  • Vehicle Overview

    A bit of info on the 1973 Vega. It was a turned into a Drag car in 1976 (ran high 8`s in the 1/4 mile)by the original owner and was upgraded 3 times before it was converted to a Pro street. In 2013 when I bought the Vega we did further modifications to make it street/strip legal(ran 10.20`s in street trim). Originally I said I would only paint the car and then one thing lead to another and out came VEGABOND 3 years later.. Below is just a few of the modifications that we did to the Vega.
