Speaking of "stretched" Vegas, this is my favorite local racecar; I was offered this car about 8-10 years ago as a rolling chassis for $5000. AND I COULDN'T AFFORD IT AT THE TIME! Now I could, but the new owner has $20,000+ into it and it's not for sale.

I think the white Monzamino looks the best out of all of them the box and back of the cab on that one looks good and not choppy like the other ones do everything has a nice clean fit to it and I do like the way the cover fits over the box on the white one the tan Vegamino ain't bad ether excpet the front bumper looks kinda funky

Just my owen opinon

The tan vega is actually a Nomad wagon photo shopped. Plus its a 76 with a early vega bumper and lower valance mounted to the nose.

Yea I did not know that until I looked at the picture again and notice Nomad on the wing I wander why he put the 71-73 bumper bumper guards and valance on it instead of the 76 bumper and valance back on it. :think:

HEY , That looks real good! But it might just be to close to the back of your head when your trying to get in & out? Do you think its in need of a little longer bed area? Maybe 8 inches or so would help. I bet the rearend would be on the lite side things for traction. LOOKS GOOD anyway. I'm thinking about putting her up for sale soon. Maybe i'll get what what i have in it back this time. I'm looking for a nice cb750 mid 70's honda scooter& cash. To trade. or just cash. thank's for the photoshop! gary littlevega.

I think it's looking close to the Dodge Rampage.

Gary, your wagon looks nice!

The wheels really help set the tone, it looks like an late 70's V8 Vega build. SWEET!

If you decide to sell it please be sure to post it on this forum first..... yeah i know many of us on here already have too many h-bodies, but I bet someone here will grab it !

I know there is something way wrong with a 4x4 vega, but 6-7 years ago there was an old barn not far from me, my brother drove by it daily and saw a 4x4 wagon pulled out one day...I spent weeks driving by to see if anyone was out. Didn't want to upset anyone by leaving a note on it, due to all the NO TRESPASSING signs everywhere. Never say anyone near the barn...one day it disappeared. I was pissed at myself and checked every junk yard around with hopes that it was there...no luck

Gary,

If I had the money I'd drive up there and take it off your hands. I think parts of it use to belong to me anyway. :lol:
