I had better sell all my Corvairs before the values plummet, even with all the positive that has been said in written articles in the past few years about them.

Look at this commercial as an opportunity to educate those who know nothing about Corvair's even though the add was not technically correct. I got a good laugh out of it.

Now, how many of you have rubber hoses and fuel filters of plastic in the engine compartment where they could be broken by an errant fan belt. Could this be a wakeup call for some of you?

If your car is going to the toss I will be looking for such bad mechanical errors.

Why are some people here, saying it gives the Corvair a "black eye"??? As if the general public, save for Corvair familiar people and all us owners, can spot a Corvair in a line of "classic cars". C'mon people.... Its a funny commercial, promoting Farmers Insurance.

FARMER 'S INSURANCE COMMERCIAL

OT- Anyone see the new Farmer's Insurance commercial ?

The Fire mascot is riding in a car in a parade when those watching yell "FIRE FIRE"!!

Well the mascot is riding in .....a EM Corvair whose engine is on fire !

At the end of the commercial, the scene switches to the Insurance company's headquarters where now a LM car rear half is on display with a bonfire in the engine compartment. Kind of funny at our expense

The only cars I have ever seen actually catch fire were a Volkswagen and a Cadillac.

The jist of their advertising campaign is they've seen just about everything.
Did one of their policy holders make a claim because their Corvair had a fire?
That's likely. It's not a blow to Corvairs, it's a jab at that one policy holder.
The owner of a car could have failed to tighten fuel lines, or set the timing wrong caused the car to backfire, or anything. Any car can catch on fire if you do something that causes it. It's usually not designed that way. Usually.

I honestly thought it was very positive press they decided to use both an early and a late. I liked it.

No, we have people trying to help people do the right thing. You have the right to not accept help and drive an accident waiting to happen.

I also always point out the dangers of rubber lines in a Corvair engine compartment. Fan belts have a habit of cutting them open spilling fuel on a hot engine. Sure it doesn't happen all the time, but if I don't point it out and they have a fire....sad smiley

Same with earlies and no starter post protection on the left heater hose. Seen too many heater hoses smoking on earlies to not point out that hazzard.eye popping smiley
