    The Corvair

    In the tradition of mild rebadging, I present what a Malibu hybrid should be... The 2009 Chevy Corvair




    you guys are lucky, I rarely ever go back after i kick one of these things out, but your comments seemed well thought out enough... so here is version 2:

    I can't say I'm a fan of cars without grilles.

    Ick. The thing I hate most about the Malibu (the headlights) you made into the main focalpoint.

    no offense, but that front is almost painful to look at, bring back the grill, make it chrome, get rid of the bar running along the front, make the roofline more curvacious and add lines across the side to match and you have an elegant looking midsizer.

    And I actually like it more than the Malibu. It still looks goofy, but not goofy because it tries to look like a normal car while it can't, but goofy-original.

    lo, it's goofie, yes... but going along w/ the others... yuck. Not a fan.

    How about bring back the grill, give it a new bumper, import the Impala lights, and a new green house...

    You forgot the oil slick under the Corvair. Pretty good looking machine though, but yeah, I like a car with a grille too.
