My name is Scott, and im an addict! I have had Malibu's on and off for the past 17 years or so. My current Malibu's i own are a 1979 (Red) and a 1980 (Yellow). The 1979 I pretty much race every weekend I can. I originally bought the 1980 early last spring in hopes to have a double duty street and race car. It has a built 462 BBC and a TH350 trans. 12 bolt rear with 456 gears and ladder bar set up. The day before we were going to the track i changed all the fluids and low and behold there were teeth missing on the ring gear and pinion.... needless to say it was beat on. So it sits until i can get all the parts together since it broke the Posi carrier as well. I have a spool and just need to collect the other parts as of now.

The 1979 was a gift from my GF a few months later as she knew i was depressed. Yay me! lol she has always been by my side and didnt lke the yellow one anyway..lol The 1979 has an LS 6.0 swap a powerglide trans and a 9 inch with ladder bar set up. It runs strong and as of currently has a best of 7.08 in the 1/8th at 97 MPH.

anyways.. here are some pics for your enjoyment.
