Re: Vega Stinger ad

I know what you guys mean. Yeah they look tough alright. To add to that there was about a stigma attached to Vegas back when they were current. In the '60s came economy cars like the Chevy II and the Corvair. The full-sizes were king. Then comes the Vega, GM's answer to foreign competition. That was considered a notch below the economy cars. Then they had problems with the cast iron block/aluminum head design which was a new thing. The name Vega seemed to come with a chuckle for a lot of people. Many not considered GM's best idea. But... they were actually a great foundation for a small block RWD street machine.

My friend ran a Vega for years at the track. I watched that car transform into an 8 second machine.

The notchbacks had a different appeal, but then there were the Euro sedans such as BMW 1600s or 2002s or the Japanese Datsun 510s. This guy did one in the Euro tradition and I really like it

Re: Vega Stinger ad

If Chevy had used the all-iron 153 CI 4-cylinder, you'd probably see still Vegas running around these days; at least a few, anyway. If you've ever seen the head off, you'd see the problem. The water jacket completely surrounds the cylinders, which are siamesed together. When the engine overheats, the aluminum shifts and you have a blown head gasket. This generally happened at 55k miles, give or take a few k, and almost invariably it was from lack of cooling system maintenance.
