1971 Chevy Vega Commercial - Worst Car Ever Made in the USA in Modern Times
The Chevy Vega was built to compete with the likes of VW, Toyota and Datsun
in the USA. It was Chevy's first Sub Compact Car. Although there is
always some debate. This car is considered by many as being one of or
actually, the Worst Car Ever Made. It's very subjective. It was heavily
recalled by GM for prolbems, the alluminium engines warped, the front cowl
sections rusted thru in a short period of time. The overall build quality
was very suspect. The Ford Pinto had some Safety issues or at least a bad
reputation earned rightly or wrongly with the placement of the Gas Tank
and the AMC Gremlin had detractors to it's styling but was reliable car,
but the Vega was real junk.

Leaf-Blower Supercharging a 1978 Chevrolet Monza Spyder! - Roadkill Episode 16
On this episode of Roadkill, it's fun with Leaf Blowers. Experts on the
Internet said it would never work. That's never stopped Freiburger and
Finnegan, and this time on Roadkill the guys put the theory to the test:
can hardware-store leaf blowers supercharge an engine and make power? Step
one was buying a '78 Monza Spyder with a 305 V8 and a four-speed stick.
Step two was to take it to the shop of HOT ROD Drag Week racer Jeff Lutz to
tune it up, swap the engine to a 350, Dyno test it with five leaf
blowers, and do a whole bunch of needless burnouts. Step three was to drive
the Monza to Willmington, Ohio, for the East Coast Timing Association's
Ohio Mile event, a standing-mile race where they'd find out if leaf-blower
power adds up to more speed in the real world. The outcome? Who really
cares? Because on Roadkill, it's always about the adventure. And more
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
