1976 Chevrolet Vega with a 400 V8
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.

Bad start, car ran like crap, I lost, but it was in car footage!
This year is going to be sooo much faster than last.
Vega is now running GM LS based motors doing 8's. Check my entire channel

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.
