Recently picked up a 63 Corvair 900 Conv. Has a 66 engine, runs ok, 4 spd, 64 trans, a real frankenvair!. First Corvair so I'm real interested in digging in. Need to finish my 67 Cutlass conv. first, almost done. Picked up a new set of floors, completed a full brake job. Came with a 64 parts car that I've already stripped and sent to the shedder. Not much there on the parts car, rustiest car I've ever seen, no drivetrain. So I'll get to it soon, I have a lift in my shop so work is easier. Can't post pics my files are too large for here.. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum (and Corvairs!). Where do you live? For posting pics, most people with a PC use an image resizer to make the photos smaller. Yes, you definitely have a mix of parts in that car but it sounds like you've got some things figured out.

I'm just outside of Jacksonville Fl. As for the image resizing, I have no luck with those things. Some forums they fit, some don't. I'll work to try to get a least a few on here when I get a chance.

Most Vairs are now a mixture of parts since so much interchanges between years and models.

Try [tinypic.com] and change "default" to 800x600

Welcome to CCF. Fix a signature line with your name/city/car details. You have a decent combination of parts: late engine is good--64 4spd is good ratios and shifts good--early convert model will attract everyone when you are at a service station wanting to look and tell their Corvair story.

Jacksonville area shows lots of CORSA members. You should join both CORSA and your local club now while you are working on your car. The help and support is immeasurable. The national club (CORSA) supports us, we need to support it. look here: www.corvair.org

Enjoy your convert.

best wishes, Steve

If you have MS office on your PC, try MS Office picture manager, easy to use, couple of clicks.

If they are pics from you phone, email them to yourself and use the 10% option, then save on your PC.

>> As for the image resizing, I have no luck with those things. Some forums they fit, some don't.<<

Your images may be too large for the other forums as well. Some forums have software that automatically resizes your image. A forum I am on, lists 100k as max, but if you enter a 1meg image, it will upload as a 50k image without you even noticing.

If you have Windows, you should have Paint. Open your image in paint and click resize. Select Maintain Aspect Ratio and Pixels. Set Horizontal Pixels at 900 or less. Save file as JPEG (.jpg)

It's far too easy to use Paint than any other method.

I'll try some of those solutions. Thanks

I did type up a signature, but don't see it here.
I'm much better with cars.

Regrettably, the Jacksonville area does not have a local club. Nearest active club is central Florida Corvair in Orlando.

PLEASE PM ME, this could be very beneficial to you!

Welcome to the fun. As Steve said you have a good combo of Frankenvair stuff. Most of us prefer the 164 inch engines for a multitude of reasons. Looking forward to your pics. And your Cutlas pics as well.

Welcome, as far as pictures I now use Imgur. You can use the mountain icon above and then post the direct link. That is what I did in the post with the trans pictures.

Attachments are nice but generally small most times, to small for me.
