National Dragster

Not all that unusual to see a Vega in the NHRA National Dragster Magazine, but I've never seen one like this on the track before- And, yes, I was reading it in the "throne room"; lol. I said to myself "that El Camino looks shortened". Then "Wait; that's a VEGA!!"

The Vega/ElCamino is an interesting concept; all I know is that I'd never fit in this one. I'm somewhere between 6'0" and 6'2"(depending upon what convenience store I'm running out of).
OK, I admit I stole that line from Blue Collar comedian Ron White.
