    I don't know if you've tried buying a iron bumper Vega, but from what I've seen they bring a lot of money, especially the station wagons. Same with the Chevy luv pickup, I thought I could buy either one of them for a couple hundred bucks but I guess not anymore

    The iron bumper Vega's had very similar styling to the spit bumper Camaro's. A friend of mine had a GT station wagon in high school. I always thought I wanted one to put a small block in. It would have been a very fun car. Now, an aluminum 5.3 LS would probably be perfect. Too bad they've all been used up and/or scrapped. Like you, Seth, I remember the days when you could hardly give one away.

    My late mother in law had a 76 Astre. It was a neat little car though a gutless wonder. It would run down the interstate all day at 65 mph even though it took it a couple of miles to get going that fast.

    Thin??? Darn near transparent!
