|Motor Trend magazine granted the honor of the 1971 Car of the Year award to the Chevy Vega. Its smaller size, good performance for the low entry-level price of around $2,500, and a strong sell from Chevrolet’s then-division manager John Delorean, made it a good choice for the American car buyer. At the time, the automotive market was in upheaval due to gas prices, and the Vega’s four-cylinder motor and smart styling it proved very appealing. Despite many quality issues over the seven years of Vega production, the model sold well over a million units. In GT form, the then-innovative all-aluminum block with cast iron head put out around 110 hp. The F-41 handling package also included on the GT model adds to what is already a nimble car with a strong power-to-weight ratio. The Vega’s looks were always its strongest suit though, and thankfully, those aesthetics have aged well.|
