so that means, so that means, that technically, Steve McQueen once tooled around in a Corvair. That's the line I can give to all the people that sneer at it!

I refreshed a 140 for a local VW guy who's building one. He said there were only about a dozen bodies made by Meyers and this one was NOS never put into service.
Bruce Meyers was here for Bug-In event a few years ago which was interesting.
