1976 Chevrolet Vega with a custom installed 400 c.i.d. V8. I spotted this car on the PA turnpike near New Stanton,PA. It was being towed home to Ohio after a visit to an action in Atlantic City, New Jersey. I don't think it was a true GT but it was a really nicely maintained example of a rare classic 70's Vega.
