BARONA 2014 RENEGADE GAMBLER SERIES #1 The Chevrolet Vega is a subcompact
automobile that was produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors
(GM) from 1970 to 1977. The car's name came from a bright star in the
northern skies.Available in two-door hatchback, notchback, wagon, and
panel delivery body styles, all models were powered by an inline
four-cylinder engine with a lightweight, aluminum alloy cylinder block. The
Vega competed directly with its domestic rivals from Ford and AMC and
imports from Toyota and Datsun as well as the aging VW Beetle. The Vega
received praise and awards at its introduction, including 1971 Motor Trend
Car of the Year. Subsequently the car became widely known for early
model problems concerning its engineering, reliability, safety,
propensity to rust, and engine durability. The one-millionth Vega was
produced in May, 1973 The Vega was among the top 10 best-selling
American cars in 1974. The Cosworth Vega, a short-lived
limited-production performance model was introduced in March 1975.
Despite annual improvements,further development with design
upgradesand efforts to improve the car's image,Chevrolet cancelled
the Vega and its aluminum engine at the end of the 1977 model run.1972
models had a revised Exhaust system
and driveline to reduce vibration and noise; also revised shock absorbers.
turbo-hydramatic three-speed automatic
transmission and custom cloth interior were optional and a glove box was

Jim and his 73 Vega Station Wagon
Just a little clip I put together of my friend Jim and his 73 Vega. Jim
just got this car back on the road after being down for over 6 years. It's
on an all new set-up that Jim built himself from the ground up in his
garage. Some of the highlights are a 370ci LSX assembled by Jim with 243
(LS6) heads assembled and ported/polished by Jim, twin Precision 6262's,
custom manifolds, down-pipes and Exhaust all fabbed, welded and polished by Jim.
Intercooler is a custom water
to air also built and polished by Jim. Fuel is good ol' pump E85. About
the only thing Jim hasn't done on the car is the tuning which he had Jeremy
of Servion Tuning do using HPtuners at Revolutions Performance. The car
still has a few odds an ends to finish up before it's 100% streetable while
also to click off 8 second 1/4 mile times. So far on the break-in tune
it's already put down over 900whp and 800wtq.
