A vehicle manufactured by Chevrolet from 1971-1977. They looked similar to the Camaros of that era. They were available as hatchbacks or station wagons. They have a penchant for doing well at the drag races (that is, if you know what you're doing). Most that you will see nowadays are fiberglass or are steel that are goobered up with Bondo.
My dad's '73 Vega will wipe your little rice burner right off the fuckin' track, bitch.
