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.

Words, Photos, and Video by Dawn Mazi-Hovsepian
A little over a month ago, I received a text message stating that several
mutual friends were going to collaborate on a paint scheme for a 1972 Vega
nostalgia funny car. Steve Crook and Mark Stipich, co-owners of S & M Auto
Body (http://www.sandmautobody.us) in Eastlake, Ohio, were going to apply
the paint, and longtime family friend Dan DeLaney, aka Dan the Sign Man
(http://www.dansignman.com) of Tonawanda, New York, was going to handle the
layout and hand lettering for the team. Crook, Stipich and Brian Korelec
presented Dan with a concept of what they wanted done, as well as their
color choice for the car. DeLaney roughed out a 'napkin sketch' of his
interpretation and received instant approval to roll with it.
I was so thoroughly impressed with Dan's sketch and respect for the car's
era, that I sent a text message back to him saying, "Having a crazy idea of
doing a time lapse video of you doing your thing. Other than wraps on
stock cars and the like, no one has done this before." Within minutes of
that initial message, I had pitched the idea to Lohnes and began making
plans with Dan to spend a week at his shop. My only request for Dan was to
not tell anyone on the team that I was going to be there to record the
entire process, and that no photo progress updates were to be shared with
them until the guys picked up the body. I planned on having cameras set up
in the shop to capture their initial reactions to the finished piece. This
was going to be uber-fun.
DeLaney went the extra mile and made a day trip to Eastlake in mid-April to
help layout the design on the body. Crook and Stipich took it from there
and had the body painted and delivered to Dan's shop by May 2nd. From then
on, Dan graciously allowed me to shadow him with video cameras rolling for
eight days, following every methodical and detailed brush stroke from start
to finish. While DeLaney worked his magic, we reminisced over the days
when we looked forward to getting magazines that featured the newest
rolling works of art by the hands of rock star sign painters like Tom
Stratton, Kenny Youngblood, Glen Weisgerber, and Nat Quick to name a few.
Each individual's unique style fueled DeLaney's passion and appreciation
for the industry that he's been able to make a living at for nearly 40
years. Believe it or not, for all the cars that DeLaney has lettered in
that time, this was his first Vega funny car body to hand letter and it was
deeply personal to him to get it right. It was a throwback to his teen
years when he dreamed of owning a paint shop like Don Kirby's in
Bellflower, CA, a time when funny car bodies would be lined up on 55 gallon
drums outside awaiting their own pair of magic hands.
With the exception of pinstripe details, which were expertly handled by
Terry Buczak, DeLaney knocked out a stunning hand lettered tribute to an
era of drag racing that is burned into the memory banks of purists far and
wide. It's more than right, Dan. It's hitting on all eight.

NHRA Jr Dragster and Hayabusa Dragster Barona Drag Strip 12-1-2012
NHRA jr dragster at barona drag strip The Junior Dragster is a scaled
version of the top fuel dragster. Also known as the Jr dragster, it reaches
speeds of up to 85 mph. The cars were created in New Zealand and first
raced there in 1988. There is a league called the JDRL (Junior Drag Racing
League). The JDRL is a division of the NHRA, which consists of two
different dragster classes, traditional Jr. Dragster having a wheelbase
between 90-150 inches and the larger Jr. Comp dragster being 150-190
inches. Junior drag racers may choose to participate in programs run by the
NHRA, IHRA, or at an unsanctioned facility. Drivers may be male or female
and must be at least eight years of age, and be no older than 20 years on
December 31 of the competition year (a driver who turns 18 on January 2 is
permitted to race in the class until December 31 of the year in question).
Dragsters also compete in a different class of racing. This different class
is called Outlaw. This class is run to the 330 ft cone of the racing
surface. The class runs heads-up on a 4-tenths pro tree. Usually this class
is a qualified field, so the teams have to give it all they can just to
make the field. While different series rules vary, the main principle is
the same. The different series restrict engine combinations and weight
packages so that the cars do not exceed the 4.10 time NHRA says is the
fastest junior dragsters can run to the 330 ft. legally.

motorcycle made by Suzuki since 1999. It immediately won acclaim as the
world's fastest production motorcycle, with a top speed of 188 to 194 miles
per hour (303 to 312 km/h).

132702 / 1975 Chevrolet Vega Cosworth
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/7ls72l8
This all original 1975 Cosworth is one of 2,061 cars produced for the '75
model year, has only 291 actual miles, and has all of the rare and
difficult to find Cosworth Vega parts right where the factory installed
Assembled at GMs historic Lordstown, Ohio manufacturing facility, and
finished in standard issue 1975 Cosworth Vega code 19 black acrylic
lacquer, CV number 1094 is every bit as clean today as when it left the
showroom floor. The car has remained in all original, non-repaired
condition thanks in small part to GMs anti-rust improvements, and in large
part to immaculate maintenance and care given by loving owners throughout
its life. Today, it features an old school factory appeal that you just
can't find in its restored peers.
With 110 horsepower and a 6,500 RPM
redline, the Cosworth Vega was one of the hottest performing cars available
in 1975 and featured a hand-built mill from GM's Tonawanda engine plant
that was individually signed by its builder on a sticker that occupies the
cam cover. Measuring in at 122 cubic inches, and wearing a correct partial
VIN of 40392, this Vegas DOHC inline-four features sturdy forged aluminum
pistons, a heat-treated forged steel crankshaft and forged connecting rods
that both reveal the engines racing ancestry and assure high performance
durability. To meet ever increasing US emissions standards, a custom
designed stainless steel Exhaust
header and Bendix electronic fuel injection with pulse-time manifold
injection, four injector valves, an electronic control unit (ECU), five
independent sensors and two fuel pumps were installed. Thanks to this
revolutionary engine, the Vega was the first Chevrolet car to feature
electronic fuel injection which warranted an HEI distributor for increased
spark and a heavy duty radiator for increased cooling.
At the bottom of this sophisticated Chevrolet, an original Saginaw 4-speed
manual transmission, which wears a correct 338835 casting number and a
correct 15U240392 partial VIN, sends power to an original 10 bolt rear end
that's packed full of stout 3.73 gears. Holding that sports car drivetrain
off the ground is an original F41 heavy duty suspension which includes a
'torque arm' rear end for optimum rear axle power control, larger rear
stabilizer bars, Vega GT springs and shocks, provisions for the Vega's
"fast Steer" option and front disc brakes. At the center of the car, an
original single pipe Exhaust system
snakes spent gases along the floorpan to a factory replacement muffler
which barks an exotic four cylinder growl through two polished stainless
tips. And at the corners of the car, 13 inch British-made, gold-painted
cast aluminum wheels spin correct BR70-13 Goodyear Custom Steelgard Radials
around chrome lug nuts and satin finished Chevrolet center caps.
Take a look inside this pristine Cosworth Vega and you'll find the typical
all business/no compromises black interior that these cars have built a
reputation for. The custom bucket seats, which are completely fresh and
display no signs of wear at all, nicely complement a 100% straight and
crack-free dash. Inside that dash, an engine-turned gold bezel houses a
Cosworth exclusive 8,000 RPM tachometer between a 120 MPH speedometer,
gauges for the engines vitals and a gold-plated plaque which is branded
with the cars 1094 build sequence number. Below those gauges, a correct
radio delete sits next to the cars original heater/defroster; and in front
of those gauges, a familiar black steering wheel is centered behind a blue
Cosworth Vega horn button emblem. At the floor, the booted shifter for the
Borg Warner T10 transmission springs up from like-new black carpet which is
protected by color-keyed floor mats. And at the roof, the cars original
mouse fur headliner stretches tightly around vinyl sun visors and a bright
courtesy lamp. The door panels, which look as good as new, are decorated
with attractive stainless trim and chrome handles for both the doors and
windows. And the hatch, which is lined with the same black carpet as the
floor boards, appears to have never been used.
If you're a serious collector who's been searching for something rare and
unique, here's your opportunity to own one of the nicest and most
underappreciated cars on the planet! Call, click or visit

Friday night drag racing invasion of the Chevrolet vega at racelegal three
very fast Chevrolet vega's.RaceLegal, the safer and sanctioned track
alternative to illegal street racing, was developed with one goal in mind.
Saving the needless loss of young lives to an illegal street race gone bad
is RaceLegal’s mantra. To that end we have been remarkably effective. The
concept was one of providing a youth oriented environment in a neutral and
centrally located location where we could replicate a street environment,
but with safer and sanctioned conditions that insured the safety of our
racers and their fans. The under pinning is one of skillfully redirecting
illegal street racing behavior to the safer and sanctioned sport of drag
racing in a youth oriented setting. As sated above, the results are
