Expensive Engineering That Never Developed To Its Full Potential — Having owned 2 of these special limited production cars they were so much better than a stock or GT Vega. Much faster better handling nice paint scheme black with gold wheels and stripes. Lots of great features such as stainless steel tuned exhaust header, electronic fuel injection, dual overhead cam engine that would wind to 7000 rpm. Add a posi and 5 speed trans you had a fun little car. This one needs work to get back to full service but a little tlc and it will make the car shows again.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Nice looking little car, hatchback handy for hauling larger items, nimble and good in traffic, good fuel economy

Cons: parts getting hard to find, people think its just a Vega

The Little Vega That Could — All you have to do is drive one and you'd like to have one. Very stout 4-cylinder, in stock form over 1 HP per Cu. In., with minor tuning mods (re-indexed cam gears, 2 1/2" exhaust) can put out much more. I have three.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Limited production, only 3508 produced in '75 & '76.  EFI (in '76-rare), twin overhead cams, 4 valves per cylinder.  With the right tuning it screams.

Cons: Certain special parts are getting harder to find.  Tires, being 13", on special factory mags, are becoming hard to find.
