Just Chevrolet Vega Drag Racing Barona Drag Strip . So many Chevrolet vega
drag racing on the 1/8 mile.The Chevrolet Vega is a subcompact automobile
that was produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors (GM) from
1970 to 1977. 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. Variants included

for a range of problems related to its engineering, reliability,
safety, propensity to rust, and engine durability. Despite a series
of recalls and design upgrades, the Vega's problems tarnished both its own
as well as General Motors' reputation. Production ended with the 1977 model
