I bought my Corvair a few months ago with old car experience but ZERO knowledge of Corvairs. I had never even ridden in a Corvair until the day I bought one. You guys who have owned Corvairs for a long time may now think a lot of the little things are just common sense, but in fact that's knowledge earned through the school of hard knocks.

I greatly appreciate those who have offered help and sometimes had to be very patient with me.

At this point, I've been really persistent with some issues with my car and some of the subtle things, the small things, are starting to kick in and really make sense. You can read all the posts in the world and read all of the procedures in the manuals, but sometimes it just takes a while for the light to suddenly dawn and for the big picture to come into focus.

Anyway, I'm making real progress, and I appreciate the knowledge base here. I bought this car from a guy who claimed to be a mechanic, and I am solving some issues with this car that he never solved. He might have been a mechanic, but he doesn't seem to have had access to you guys!

Special thanks to American Mel who has been especially helpful in the background.

Hello Glen, We all welcome your questions & thoughts here on CCF. My 1st Corvair was a brand new '61 Monza 4 speed coupe & I have had about 10 Corvairs since that Dec. 25th day of 1960.I believe you are fortunate to have the best of the early models with your '64 Monza. It looks to be a really nice surviver.
I have also learned a lot from this bunch of people, & have been able to contribute also. Stay in touch with us. It's gonna be a good ride.

You'll find a wealth of knowledge here. I for one can attest to the help that I've gotten on this forum and from my local club members when it came to getting things done efficiently and safely!

The final 10% of sorting can take a lot of time. Not time like 8 hours straight but time to change a little something, test drive it again and then mull over the next little something. Oftentimes a lot of little somethings get fine tuned that otherwise may have been deemed close enough before figuring out the big something, if you know what I mean.
