LM Corvair 16gb-64gb Memory Sticks
Posted by: SteveH ()
Date: December 21, 2016 04:16PM

Hey folks,

I just finished a project at work where we used a vendor to mold custom shaped USB memory sticks as promotional items.

Got me thinking.. (dangerous, I know)

So two days ago I sent them a bunch of pictures of my 1965 "Field Find" Corsa to use as a model. The attached image was their first pass.

Clearly, the nose is WAY wrong and the tail is too narrow. I think the front-to-back and side-to-side proportions are off as well.

They are taking a 2nd pass now. I should have updates by Friday.

at 16gb each a run of 100 will cost me about $1200 ($12/each) including the mold setup cost (IN AS MANY DIFFERENT COLORS AS I WANT!!!!) so to be reasonable I was thinking at a selling point of $15 + Shipping....

Thoughts? (I will be posting this to FB and CF as well btw)

I think it is a great idea. Do you think you can sell 100 at $15 a pop? I suspect this is what you are trying to determine with this post. I am an EM guy or I would pick one up. Hmmmm.... maybe an EM convertible? LOL.

I look forward to your next set of pictures.

If they are having problems with proportion, just show them a LM 4 door! grinning smiley Can't get any better proportions than that.

But seriously, if they'd do a LM 4 door, I'd be in for a half dozen, at least. Especially if they did them in Maroon. I'll even supply the photos, if needed.

PM Me the photos for the future if you do not mind..

The FB group has really run with this!

If this sells out quickly, I can get the EM next, then the Verts, then the FC, then the 4 door.

Sound good?

P.S. they also make custom shaped "power banks" also and my wife suggested UltraVans!!!!

It was also suggested on FB that we have the split at the base of the rear window to honor the rear engine.... I like it and asked that tonight

Having the car nose into the computer WOULD tend to look like it crashed into it. Backing it in may be a good idea, worth looking into.

BTW, put me down for one of each as they are made. In maroon, of course. And a pile of 4 door ones. grinning smiley

I would buy one in crocus yellow.

Your best bet would be to market it to the Corvendors.

I like the idea of having the split in the back. Then it could be modded to have LED headlights that run off the USB power.

Is each run one color? I don't see that they can do multiple colors in a hundred count run and make any money.
