    The list is meant to COMPARE different Vega's performance and show how power to weight ratio and transmission/axle ratios affect 0-60/qtr mile times.
    There are 6 cars within the 12 sec. range. Automatics are slow and are at bottom of list. Cars are listed by fastest 0-60 time even if one is quicker than another in qtr. mile time.
    Note: Road & Track's times are usually 1-2 seconds longer than other magazine times. This is due to their heavier test weights: equipment when testing is usually 200 lbs. Road & Track was only used if the car wasn't tested by any other magazine. If a model with exact engine/trans/axle/ was tested by multiple magazines, the one with the best 0-60 time is listed.
