Bill, you made me grin,..... thats a plus this AM. Welcome to the Lounge Dad. We must be about the same age. Vega Eh? I had a friend who'* Dad bought him a new 72 Vega GT for graduation. He took the "GT" a little to seriously and we spent a couple weekends bolting every aftermarket add on he could find. They actually made headers and a 4 barrel high rise for that 4 banger. Long story short. We took it to the local track, he looked cool burning the oversized rear tires off, had one hell of a launch, we cheered, engine siezed. His Dad spent an afternoon cuffing him on the head finding the stock parts we had scattered throughout the garage. The stealership actually bit the "I hit 3 rd gear passing a truck going 70 and it froze up story.
