1971 Chevrolet Vega GT (Mountain Dew Car Pack)

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.
