Funny you should mention that, when I posted the comment about a Vega
I wasn't really thinking but it must have been in the back of my mind, I
always wanted to build a v8 vega,
I'm old enough to remember when they were on the road. I once purchased an
excellent magazine out of southern CA that had feature articles & pics on
conversions, and other articles on how to do it....I wanted to start with a
put in a small block, paint it midnight blue...then one day I drove by a
driveway that had
an orange '68 Camaro RS for sale in the driveway, I bought that and it's
been camaros ever since!
However, if times get bad enough for me, maybe I'll sell my camaro and buy a
nice vega shell and go for it!
Once again someone went the gooff troop way about replacing a rusted
out truck body. Which is how alot of these conversions start. All of
the Orginal S.U.V. classes of vehicals rust out badly. Often leaving a
good frame & driveline behind. When the amount of drivelines & frames
exceeds the number of bodies availible, some how idiots get involved.
Instead of being idiotic about it, there are thousands of Pre-Four
Wheel Drive years trucks that could be installed on those frames. I am
looking for a Clean 20's thru pre war Ford or Chevy truck cab (with
title) for such a project. Since I will eventially have a 89 GMC S-10
4x4 frame in the excess frame catagory, with a SBC, and all the running
As I have said before A man (or woman) with a brain & a plan would make
a AWD stock ride height or lowered F-body. Then they could put some
major power to the ground, even while turning.
Cars should be Cars, Trucks should be Trucks.
