About Vegaman’s Garage
About me and my passion for cars
Give me a 5 car garage, a bedroom, bathroom and a kitchen and I'll be happy.
Pulling serious G's in my cousins 500 hp '69 Camaro got me hooked on speed, though I've loved hot rods since I was 7.
I now own a '95 Olds Aurora - (greatest engine detroit ever put out, the Northstar-- lots of power pound per pound.)
'71 Vega Station wagon - 350 engine and 200R tranny will soon hit the road. Speed, mileage and luxuries. I like to have my cake and eat it too.
69 Mercury Monterey - bought so I'd have a car to drive that does not feel the road, then loaned it (permanently) to my brother when his SUV was totaled.
'49 Dodge 1 ton Pick up. My grandad bought it brand new and paid cash. Now it's mine. Hope to work on it as soon as the Vega's running.
'48 Dodge 1 ton pick up. For parts and then maybe a rat rod to sell for $ to help make up for the Vega expenses.
'79 Honda Goldwing motorcycle - needs the engine rebuilt. I keep it because I'm the eternal optimist.
'78 Honda Goldwing - for parts.
I'll take a 1966 to 1971 car any day over a "new" car.
My first car
1969 Impalla Convertable.
Purple, with a white interrior and white top.
Lots of rust and a 350 V8. Never shoulda sold that one.
Car I wish I still had
1:My '72 Vega.
262 V8 from a Monza.
All power and luxury.
2:My '66 Pontiac Catolina-
It had a 400 cu in engine that could do low 14's in the quarter mile with a 2 barrel carb.
A great "sleeper"
My '71 Mercury Cyclone GT 351 Cleveland 4-barrel with a C-6 tranny. - Totaled out by a brain dead teenager. It still hurts.....
My dream car
Home made by ME. Something with twin turbos, a tube frame and a tilt front end. :-)E) hehehe

It's hard to believe, but.... After driving the car around for about 300 miles, adjusting the timing and carburetor, getting new clamps (and 8 more Qts of oil), to hold the oil cooler hoses on so they won't blow off the first time I shift down, (which was...

Filed under: 1972 Chevrolet Vega Station Wagon (Vega)
Been working on the Vega like a mad man for a while. Back is paying for it, (sore) but it will be worth it when I fire it up and hear the sweet sound of open headers disturbing the peace around here. ;-) hehehe. I have the engine almost ready now....
