Disillusioned???
Are you kidding?
Why you are a Living Legend!
Anytime someone questions my ownership of more than one Corvair, I hang my head in shame, "Yes, it's sad that I only have three. But I used to have more" I tell them. sad smiley
Then I proudly point out "But there's a Guy in Texas, with over One Hundred Corvairs". cool smiley

Could this possibly be The Corvair Ranch West?
Or is that trademark infringement?

Hard to believe I've been on the forum longer than you, because I am an unworthy amateur in your presence. Dissolutioned? Try inspired.

There is my problem right there. Cars stored outside really won't fly. I'm pushing it with my unregistered Ultravan.

I stopped having any unregistered vehicles on my two acres after hearing a couple horror stories from car guys around town.

I had a 3 year court battle that I won because God was looking out for me. The city claims they won't mess with me again and so far that has been true. 4 years now.

As far South as he is, maybe the proper name for his place would be one of the following:

The Corvair Hacienda

The Corvair Plantation

The Corvair Rancho

P.S.
I think I recall Jeff saying that he has closer to 600 Corvair's at the Ranch at this time.
