The Restoration of Veney's Vega
« on: January 22, 2014, 06:03:24 AM »
I am running a piece detailing the restoration of this famous car by ex-pat Brits Pat and Linda Neal.  The chassis work has been completed and the car is being shaken down in injected form before the blower is added.  Work has started on restoring the body which is in pretty poor shape.  You can read the two page article at http://www.theaccelerationarchive.co.uk/features/veneys/vega_01.html

Glenn,

  I really enjoyed reading the resto of the Veny's Vega, but, where's the rest of it?  Do you know if it got finished?  I looked thru there site but nothing but the two pages. :( :( :(.  I saw this car many times and always rooted for it...would love to finish reading the build and final outcome.

John

PS, or anyone else that knows about it...
