Midsize, V8, RWD, 2-door sedans are my favorite type of cars; probably why I have kept my 1967 SS 396 Malibu for over 20 years.

The LS powered GTO's looked like an Acura or such, meh.
The Cadillacs have too much luxury crap, and I don't really care for the angular F-117 stealth fighter themed body that I thought went out of style with late 80's Camaros.

Hopefully the build quality improves, the last round of malibus are complete crap.

The ones before them were worse, trust me.

I wouldn't mind having one if there's a proper transmission...

Must have magnetorheological shock system, then it's king. One of the things I always disliked about my GMs was the boat style handling. My G-bodies were ok, but still, like a boat with a Camaro suspension. Camaros were always too light in the rear, great for doing donuts, but it could get you in trouble easy on slick pavement.

Now Chevy has the best suspension. Both the 1LE and ZL1 performed well out of their price ranges on Virginia Speedway for C&D. Really amazing actually. I'm not a fan of the car, it has other issues, but you have to admit that it's impressive.
