Don't quote me on this but if my memory serves me correct, this was the first Pro Stock Vega ever built (preceding the Grump's by a few months).

Speaking of the Grump, here's the all-dominating Vega that won him $250,000 in the 1972 drag racing season. That was a hell of a lot of money back then. It is equivalent to $1,489,397.16 in today's dollars
with the car being nowhere as expensive to build and maintain as today's Pro Stockers which are nothing more than pseudo-funny cars compared to the cars that originally inhabited this class.

While we're on the subject of Pro Stock Vegas, this is one of the prettiest and trickest ever built. Just to give you younger guys an idea of just how far ahead of their time these cars
were back then, if you pulled into the staging lanes with this car today it would not look out of place. Put a modern hood scoop, wheelie bars and racing wheels on it and no one would be the wiser.

Sux that the photographers don't get their proper credit instead of Getty.
