Off to Car's & Coffee this past Saturday in Newberry Park. There was a chance of ran this weekend, but it never materialized.
It takes me about 35 minutes to drive over the hill's and through some residential areas to get to the gathering. But it's a nice two or three hour informal car collector get together at a strip mall with The Old Style Deli right there. Had 5 Corvair's this time and about 50 cars total. Buttt because I was spending the entire time gabbing... I didn't take any photo's this time!eye rolling smiley

Oh well... Dainer's Rampy was out on the road again!smileys with beer

So a couple weeks ago, I took Dainer's Rampside to the All GM model car show at Warner Ranch Park in Woodland Hills Calif.
There was every GM model car there from Cadillac to Corvette, Buick, Olds, Pontiac... The years presented were from the 19-teens to modern vintages. There was a sea of GTO Goat's. And yes... at least a few Corvairs.

Come the end of the afternoon, awards were presented. They had best of show for each model GM vehicle. Daner's Rampside won Best of Show - Chevrolet!smiling bouncing smiley

What an honor! It's all for you Dad!thumbs up

Central Coast Corsa, Vair-Fest June 23. Dainer's Rampside joined 31 other Corvairs for a real nice show in Heritage Park, Arroyo Grande, Calif.
Central Coast Corsa puts on a super fun event each year. Thank you CCC.

They had come creative trophy's this year. Some real fine Corvair's on display, including some really nice FC's. Dainers Rampside brought one home!

Thanks again everyone.smileys with beer

SO I decided to finally use the 21-338A 7016524 or 1965 NOS Carburetors that I have been holding for 25 years. I have been wanting to install these in Dainer's Rampside since I did the engine. But the old used carb's have just been running too perfectly!!!
Well, they may have ran fine, but they have the 50+ year use issues. I also wanted to bring the new - restored finish to the engine compartment.

So here went the project recently!

Yes... your not seeing things. A couple purchasers prior to me bought these for $10 each!eye popping smiley

So I got them all done. Installed and adjusted.
Just a bit of test running and I'll put the air filters back in.

off to a Car's & Coffee for a test drive this past Saturday. It's about 18 miles to the meet. Now the old carburetors I had on there ran great. But it may be all in my head... but these NOS units sure run sweeeeet!

One more thing off the check list!smiling bouncing smiley
