

2008 Chevy Silverado extended cab, lowered seven inches in the rear and five inches in the front (still not enough). Way too high from the factory.
