The whole idea of this display of vehicles is the "Day 2" concept; highlighting the modifications done to performance cars as soon as they were purchased. Back in the day, a musclecar buyer didn't wait for the warranty to run out or the loan to be paid off before making upgrades for both performance and looks. Wheels, tires, shifter, headers, carb, gears, you name it, it was done right away.
The orange Vega shown is supposed to be a real Yenko V8 conversion. "butchered"? No. Upgraded? Oh, yeah.
