History
This car was picked up back in 2001 by my brother. The car used to show off a Placer Gold with a vinyl top, and a standard Malibu hood. However, I only knew that after stripping the car. He had the entire drivetrain rebuilt, but left the exterior alone other than replacing the hood and fenders. I took the car over back in 2017. Since then, I've had the car stripped one piece at a time and got it in epoxy primer. It's had quite a bit of fiberglass and bondo on the quarter panels which have since bad the lower portion reskinned with new metal. The trunk has also been patched up and refurbished with a few custom patches done to the wheelhouses. It sure has gone a long way in only 2 years.
