The Vega was GM's first foray into the booming subcompact market spurned by the success of Japanese and German imports in the U.S. market. The cars were much smaller than the compact Nova, and featured styling that drew heavily from the second-gen Camaro. Four cylinder engines were standard. A performance version, known as the Cosworth Vega, was released in 1975, although the gains produced by the addition of a dual-cam engine were more or less strangled by the emissions equipment required to make the car smog compliant in the U.S. Rust is a major concern here, so be sure to look thoroughly.
