Marple,
Great looking car!
Haven't seen you at the track this year.
What's going on with the car, or is it
the Sunday night deal?

Marple it looks great. there is a kid from down south that runs a 79 Malibu (i believe) with the Monte nose on it. Car is a light purple color. Them cars look great with the Monte nose on them. Im putting a Monte nose on the new 77 Nova im in the process of building right now im sure that will look pretty good also. Eddie

Marple,

I wouldn't know what to do with that
Chevy stuff, Blue oval here.

I live in Coney, cars in shop in Barton.
Shift change at work really hurt me
time wise this year. I'm trying though.

Marple,im in the process of building a 79 malibu.Question?Did you remove the body mount bushings,if so how much clearence do you have between your firewall and bell housing,will the drive shaft rub?in my class the engine must be in stock location.Also how tall are your springs.Car looks great!

actually the body skin is just hanging on this car.but when we used to just gut em n run em i never fooled with the body bushings.and my stock firewall is in the scrap pile.its got a late model style interior.
my engine isnt far from stock.its only back two inches or so.you should be fine. have 9.5" springs in this car.
