well i dunno if i ever posted anything on this car or not, but since i took some pics this weekend i figured i would post it and see what y'all think.

this malibu is one i have had for sevral years, i bought it off a local guy for 100 bucks. i figured what the hey, i like these cars and have a lot of spare parts laying around that i have taken off my car over the years.

it started out as i was just gonna back half it, but once i got into it, it just didn't make sense to not put the frame in it and finish it up. i have done everything on this car from narrow the rear end, bent the cage, make the four link plates and bars, i even made my own a-arms. the wheels and tires are off my car, old shifter, etc. anyhow let me know what you guys think, i took it to a guy this weekend to get some aluminim in it, he said 3-4 weeks, so we shall see!

yep glass doors, front end, hood, decklid, rear bumper. i hoonestly don't know what it will weigh when done, mine weighs 2750 with me in it, but it has steel fenders on it and an aluminim headed bbc.

this will have a aluminim headed sbc in it. i got some brodix track ones for it.... i just hope it runs in the 12's O:)

Looks good Cory, that's some nice work. On the 4-link frame brackets, I would weld those all the way up if you haven't already.

That's the same front suspension that's under my Studebaker. Chris Alston's ChassisWorks out of Calif. Pretty good stuff and also pretty easy to assemble. Just bolt it together, measure it out and weld in on. So simple a Caveman could do it! O:) =; \:D/ Yup, I did! =;

i actually took someones brackets and a-arms and copied them =; i made a jig and bent the tube to fit on my bender, it was a helluva lot cheaper!

mel, those were my thoughts on it too, everything is so cheap compared to a bbc, plus the car is lighter, and if i want to go fast i will drive the other car! =;
