Default My 1980 Malibu

I picked this car up a couple years ago after keeping my eye on it for years until I finally knocked on the door of the guy that owned it. Turned out it had just come up for sale!

Originally it had a 305, and it's a F41 car. Since I bought it I have dropped a bone stock '79 454 into it with a TH400, fixed the frame with Conrad Lozier's replacement rear frame rails, upgraded to belltech sway bars and triangulated the front jounce bars (what a difference.) Oh and it's on propane.
In the near future I plan on putting in QA1 coilovers on all 4 corners, tubular control arms up front, and some 17" wheels.

The only thing I would change would be to push the rears out about .5" but hey, I could only be so accurate in measuring ideal backspace with coupling nuts and a square lol
