This is why when I hear people say "they don't build them like they used to" I say good!

Am I the only one that's pissed they destroyed a classic? That thing could have been AMAZING with just a little bit of TLC. Screw the malibu, drive it off a cliff for all I care.

A revolution gets its name by always coming back around in your face.

If it was a 69 Camaro I'd be sad, but that 59 Bel Air isnt anything too special IMHO.
