When the Vega was introduced in the early 70s, General Motors predicted it would sell hundreds of thousands each year. But the ill-fated car never met those lofty expectations, plagued by poor reliability and a number of highly publicized design problems, including carburetor fires, an overheating engine and premature rusting.
One innovation of the original Vega was that it was designed to be shipped vertically with its nose down. For example, the battery had fill caps at the back to prevent leakage during transit. Special rail cars known as "Vert-A-Pac" cars were built with hangers to carry the first Vegas to market in this vertical arrangement.
