New Member!! Need a ride before I buy! Santa Cruz, Ca. area.

New member from Santa Cruz , ca . Considering buying a 65 corsa it is an out of state car and not running . looking for someone in my local area to give me a ride in theirs .... as a passenger. For a short ride to see if I want to proceed .this car has a particular history that makes me interested. Monterey ,ca or San Jose , ca are both close for me to drive to . Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks
Robert Oram

Mel Raven, in San Jose, has a really nice '66 Corsa and he might be willing to give you a feel of the ride quality. His # is 408-267-8164 and he's also a Corvair mechanic.

I agree with everything posted here. Lots of Corvair folks in San Jose. Mel's Vair Mart is a long time Corvair mechanic. You can get a free ride to his shop in an early turbo Corvair from Santa Cruz. The only thing not mentioned but you will soon find is CORVAIR PEOPLE ARE THE GREATEST. Just another reason to own one IMO.
