Car And Driver Vega GT #0 winner - circa 1975

Postby vegavairbob » Sat Jun 23, 2012 11:24 am

That's right H-Body fans! A Vega GT won the Car and Driver's SS/Sedan Challenge III. Chevy's Vega ad campaign launched for the 1973 model year "See what its like to drive a winner" referenced the car's numerous awards. History shows the phrase had a double meaning.
Patrick Bedard, C&D editor/Vega #0 driver said, "The lone Vega outran every single Opel, Colt, Pinto, Datsun, Toyota and Subaru on the starting grid." "...You have to admire a car like that. If it wins, it must be the best, never mind all of the horror stories you hear, some of them from me."
