On the Mark Mal­ibu

Chevy High Performance - - Straight Line -

Penn­syl­va­nia’s Peter Oakes cam­paigns a metic­u­lously main­tained and per­fectly prepped 1966 Mal­ibu sta­tion wagon. Tar­get­ing Stock Elim­i­na­tor—J/SA in par­tic­u­lar—Peter has been ac­tively rac­ing with this car since 1983. Re­cently, the car was given a fresh coat of paint, which gave it a new look while main­tain­ing its orig­i­nal style. That ef­fort was re­warded al­most im­me­di­ately when it was awarded Best Ap­pear­ing at the NHRA Dutch Clas­sic event held at Maple Grove Race­way in 2016. Bernard Brothers built the car and Steve Fi­cacci as­sem­bled the 327ci en­gine, which, of course, uses Chevro­let Per­for­mance parts ex­ten­sively. Peter’s team in­cludes his wife, Anet; son Shane; and daugh­ter-in-law Sara.
