GM just announced that the Chevrolet Malibu would be the first in the fleet to have LTE data connections enabled in the cabin. And well looky here — the first one was just dropped off in my driveway.
Having four SS Chevys plus a 1968 Camaro parked in a fitting garage close to some desert roads in sunny California is not a bad way of spending retirement.
Lawmakers are still trying to do everything possible to stop people texting while driving. It's proving an uphill battle to break people of the habit, though, and cars are now being equipped with technology to let you keep texting with both hands on the wheel. Sort of like a nicotine patch for texting while driving.
In Pulp Fiction, Vincent Vega has a speech he likes to give about why you never fuck with another man's vehicle. "It's just against the rules," he says. That quote became absurdly ironic after the car John Travolta drives in that movie — a 1964 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu — was stolen in real life 19 years ago.
Hey, you know the Chevrolet Malibu? No? Can't picture it off the top of your head? That's okay, we can't blame you. It hasn't been particularly inspiring. But we hear that GM is aiming to fix that.

Certainly it comes as a shock to no one that there aren't many Pre-A Porsche 356s sitting in barns and finding an old Gullwing or 250 GT is a nearly impossible task even if somehow you actually have the money to pay for one.

Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Repo Man made the Chevy Malibu a cult favorite, so here's our second example in as many months.
They may be heroes at the drag strip or the dirt track, but the good ol' midsize 80s GM rear-driver is just too big and the small-block Chevrolet engine just too overheat-prone to hold together well in LeMons.
