About “Vega Wagon”

I picked this car up as a roller in '09. In my two car garage, it has taken me lots of hours, blood, sweat, & tears to get it in the shape it is today. The whole point of this project was to see if I could build a car that is dependable enough to drive anywhere, be consistant enough to win at the dragstrip, and at the same time look great, & be 100% NHRA/IHRA legal. I drive it to the track every weekend and it is currently doing very well with an 11-3 round record this year. It turns heads eveywhere I go and my son (6) loves it when I pick him up from school in it (the teachers, not so much....). It retains it's original, complete, interior and also has a great sound system. For power, it has an aluminum headed Vortec 350, TH400, Ford 9", and is a solid 12 second street car.

Update 8/30/11: This car just clenched First Place for Team Bunker Hill 2011 in the Sportsman Class NHRA Summit Racing Series. That qualifies it for the Division 3 ET Finals VP Race Fuels Race of Champions race to be held in Indy on 9/16/11.
