I think it'd be cool to see the work done by the "head guys" (Michael, Tom, Ken, etc.). I'm personally fascinated by the quench welding, bigger valve fitting and even Singh groove enhancements.

Hi Everybody,

It's February 8. Registration has been open 10 days. So far, only 8 people registered (including me) and we still need volunteers to make presentations.

It's still very early in the game, but it would be great if more folks would show interest. Please make your intentions known. Here is the link to the online registration web page:

[www.corvair.org]

The dates are April 5 & 6. On the PCG website, you'll also see another page that talks about the workshop, and you can download an event guide with details about hotel, travel, etc.

I will not be able to make it as I have previous commitments on the Fridays in April. I really wanted to come as I have not been to Decatur since the 70's when I drove a drag boat on the lake. I miss the smell of the soybean processing plant.

I have attended 2 workshops and thoroughly enjoyed both. It was also good to have some face time with old friends and new that I have made in the Corvair world.

I presented my first EFI there and drove my car there (how better to talk about dependability?) I am planning to make it next year... its a long drive from down south.

Good luck guys.

There will be several people from Kansas City coming, including long time Corvair racers Charlie Clark and Didk Berger. Looking forward to it!

Lord willing and the creek don't rise, I'm going to make an effort to make it there. Just hope something last-minute doesn't arise to derail it for me.

Also glad it's getting some much needed publicity, so more people in the general Corvair community can know about it and attend. Hope it makes a difference for the event.

2019 Corvair Performance Workshop. April 5 & 6, 2019

Good news! It’s February 18 and 28 people have registered so far.

If you’re not among them, please visit the website of the Performance Corvair Group and register online. It’s easy! [www.corvair.org]

And if that doesn’t work, please send an email with your contact info to me – redbat01@verizon.net

Why register now? We need a headcount so we can arrange table setups and catering for the lunch on Saturday.

ATTENTION! Here’s your opportunity to become famous! We still need speakers to do share information about their Corvair performance modifications, whether they be street, strip, track, or off-road. And we need vendors to sell their wares! Let us know if you can help!

Alan, maybe you can get Ken Arnold to talk about how he built his rear mounted V-8 coupe and his mid mounted V-8 rampside. Now that he has sold them maybe he has time to talk about the details. Jim

Hi Jim Stukenborg, Are you talking about Ken Arnold of Riverdale, Georgia? If so, I can get in touch with him. Thanks for the suggestion! Al Lacki

And I was turned down flat out as a presenter because what I was going to talk about concerned automatics. Ken, you need to look at the last few posts on this thread: OT Friday humor

Hi 67airvair(Mark Corbin),

I don't know what happened in past years, but you are on the agenda this year to do a presentation on floor shifter conversions for Powerglide 'Vairs.

I'm hoping this year's Workshop will include presentations (and vendors) who specialize in all kinds of performance modifications - street, strip, track, autocross, off-road, Baja, whatever!

So far, 33 people have registered and that's great! But we're in desperate need of folks to do presentations and vending!

Al
