It's was a Gold Spinner winner in 06...so not your average 72 Vega! BTW in 05 I was offered a 69 x 33 and 72 BB Cheyenne short bed loaded with 45k actual miles...both restored for my 1 of a kind Vega!  Guess you could say I really did and still do like the Vega. Thanks guys for the kind words!

Funny,
I have no allegiance to any one car or brand for that matter. I am more of a classic vehicle whore: Ford, Chevy, (Mopar in the works), Volkswagen, Harley Davidson, Triumph, BSA....and those have just been whats affordable. There are a few british makes, and italian cars on my (bucket list) to own still.

Rick,
I've sent you a PM with a link to The Roaring Season about the Vega Vert-A-Pac.
Thought you might find it interesting.

Thanks but the wagon is to small for hauling much of anything other than"butt" It has a 4 cylinder with 390 cfm holley and a header hooked up to a opel 4 speed and a shifter that felt like a stick in a 5 gal bucket of mud when shifting it! The turbo vega would run circles around the Yenko! I still like my bikes better than a vega!

The only vegas which ever got a second glance from me were the Cosworth Vegas of '77 or so, and well set up V8 Vegas at drag strips (of course, nothing about them other than the body was 'vega').   Talking about your sloppy vega shifter.... the Ford equivalent of the Vega was the Pinto.  During the late '70's gas crunch, my car pooling buddy bought a cheap pinto to drive to work..  one day he shifted and the entire shifter handle came off in it hands..  he was holding it up wondering what to do for the next gear..  ;D
