The Pinto was first, then came the Vega and finally the Chevette. I had a buddy that had a nice Vega, it had a blown 427 big block in it. The motor was half of the car, lol. It was quick, very quick.
The Ford Pinto was a subcompact manufactured by the Ford Motor Company for the North American market, first introduced on September 11, 1970, and built through the 1980 model year.
The Chevrolet Vega was a subcompact car sold from 1971 through 1977.
Production of the Chevette in the US started in late 1975 for the 1976 model year.
