New G3 member - Just bought 73 Malibu

Post by Buzzman on Sat Jul 14, 2012 1:07 pm

Hey all!

I just found and joined this site 5 mins ago!

Just bought a 73 Malibu today! Got it from an ol' friend around the corner bout a block away. I've always wanted one since the mid-late 70's

Anyway - I'm in the So Cal, inland Empire area.

The car needs some work. It's driveable. The brakes suck! the handling is sluggish, the interior needs restoring. I see a few other things that need attention, but hey the a/c works great and I'm second owner of a car with 75k original miles.

I'll be bringing it home today.

I'm hoping this site can be a good resource

Thanks,
Buzzman

Welcome aboard. How mechanically inclined are you? Are you able to do much of the work yourself? I live in garden grove so if you ever need help on a weekend just let me know.

Thanks for the warm welcome! I really appreciate it! I got lots of questions and I'll be asking for some advise now and then.
I haven't picked up the car just yet - waiting on finances - I'll probably get her on Friday ( part of my weekend).
I took a few pics:
This picture hosting site has got me all messed up!
I need help with this! I put 4 pic files on my desktop
WTF?!

Welcome nice 73 and 48-53 truck.

I use photobucket, i can text my pic from my phone to photobucket and it will get uploaded to my account. The app sucks for it, it has to many bugs.

Great buy on that car. You California guys sure are lucky to have iron in such good shape. The Bible says ashes to ashes and dust to dust, around here classic cars just turn to rust and disappear. JB

You did good !! Very Happy The wheels on that car are the same as what was on my '74 Malibu. I didn't know if they were original or not. Maybe they were. I still have three of them around here someplace...
The '73 I had was a plain-jane model, in-line six & 3-speed, when I bought it, no tinted glass, no radio, rubber floor instead of carpet etc. That's about as basic as it gets....

Nice solid car! Those wheels are from a mid 80's monte or Elcamino.

I love those big quarter windows and round tail lights on the 73!


There are much easier ways to post pictures, just depends how computer saavy you are. We all love pictures around here!
