    Pssst.... anything with SS on it needs to have tint! Theres nothing worse than sporty cars (or wanna be ricers) that you can see right through the windows :P

    I like the rims and almost everything else except the front end. Too much goofy stock Malibu look for my tastes.

    i've pondered much how the front of the malibu could be fixed, but i just don't know. your chop is very nice, but the factory front just kills it. it's such an ugly front end that i can't even think of simple changes that would fix it. it needs a re-do from the A-pillar forward.

    It needs the SS badges on the doors at least
    Sorry China, we'll buy your disposable electronics and lead coated toys, but when we Americans want a cheap car with horrible quality, we get a Chrysler.

    I was thinking about the front end of the malibu and if you are good with photoshop, I've always wondered what the front end would look like if you moved the front lights down between the crossbar and made the crossbar body colored.

    now I'm kind of embarrassed that I didn't tint the windows more on my SS concept. Well I took care of that non-crisis. heh

    maybe it should use something else and not further destroy the SS name.

    Well here's a suggestion if you want to continue with the Maxx SS. Try extending the hatch area so that the roof comes just about all the way back, using the Nomad for cues. Include an integrated spoiler on the back of the roof to give it a far more sporty look. This would be quite a makeover, but it might look nice in an SS package. And yes, bring the rockers down.
