Forum rules
FOR CAR ADS :

Please limit five images per ad. A good mix is best, a 3/4 shot from the drivers side front, a 3/4 shot of the passenger side rear, an interior shot, a shot under front hood, and one of the engine. Please list any major work recently done [ie: engine or transmission replacement]. Tune-up's, brake jobs, or new tires are not considered "major work." Also please disclose any significant issues [ie: rust or loud knocking sounds].

We recommend that you shoot as many pictures as you can in a well lit area. Please show details of any problems. You can supply all these images to any of the potential buyers so they know what they are getting into [both good and bad] before going much further.

FOR PARTS ADS:

Again, limit the photos to five per ad. List years the parts fit, part number if you have it, condition of the part [ie: the windshield wiper motor works], contact info and price.

Last but not least please provide contact info [e-mail address and or phone number] and most importantly, how much you want for the car.

So...

The bus paid off about a month and change ago.
I bought a 78 Chevy but as much as I've always liked them, I kinda think I should have tried to find a somewhat decent old bug.
Anyone know of any leads on something that isn't a wreck that I can rock around in?

I really like the Malibu - it's a total throwback and a time capsule that deserves appriciation.
But there's no Malibu clubs, it's too new to cruise with the Heavy Chevy's and too old to do much else.

Brad and I are in talks for something that may work and is something I'm familiar with rather than buying something off Craigslist.

Just listed the Malibu on FB, CL, EBay and Hemmings.

I've never understood the fascination with that era Malibu. I know people use them for racing, but I never saw any real beauty in them. I guess it falls under "to each his own". I love the '64 Galaxie and would buy one if I could, I guess that's a pretty specific thing also.


You trying to get Brad closer to his Sprinter, Mike?

They're really desirable for racing because they're almost a perfect 50:50 weight balance and they're "small" for body on frame cars.
They're very nice drivers, and suprisingly nimble and fun for a truly fat chick from the 70's. They hold tight in corners and they have very little roll in them. It's an experience for sure.
I didn't even know Brad was in the Sprinter market - I've been looking at them as ambulances for 2019 and think they're genius trucks really. They're insanely versatile (is the Sprinter to 2018 what the Kombi was to the 1960's?)
I listed the Malibu on FB, CL, Ebay, and Hemmings. I am going to push to make it work to take over part of the Rasso fleet. It has stripes...

Back in the saddle.
Somehow, being back in a Beetle just feels right.

Thanks Brad and Andrea!

Get a wrap for the "other" car so you have a matching pair.
