I'm 16 and drive a 67 Malibu <beat-up, ripped seats(seat springs hurt by the way),primered trunk, 5 year old Earl Shrieber $99 paint job, looks like a Car Craft feature car(love Car Craft)> and slowly being restored when I get the $. I got a new front suspension kit and disc brakes at least. The people talking about their high schools in the Chevelle Owners-Dying Breed? post sure got it made. Only my '67, 2 Mustangs, and a 69 Elky remain now since the Seniors graduated. Every other car is either a rice burner or a new and lowered truck. I got so ticked off that I am starting a club just for Generation X-ers who drive classic cars. I'll soon have the website up and running http://genxrodsandcustoms.8m.com
and pics and other stuff uploaded. And since I didn't want to have to pay money to the state and I'm too broke to pay for a membership, I decided to make it free to join. However you must be a part of Generation X. Team Chevelle and Classic Cars Forever! Woohoo!

Good idea! I'm 21 and there's no one my age doing what I've been doing. While everyone else is looking for the best and loudest stereo for their car, I'm still trying to find an original 8-track player for mine. I understand I may not "qualify" for your club, but its a great idea. I've got a 72 Chevelle and I just bought a 71 SS that need a ton of work, so I'm really getting into this car-thing heavy. I grew up restoring and building classic cars (thanks Dad!). I figured I'd wait till after college to get one, but I couldn't. I bought my 72 just after my Junior year and I just bought the 71 about a month and a half ago. I graduated in December with a Bachelor's degree in Biology, but I know a lot more about Chevelles than I do about Biology now! I love it. Its good to see America's youth doing something besides going to jail.

BTW, nice homepage! You should put your car on there, no matter what shape its in. Who's Woody Wagon is that? Very nice!!

Thanks for the replies guys. And 72Malibu you do qualify for the club Generation X is anyone age 15-35 as of now. And 454 I could use some help if you want to. E-mail me and we'll work something out. 72Malibu, I don't know who's Woody that is. Some guy sent me the pic a long time ago because he wanted to sell it. Do you like the pic at the bottom of the page? My friend made it. And I'm getting pics of my 67 as soon as my friend scans 'em. Thanks again.

SoCAlRat, WOW I'm in. I was just beginning to feel old and I just made the tail end of X , born in 61. I'm relieved to hear you guys are still into Detroit Iron. If I had $$$ to burn I'd ship the 396 coming out of my 67 to the west coast so you could eat a paddy full of rice burners for lunch! I'll help any way I can. Keep the fire burnin' man.

Hey I'm 18 and the only kid in my high school who actually owns my own Chevelle. Others kids drive their dad's or grandma's and pretend that it is really theirs. Count me in, man.

Thanks guys for the support. We need to spread the word! 454 is going to help me build the site and I got Gene Chas backing me up(You made it bud right on the deadline) and I saw his clean 67(makes me want to cry Steve that he was thinking of selling it! Good choice Gene!). And Gene, future plans on my 67 call for a 350 or 383 Stroker so hold on to that 396 cause I can smoke riceburners even with my 283! And Steve, I've been checking ads everyday for you buddy! We're gonna get you a 65! (BTW The mag came today, the cash is in the mail) And the BEST news about the club is its FREE cause we all know that the cash goes into the car not into a club unless people want to donate
which I would appreciate because as soon as we start getting members we're gonna get stickers for your cars. Thanks for the support again. If you want to help with the website or anything e-mail me at [email protected] I welcome all pics! Gene can I put your 67 on there? And remember, Open those headers, dump the clutch, and let GenX show you how it's done!

Just a side note. I passionately hate it when kids tell me that I should put a system in my '69. Screw that, AM is the way to go. Most people can't believe that I actually spent money to get my center speaker working.

Chris,
I'll tell you this. I have a Pioneer CD player in mine now. Future plans are to install an AM and hide CD player in a repro tissue dispenser! Just a thought!

Hey Jason-
Thanks for the words man! Hope you enjoy that Chevelles mag! Hey, how close are you to riverside? Check at Auto Trader Online I was cruising through, there's a 66 kickin' it there that sounds pretty tight!(Plus it's in the range of having 8300 to fix it up!) But(there's always that) I don't want to go an hour and a half for a piece o' crap that I turn around from when I lay my eyes on it.
Anyway Thanks.
Hey also, I got some pretty dope pics of a 69 yesterday. Crusing to the liquor store this 69 350 Malibu caught my eye so I had my friend snap some pics, it's sad, it's rotting away! And the $%&**& Grandma won't sell it, believe me I tried! It's pretty funny all the bird **** on the drivers side quarter panel!
I'll get it developed!

Yea, I'm kinda thinking it's a piece but I guess you never know my 64 cost me 700 bucks because the guy needed $$$$. Thanks for the ads but I don't think I want to go that far right now, maybe if I get desperate enough!
Also I'm looking 64-69 right now, considering good deals on 70's.

SoCal, my pic is yours, but what "gen" is my 2 yr old behind the wheel!
Hey malibu4door, I've got a wicked arse sound system planned for my '67 it's got three Holley 80211's, 11:1, that beautiful symphony of 16 solid lifters, 2" primary tubes.

Hey SoCalRat. Sounds like a good idea, i'm in.

Saskatchewan, Canada. Now you have the Canadian Praries too


1971 Malibu, no engine :O
Sold the 350 out of it for 2G's, now i'm about 3 weeks away from starting up my monster 454, oh ya. That's gonna be sweet. I'm 19 btw. You guys want to know devotion to Chevelles, of the 4 years of working i've done, I spent about 90-95% of everything I made over those 4 years on my Chevelle. And if I could do it again, I wouldn't change a thing, well, maybe I wouldn't back the car off the ramps with the jack under it again
. Anyway, I'll help if you need it. You can check out my page at member.xoom.com/Gandalf80/Chris'sPage.html

Chevelles Forever!
Chris

btw, old restored cars are plentiful in the auto trader up here so there isn't a shortage yet!
