Gary,

I see the note about trailer parking at the Holiday Inn. My question is, is there any trailer parking at the host hotel or do all trailers get taken to the noted area?

Asking for a friend. winking smiley

There is no trailer parking at the host hotel. Outdoor vendors are the only exception and those will to be parked only when there is room to safely maneuver.

The trailer parking area is clearly shown on the centerfold of the Program.

Question: Do you have to be a member to attend?
Answer: To participate in any of the activities or attend any of the meetings, yes.
To see the cars in the parking lot or be a spectator at the autocross, no.

When I looked at the pinup map yesterday, Oregon had the most pins! I did see a nice blue LM coupe being washed up yesterday (presumably for Concours) that had Oregon plates and an Ultravan with Oregon plates that was possibly my girls' favorite behind the Mystery Machine!

We had to leave the convention early. Does anyone have the concours and autocross results?

2017 CORSA Convention
Posted by: jimc ()

The 2017 CORSA Convention has come to a close.

If you did not attend this convention than you missed a wonderful week of events; interesting local tours, great food and of course the opportunity to meet Corvair folks, some who drove as far as 1800 miles to the convention.

I entered my 1965 Corsa in both the Concours and Car Display events and volunteered at the Rally and Car Display events.

Our Corsa was first shown at a 2015 AACA event, but this was my first CORSA Convention and Concours, since joining in 2016 and the most rewarding as judged by Corvair enthusiasts. Our 6 year restoration effort was rewarded with a Concours Senior award with 96.06 points. My wife and I were very excited and pleased to say the least.

For those who at times have doubted their ability to complete their Corvair project, hold fast to your long term goals, the reward is worth the wait.

I would like to thank HACOA for a great convention, our Corvair vendors and specific Corvair individuals like; John Sweet, Mike Dawson, Charlie Clark and Ray Sedman, as well as, many CCF members without whose assistance my Corsa would still be in the restoration phase.

On to Pittsburgh, PA in 2018.

I just got home from the convention - it was only a 5.5 hour drive.

Tow-dolly trip with my 65 Monza 4-door.

I competed for the Cole, for the first time, and also Concours for the first time. I ended up with a Silver award for concours (93.something), 2nd in SS4 for the Autocross, and 4th in the Rally. The Econorun....lets just say I probably used the most gas, with 4 people in the car, a 140 PG, and didn't start with a full tank. I also couldn't stand the 30mph Corvairs in the 55mph zone, econorun or not - so I blew past them.

The Rally ended up with a Tie for 2nd/3rd and a tie for 4th/5th. I ended up 4th with the tie breaker.

It was a great convention. On Wednesday - the Econo-Rain, and Rally were quite wet, until the middle of the rally. I'm fairly certain that during the Econo-Rain, we forded streams axle deep, and the Corphibian definitely had an advantage, if he turned the props on....

Hopefully I'll post some pics later, once they come off the Digital SLR...
