1972 Vega GT Build

Postby KZVEGA » Mon Dec 09, 2013 12:59 am

Hello all, kind of new to the forum. Lurked here for a little while and finally found some time to post the progress on my project. so first I'll start with a little bit of info on the car, it's a 1972 Vega that I acquired from my cousin this past July and me and him have been working on it together. Plans are to make a nice drag car that's still a bit streetable. For the powertrain I have a 383 short block and a TH350 that will make its way into the car sometime, but for now need to finish all the fab work suspension and steering. Anyway on to the progress pics.
