I recently bought a 1980 Malibu off a buddy. I just started ordering parts, starting with a UMI Stage 2 handling package, quick performance rear end, and wilwood brakes to get started for this year. Engine and transmission will be upgraded in the future, but it's currently running and driving with a 350 and turbo 350. I also plan on skinning the passenger door and fixing the RR quarter panel. I need to get some pictures before I really tear into it. I am still not completely decided on engine trans combo, but leaning towards a 383 and 700r4. Also considering the LS route, but I need to do a bunch more reading. Looking forward to learning through the forums!
