    That's a sharp looking car!

    I have to assume there's a V8 shoe-horned into the engine bay because those rear wheels need something besides an aluminum 4 banger to turn them.

    The Z28 emblem on the grill is a unique conversation piece at car shows.

    Mom had a 74 vega with a 4 speed LOL, I always liked the front end. I was imaging the emblem as Z24, GM had some model, was it a cavalier, that had a Z24 package, LOL, but ya any vega needs a V8, kind of like a flower needs rain.

    I like it, especially the rear flares. Owner has a sense of humor, too with the Z28 grille emblem.
    I have a horn shroud from a 71 Kingswood station wagon that I may use in my 71 just for laughs. Thanks, Doc!
    Although I have some deluxe Camaro ones, it would definitely go with the deluxe interior I plan on using.

    I had a tan 71 with a 151ci and a power glide. That little car took a few miles to wind out, but it would do 3 digits as long as there was no head wind.

    Edit, I was wrong...it was a 2.3L, 139ci

    I know a guy that has an all original vega wagon of that generation that may be coming up for sale soon. Cool looking little cars IMO.
