    Cool pics Vega's being loaded for delivery

    An unusual mode of transport as Chevy Vega's are loaded vertically on freight trains for distribution to the dealer network...

    Wow! Never thought they moved them like this, makes you wonder what kinds of mishap happened on the rail trip...

    I wondered about that too. In the first pic it looks as though someone has just driven the car onto the ramp and in the last pic two more are waiting their turn.

    Then again, I wonder about it when I see new car transporters on the motorway, especially the one car that dangles over the cab.

    Good point Al and one that I'd failed to think about , I guess they must've had all fluids in then !!! . Is it any wonder it was billed as GM's worst ever car with lots of early rust outs , heavy oil consumption and general poor build quality .

    It's weird as I was taking the missus out last week and as I turned the corner at the end of my road parked opposite was a black /gold stripes Vega GT , I had to do a double ... make that triple ... take as it appeared to be in fairly good original driver condition , never seen it before or since , anybody know of it in the B'mth area ? .
