The Prodigal Son returns.
Posted by: unsafe62 ()
Date: February 24, 2019 05:26PM

Hello, some of you may remember me...Shawn Sylvester from Charles City, Iowa...former owner of a 62 black on red Monza and 63 red on red Spyder.
Anywho:
After losing my Corvair to the bank due to a girlfriend I had that thought giving her money all the time was more important than making payments on a loan I had against my 63 Spyder. I decided to take a break from her and the Corvair world for a few years. well new fiance' later and a renewed craving for driving an EM again has brought me back to the forum to relearn that which I may have forgotten and help out where possible in the process. Hoping to find and own a wagon or a lakewood this time around.

Getting too old for 'Projects'. Would like to, some day, to purchase something that is "Done" rather than "Oh, it just needs 'this and that'. Keep going to SHADES classic cars and, someday, might just pull the trigger! smileys with beer

Thanks "flamingchariots" but unlike Stitch I'm looking for a project that needs a lot of work to keep me occupied and at a bit of a lower price, plus a lot closer would be nice. Doesn't have to run or even have the engine/trans, as long as the body and floor isn't shot and fairly complete. I'm sure I'm crazy but I'm looking for more in the $1500.00 and under range.

Hey Stich, small world. Hawaii was my home town too during the 60s and 70s. That's where I was introduced to the Corvair and have never been the same since.
