a drive in my Corvair reminds me how lucky I am!

With many states still locked down and all the issues we face, I am thankful I can get out and drive my cars. Took a few of my cars out for a 50 miles trip (each one ) today and forgot just how much I enjoy them. I truly enjoy the Corvair and really can't believe that they haven't become more popular. But, I guess that's a secret I'll just have to enjoy on my own.

How many of us have garage envy after seeing THAT shop !?

Good, at least you keep them preserved out of the weather

It's great to see that set of vairs, being kept like museum pieces, so they'll be around for years to come. And yes, getting behind the wheel of my vair and running through the hills of northern MD, sometimes up through the pocono mountains, is a great reminder of how great we have it in the USA.

Peace,
Ken

Indeed Bill!

We are blessed with Corvair "knowldege" that so few have the joy of experiencing.

Drive your Corvairs folks! That's why they exist.

Enjoy the Corvair!

I see in your signature you have a '67 Datsun 2000. My very first car was a '69 SRL311 thumbs up

When this all started, I "retired" my car, thinking the best thing to do was hunker down and not go anywhere for a while.

I lasted three weeks.

I never hunkered down. I have 2 1/2 acres to kept me busy, along with 4 classics. My More Door has accumulated about 1000 miles in the past 2 months and modern cars about 500 each. Not much change since i retired 3 1/2 years ago, except More Door got more miles than modern cars because of the nice weather here. Get a little hotter and I will rethink 4 window air conditioning drives.

With my frequent lunches with old work buddies and car guys shut down, golf course closed, I'm getting to spend more time in the garage. I'm not bored. Jim
