Very unique, not sure I have ever seen anything like that. Pretty neat.

LOL,
Vega "Backs into Chop Saw". Looks unprofessionally finished!
We really need a states license plate advertised and in your face?
If a Vega is to be customized, at least it should look somewhat smooth.
Just my opinion.

Vegastre, I would consider your car, customized front and back, very smooth!

I kinda like the bumper... I think it (the car) needs more color. Too much orange. Needs a GT stripe or something

I like it a lot. I assume it has slit bumper on the front too. Car is really smooth. No side markers, filled rear hatch vent, flush door handles, no side mirrors, de-chromed window trim, and smoothed under side of the hood, with no prop rod. There was a lot of body work done to make this car look so plain. I would like to see the front.

I did find a pic of the front. Looks like a Camaro grill.

I've seen pics of it somewhere else , the sunlight pics do make it look plane compared to the pic under the lights , looks real good , not sure if I like the back bumber but it's his car and I'm sure he likes it and thats realy all that counts .

I would like to see a pic with the hood closed before I decide if I like the Camaro grill, or not. It does seem to stick out a bit. Looks like the regular grill, and not the rally sport grill. I think I mite like the rally grill better.
