I know it's just an ordinary car to most. And even the color took a while to grow on me. But this is the car I remember getting picked up from gradeschool/highschool in when I was younger and riding to car shows in before I was old enough to drive. lol. So I guess it just holds a lot of sentimental value to me more than anything. I gave myself a headache day after day for a couple weeks debating if i could bring myself to sell my silver car to buy his. So I owe a lot to the wife for helping me make this happen so that I can keep both.

Give that girl some roses!

Glad you were able to hang on to it.

So it started out as a Malibu Classic?

Thats great! Good to see you could keep it. If I had the chance to get back one of my dads cars I would in a heartbeat. I bet you look at the pics of your grandparents there and say "where did the time go ? " I know I do that looking at pics of my grandparents and even my parents and say that. Neat cars both of them. Enjoy em!

Glad you are able to keep both ... always good to be able to get a car with so much sentimental value. It's far from an ordinary car, for those very reasons.
