CC Outtake: A Yenko Malibu?

Sometimes a car will scream for attention from several blocks away. Such was the case with this Yenko Malibu.

Much has been written over time about Don Yenko, his Chevrolet dealership, and his modified Camaros, Novas, Chevelles, and Corvairs.

He quit modifying cars in 1972 due to concerns about federal safety regulations. So what is this?

It was born as a 1980 Chevrolet Malibu. What lurks under the hood was not able to be determined, although the hood is stock.

Being found in an iffy part of town, I did not venture too close nor dawdle too long.

Google searches for this creature yielded extremely little, leading to the conclusion it was the recipient of a lot of work and creativity.
