Those guys were not fans of the 73-77 malibus. Here is another article from Curbside Classics.

I love how they found a raggedy example to photograph.

People either love 'em or hate 'em. The articles are good examples of outsiders opinions.

The haters usually cite dismal HP, too big etc.  And they are usually older guys who only appreciate older cars. One of my favorite common bi##hes is the big bumpers, but the same guy will tell you how they love the big chrome bumpers of the 50's. Go figure. We know the truth about the size and HP comparisons.

The folks that appreciate them like the style of them.

Just about every time I stop for gas, I see a youngster taking a pic with their phone. Haters usually can't even work a smart phone.

I get a lot of positive feedback about my car also. Hell a high school friend I had not seen since high school, who has had the same '69 chevelle (396 4 speed) since high school,  told me he always thought the '73/'77's were kinda cool.  Besides they were very popular when they were common, as they got older people gravitated to the earlier cars.

My Malibu is stored at the airport in a hangar, where we store a few cars for folks during the winter. I'm always asked if I would sell it, and how much I would take for it etc.. Don't think it's time to sell yet, since it costs me nothing for storage.

I took mine up to the gas station and parts store the other day to fill er up and get stabilizer since it's gonna sit a bit this winter. Sad At the gas station two 20-ish guys were taking pics of it, then another guy got his girlfriend to take a pic of him with it at the parts store.

The only folks I ever hear any guff from are usually just the cranky guys that don't like anything made after 1970, anything not made in Detroit, and anything that costs under 10 grand, anything with more than two doors or even a bed.

Car Snobs.

Real car guys like a little of everything.

Real car guys like all sorts of old cars. Even F**d, and other makes even if they can't say it out loud. We just happen to like some things better than others. That's mostly because we remember them as our first car or the one we "drove" at 6 or 7 years old. (you know on dad's knees) or the one that our older cousin / neighbor / family friend had, it's more the memory of something.

That's cool.  I've had my '74 for twenty years (I bought it when I was 19). What are your plans for it?

This is what I'm talking about !! I suggest you keep it after you can't drive any more and have someone drive you around in it. That's my plan. Smile

Welcome by the way. I hope you enjoy your ride.
