These put you in a very fast class. You better have a boatload of cash to even compete with the big bore cars.

Those sure look like the quarter panels from the GM IMSA-style body kit for the 1970's Chevy Monza 2+2 hatchbacks. Do they fit LM Corvairs too?

Search "DEKON Monza" for photos.

While they "look" like the Dekon Monza flares, these are one piece.
The Dekon flares are split to accommodate the door opening.
Corvair rear quarters are longer from wheel well to the door.
Definitely styled by, or after the Dekon fender though.

The GM quarter panels were shipped as 1 piece and it was up to the installer to cut them to fit. I was part of a team that installed the kit on a Buick Skyhawk street car.



It does look like these are longer behind the wheel opening than the GM kit.



Does anyone have photos of these flares on a LM?

I'm a big Buick Skyhawk fan, if you have any more information on the Show and Go Skyhawk please share! Always wondered what happened to the car, who was responsible for the graphics etc. Samurray3 I had contact with Ken Baker about eight years ago.

Ken Baker
Brian,
The "Show and Go" Skyhawk was actually the second Boy Scout project car. The first was a turbocharged V6 Skylark that was "discovered" by senior Buick management!!!When I was called in to explain what we had done...I ended up moving from head of the Experimental lab to head of Buick R&D and asked to put the motor in production. The next step was the Indy Pace Car using the motor. We took an uneven firing 90 degree v6 and boosted it over 20 inches on gasoline!!The day we had to commit to the Indy for the pace car we had the head of engine design come and watch a test run in the dyno. We had a lean backfire thru the carb and blew the air cleaner cover of the engine!! He bit the end of his pipe off and went back to his office. That afternoon I committed to the Chief engineer we would be race ready on time. We made it and made history doing it.Next step was the production turbo V6 regal and then the Grand National.The guy who was working on the Grand National with me brought it out one day looking like a NASCAR race car with emblems all over it!! We hooted on him so bad that I told him to black everything out---I wanted the car to be the "ultimate sleeper"!! The rest is history!!!
The second car was intended to see how much we could get out of a somewhat stock block naturally aspirated V6. We basically redid the entire engine including heads, intake , holley dual pump carb, cam ignition etc, Used a number of Kenne-Bell derived parts. To make the Hawk more interesting we added the Monza race fairings and a custom paint scheme.Car was great fun because we had a ton of low end torque. I remember one day I was testing it( doing burn outs in the parking lot) and the police came!! They were all fired up until they saw how cool the car was and then I gave them the cooks tour of what had been doen to the car...I even offered to let them do burn outs as well! Stu Murray ( deceased) and Joe Blood were the key folks behind building this car and deserve a lot of credit. I just flew management cover and had fun driving it!
Glad you are not deceased! smileys with beer
