Hello all, my names Eric. I own a 2000 Chevy Malibu .and I'm sponsored by MP Racing. I'm from Decatur, Il. You can view my ride at Cardomain, the link is in my signature. I popped in over due to Mark and the Chicago meet that's being planned. I can be found over at mpracing.org/forum and united malibu's site.

Thanks guys, I hope to come into the forum on a regular basis. I'll inform everyine when I've planned a meet with my fellow Bu owners from the Malibu Cruisers Midwest Chapter, which I'm in charge of, and maybe some of the GA guys might want to join in on this too.

I love the combination of the dark blue on the car, and your rims. Very nice.

Thanks! Funny thing is I've got the 17's which you see in the avatar and the 18's I'm running on, but are different design and color rims. Got plans to PC the 17's before winter and have the lip on the 18's polished and cleared over the winter.

Hmm, your bumper has the holes for dual exhaust, it looks out of place with just the one tip there.

he ran a pipe from one side of his bumper to the other for fun? me dont think so...


on a side note, those tails look HORRID! one of my friends had them when they first came out and he was super pissed because of the shotty construction. I waited forever for tails when i had my malibu. my condolences. lol

Guess I've pulled one over on a few, at least someone noticed the exhaust, and to bring those up to date I have installed a muffler for the time being and that is why the tailpipe is now on the opposite side. I still have planned a Cat-Back system from MP Racing, it's just I was feeling a little down since the damage to my front bumper and wanted to change something at least. I'm real happy getting my new plates, didn't feel right without a personalized saying. I've not been able to get time to have the bumper fixed yet. Surprizingly enough I've got a deal coming for me that will make things so much better, but this means the Bu will not be seen starting sometime late in the fall, I can tell a few but it's gonna have to be in person, it will take a while for me to explain.

Now what else can happen to bring me down into the gutter again!

Yeah I'm pissed about these Taillights! I'd like to push to get a company to make a set of taillights in LED and not have the issue of leaks or poor fitment. I am going to yank these tails off sometime soon and try pulling the outer lense off to clean them up on the inside and reseal them back together.

Oh I wanted to post a few Vids of my evening at Coles County Dragway, granted I'm still feeling out the track and car to get the best results but here's two burnouts and two runs.

I'm gonna take pictures of the time slips at this 1/8 mile track to let anyone see them. My best time was a 10.78 at 65 mph and the worst was a 11.14, but I don't remember the speed.
