Nope... Street and track.  The seat covers have padding and are actually pretty comfortable.

I won't be driving it cross country though.

lol. if you can stand to sit in the seats for more than 11 seconds, you have a potential grocery-getting car. :)

I've had track cars with bad 1-position seats. yes, they are fast. no, they are not comfortable even for sub-10 seconds. :o

it's looking good. keep it up. you're way ahead of me, i FINALLY found a fender after a month long nationwide search.

Here's a quick update.  This week I'm ordering all the parts to build the headers and exhaust all stainless.   :)  Custom built sway bar is on order.. probably a couple weeks out.

So the only thing remotely "Vega" is the sheet metal?

Correct.  The body is complete and original.  The factory floors and suspension severely limit the wheel/tire combination I want to run and the suspension wouldn't hold up to the driving that this thing is going to get.
