1974 Chevy Vega - Darth Vega

Since The Days Of Grumpy Jenkins, Ed Bruce Yearned For A Tubbed-Out, Monstrously Overpowered Vega. Now He's Built One.

With the car all put together, Ed's friend Mark Tyner did the finishing bodywork, then sprayed the Vega in two-stage PPG black. It rolls on Weld Aluma Star 15-inch wheels all around, with Mickey Thompson Sportsman rubber out back to help the car hook. Inside, Kirkey race seats covered in tweed keep driver and passenger comfortable, and the only music option available in the Vega is from the thumpin' porcupine motor between the fenders.

Since its completion, Ed has loved every minute of driving and showing the car, and appreciates all the help Mark Tyner, his son Richard, nephew Willie, and others gave him to build such a great street machine. The fact that Ed can cruise to the track, fire off a 9-second pass, then cruise on home makes the Vega that much more fun.
