We are going to use the rear end and front spindles from the s10 for the bigger brakes and 5 lug conversion and we might rob other things from it like power brakes etc

I do remember reading that the 4wd drive is wider so i wrote rear wheel drive(2wd) and i wrote down 4 cylinder because the gear ratios are closer to vega

I mis-read your note as AWD.

I double checked and it looks like "AWD" to me as well! I hate when my "Right Brain" conflicts with my "Left Brain" Too! Harry :D :lol: :bang:

We bought another vega. This is the 9th vega my dad has owned and we found it on craigslist for really cheap. It still runs just had to change the water pump and fuel pump. We plan on using this in the lemons rally this august and then use it for parts for the orange one. Maybe save the back and make a little trailer out of it.

If the quarter panels are in good shape please don't cut it up. I know that us wagon fans are few and far between but body parts are getting impossible to find.
