Ouch? (sez Dave, owner of two Toro Corvairs).

Copy has some errors about the TransGo tranny mod. The TransGo was a basic shift kit mod. The switch-pitch torque converter was a factory converter that changed the stall speed electronically. My 66 Torovair has that feature.

Interesting where all those old FWD packages ended up. I met Bill Porterfield (famous Oldsmobile engineer) a few years ago when he asked to see my Toro Corvair. He is well known for all of his Toro conversion vehicles, especially the 78 Olds 442 where he put the same setup in the back end and won the Hot Rod Magazine Street Machine of the Year in 78. I saw that car outside of the Rodeway Inn in Indianapolis when I was still busing tables while in high school.

Its not the fact its a 500 cu in caddy with a toro. I had a caddy with the smaller 425 and it was great. Its the value of 911's like that is very high right now and that one looks really clean. I have a 911 and a v8 vair. Everything has its place, would way rather have a Toro vair then a Toro 911. Vair is far better suited to the weight increase and probably handles quite a bit better given the wheelbase..
