Johnny Lightning 1981 Chevy Malibu Zinger

In the 1970s, some custom cars called Zingers came onto the car show circuit in a big way.  These cars had huge tires and big overblown engines.  Here's some more info about how they came to be:

In 2003, Johnny Lightning introduced a new series also called Zingers.  I'm pretty sure these car designs were influenced by the originals.  I've only got a few of the JL Zingers in my collection, but not to worry, Johnny Lightning is still banging them out in 2018.  You can find the complete list of Zingers at  This sweet black and gray Chevy Malibu Zinger is one of my favourites.
This one is from the Toys R Us 4 pack that came out in 2010.

You can see the detail of the rear tail lights.

In this side profile you can see the exhaust and side marker light detail.

The bottom of the doors are emblazoned with the words Chevrolet.

The interior of the Malibu is a light gray, almost blue colour.

Cool, how the sun glistens on the side exhaust pipe.
