My '74 Malibu Classic was that same gold/brass type color originally, I discovered, then painted dark metalic brown with a beige vinyl top. That's how it was when I bought it in 1990. Hard for me to believe that I've owned it for that long! It's Firethorn now, inside and out.
Good to see that there's a gal who works on cars!!
Very Happy

If I changed from the Rallies, I'd go to a Torq-Thrust D. The ones with the grey centers.

I was going to run them only for my race tires. You can't have the tirm rings on your rallies when you run. No

It's not so much the Rally wheels themselves, but the nasty looking center cap that I don't like. They just look out of place. Torque Thrust D's OTOH are sweet. I only know of ONE G3 running them & it ain't an Elky. I say go for it. Thumbs up

Look back at some of my older posts about my Keystones (TT look-a-likes). I almost ran those, but couldn't find tires for 14" wheels.

ya rago i agree about the center caps, for a while i was just going to paint my rallys black and leave the trim ring chrome and forget about the center capslol, i think they bulge out to far. im probably just gonna go with the centerline wheels

Yup. Todd's 77 Malibu. He posted once or twice here, but mainly sticks to the "other" forum. Jacking

It's getting a fresh coat of paint right now. Real nice car.

Yeah I found that out recently. I wouldn't mind spraying them black with the flat caps & no trim rings if I had a set.

LoL, not looking for a set. I like aluminum wheels personally, but if I were stuck with a heavy set of steel Rally wheels, then that's what I would do.... or sell them to some Rally loving sucker for enough money to buy some aluminum rims. Razz

I noticed that. Nice subtle touch of custom on the red stripes. These are the types of customizing that should be done to cars. Stuff that doesn't jump out at first glance, but takes a second or third look to notice. Professional builders use several of these on all builds to make people stare the car over longer & notice something new every time you see the car. I've always wanted to chop an inch off of the roof of a car just so people would know something wasn't right, but couldn't put their finger on what it was.

Choping a top is a lot of work you know but, would be cool to see what a-body would like like with a in out of the top above the window. Twisted Evil
