Here is a pic of the tube chassis Go cart that was clocked at about 189 on the back straight at willow, also a fleet of cars I maintained while working for PM Performance, A 2005 Indy car and 2 formula Mazda's, This is at California speedway, I can post racing pics all day. Bob, If you want to build a race car out of a Corvair then do it, there are a lot of guys here with good advice willing to help you, but you need to start off with the basics first, also never under estimate who you might be talking to on this board, there are a lot of pretty smart guys that know a thing or 2 about Racing a Corvair! smileys with beer

Thanks Dave

If I come up with any sharp questions I will ask you.

I am all excited about '60 coupe.That is long and short of it.

My background is just doing it 'my way' for better or worse.

Have a good one.

I actually got my 60 sedan in the pics from the race track, they were going to take it to the dump, it was left in the Race car grave yard at the track, they asked me if I wanted the old Corvair out there? I went and looked and found this super nice 1960 sedan, So I took it!

The best advice I can give you is: Get the car, look at it, and post pics here and ask questions, it gives everyone something to look at, and easier to get an answer, a picture tells a 1000 words right? Try to fix the car first then modify it, once you get your hands on it then its easier to make decisions! Post pics when you get the car? thumbs up

So where are the pictures of the 60 racer?


Looking forward to this as a 60 was my first car. Never got it road worthy but learned how to drive on 5 cyls milk carton for a seat with bungy cords to hold the door in place. The current owner has just finished and the car will be at its first public display in over 30 years.

'Post pics when you get the car?'

Yep.I have asked current owner for pic's.

' milk carton for a seat'

Drove our '76 Dart 6 cylinder to the car wash to pressure wash.

Milk crates no bungee cords.Fun.

One last cleaning before disassembling to make Pro Street car out of it.

Could hang '70 glass body parts on it.Same unibody.

Yes.Asking for pic's.

Actually Dave motohead (I know what that means) is younger than me as is Joel and Geoff and I'll be 60 in June.
60 is also the year I was born. There are a few Corvairs older than me but not many.

'I'll be 60 in June.'

If you don't mine I'll stay out of that one.

Here is one cool pic.(I think so.) of '60 Corvair.

Will post two more in separate post.
