My first car was an old junky Vega that me and my brother shared, we painted it (rustoleum) red and put a black racing stripe on the hood just for fun It only had the four cylinder motor and top speed was about 85. We drove it back and forth to highschool and parked it on the hill so we could roll start it if need be
my dad has a 1977 vega coupe with the same paint job. it used to have a factory 4 cylinder in it. he put a monza spyder chassis under it with a 305 v8 and a 350th tranny. its a loud car. it was built for racing. but an old enemy of my dad found where we live and he poured sand in the oil. now we wanna drop a 350 vortech in her. her name is thunder. my dad got her in the 80's. he used her as an outlaw street racing car and he only lost once to a monza spyder with a 427. he got the vega at a junkyard. they had pulled the 4 banger for scrapping cause it was a aluminum block.
