"I've had this car since I started driving. It has been finished three times. Each time I've found new technology and other things to improve on." That pretty much sums up Troy Stogdill's outlook on this '81 Malibu-a car that he says was built for about 15 grand. Is that a lot? Could be. Is that a lot for blown small-block power, really nice paint, an overdrive trans, toss-out-the-boat-anchor Baer brakes, and nice wheels and tires? Not really. Troy spent his money in the right places to come up with this relatively basic but still pretty sweet street cruiser for commuting between home in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and work at HP Motorsport, in Omaha, Nebraska.
