Dan Furey developed this AAGT Vega.
|Engine||A highly modified 331ci small block engine was nestled in a tubular spaceframe. It also includied parts from TRW, Weaver Bros, Edelbrock, Crane, King Racing Engines and Holley. Cafe Cars built the tubular headers, while four 48mm downdraft Weber carburetors on a McKay manifold make up for the induction system. The rpm level was being watched out via a Jones mechanical tachometer, and the remainder were Stewart-Warner built.
|Chassis||Dan and his crew designed and built this tubular chassis, which featured unequal length front control arms, coil-over Carrera shocks and 12x15 Jongbloed wheels with Goodyear tires. The rear suspension included a set of coil-over Carrera shocks with a three point trailing link locating system for the live axle rearend. The front and rear brakes were modified Airheart units, and the rear wheels were 17inch wide Goodyear tires.
|Transmission||A Borg and Beck three disc clutch and a Hurst shifted Muncie M22 4speed transmission are included. A Lakewood housing surrounded the clutch and flywheel.
The Chevrolet Vega was a low cost machine, highly modified by Cafe Cars of Columbus, Ohio. Dan Furey would enter this car in some selected events, during the 1978-1980 period, mainly in the sprint events. His best result was an 8th place at Road Atlanta in 1980, starting from the back of the pack. He experienced a host of dnfs, as the car appeared difficult to sort out. In 1981, he switched to an even more radical car, which was dubbed the Furey MK1.
