VERY NICE work on the Malibu SS concepts...they look sweet. I own a black Maxx and I am waiting to see what kind of customizing parts are created.

I especially like the "not overstated" ground effects...they remind me of the 1990 Beretta Z cars.

A couple of thoughts...

Did you give any thought to color coded headlight housings like the SEMA Extreme cars? I think the black cars might look pretty cool that way.

Razzi now offers a ground effects kit for the sedan and the Maxx is coming soon.

I actually think I like what you did better.

Keep up the good work!

Yeah, that kit really doesn't do much for me...looks added on and doesn't blend well.

Exactly what I was thinking.

BTW...I copied your picture and "crudely" made black housings...what do you think? (I was fooling around with the emblem and forgot to restore it...sorry)

Doesn't look bad, but to be honest, I don't think it makes that much of a difference.

The headlamp housing idea is nice. Good suggestion. So here it is with the headlight area color matched. And I threw in a Z26 package with side markings and a special paint color.

Like the look...would rather it keep the SS name. However, if they make the Impala the Z34, bring back the Z28 and Z24, I am all for the Z26.

The beauty is that you could have SS and Z26 options. :) Give the Z26 the 3.9L that's going in the G6 GTP. The SS would get a supercharged 3.5 or 3.9.

Here's an updated Z26. More lower trim, Vette inspired headlamps, Z-wheels, colored mirror housing, quad side exhaust (2 each side). Next I'm thinking about a coupe version. :D
