TOTALED!!! well folks the vega is out of circulation now,, I slid into a fence with a concrete lower section about 3 feet high,, it creased the entire pass side front to back,, I have lots of stuff for sale,, pm me with your needs,, if I have it and it's good I will sell,, right now the dash pad is on ebay and the front seats are on facebook marketplace,,I can't thank everyone here for all your help on this long build,, I only got to enjoy it for 3800 miles.. I am so sad about this, but cars can be replaced..Thanks again tinker

Tinker Patients! Your Ok Right? Another shell can be found, still quite a few Vega HB's out there [more than Monza's near me it seems anyway] I don't think I would bail now unless it had become time for a change. Are you willing to share "what the F :censored: :cuss: K went wrong. Glad your Ok either way, Stay in touch with us would you? The place just won't be the same with you! Harry

Tinker, sorry to hear that. I agree with Harry, if you haven't decided on a new and different path, give it some time, h-bodies are hard to get fully out of your system and you already have many of the parts to put another one together.

That's nothing half a Vega couldn't fix. Maybe you can find one that has been messed up on the driver's side.
I would just mothball it for a year or so and see what shakes out of the grape vine. A lot of guys do that unintentionally. :lol:

I agree with the others, keep it. Another car will be around the corner and all the conversion work should bolt in. The body and paint would be your biggest expense.
