I spoke to Jim Wangers about Vega Nomads several years ago, He owned Motertown, that was the name of the conversion company that did the conversions. Unfortunatly he is more of an Idea/$$$ guy, and dosn't remember much about the smaller progects they did at the time. He is now 80+ years old, and his memory isn't what it was. Motortown also did the Mustang Cobra II conversions, the Pontiac Ca-Am, Dodge Aspen R/T, Volare Plymouth Road Runner.
Page 270 of his Memior book Glory Days ISBN 0-8376-0207-6 has a black and white pic, and a caption that reads.
"In an atempt to hype one of the first small station wagons, Chevrolet's Vega mini-Nomad program was quite successful. Note special window fillers simulating big Nomad styling, and the skid strips on the rear tail gate. In 1977, Chevy dealers, particularly in the southwest, sold several thousand of these."
Unfortunatly the text is mostly related to his Promotions for Pontiac, so there is no more text on the Vega Nomad. Motor town was a Large conversion company, and a car was sent to them before it was delivered to the Dealers. I hope that helps some.
