If there was ever a car that is way cooler modified than stock, it’s the Chevrolet Vega. From the factory, they were fragile econoboxes from a bygone era, with leaky engines and questionable craftsmanship. But they were small, rear wheel drive, and came in a few different body styles that were surprisingly easy on the eyes. And gearheads soon learned that a cheap, broken Vega could house a honking V8 for all sorts of automotive shenanigans. But one thing that the engineers at GM probably didn’t anticipate is the backyard shadetree mechanics that thought that they would be way cooler with some ground clearance and four wheel drive.
The Vega Trar is a rare gift from redneck Valhalla, and every time we see one, we celebrate it. And we’ve found another one. This time, it’s based on the wagon version of the Vega, and has a serious 70’s vibe you have to see to believe. And yes, it’s for sale! It’s missing its drivetrain at the moment, but according to the ad, “all the hard work is done”. Let’s have a look!
So, there you have it. It’s a Vega Trar, sans drivetrain, but it has etched windows and a SWEET mural of a badass wizard manipulating time and space on the hood. This work of art deserves to be saved. The seller is asking $3500, which is a small price to pay for such a majestic beast. It’s a Vega, a 4×4 Trar, and a 70’s custom all at the same time! Just toss in the drivetrain from that K10 or old CJ5 that’s rotting away in the yard, finish that interior, and blast The Wizard by Black Sabbath on repeat for the rest of eternity as you drive over every type of terrain imaginable. Mr. Wizard has saved many over the years, and now it’s his turn to be saved.
