New guy, new Corvair
Posted by: Bobdudeman ()
Date: November 14, 2017 11:29AM

Hi everyone. I'm new to this site. I just acquired a 1967 Corvair and would like to keep it in its vintage race car form. I am trying to upload some photos but I can't really figure it out as I am not that computer savvy. I would like to throw some pictures up here so I could maybe get a little more input on it or if anyone has ever seen this car. I purchased it in Florida. any help would be appreciated on uploading photos. I'm also looking for any information on getting into scca road courses or track days and better yet autocross in the Fort Myers area if anybody has any info. Thank you again, Steve

A 1967 Vintage racer! Vairy Cool!

For photos, I like PostImages.org
You upload the photo from your computer to their space online, then use the direct link to display the photo here in the Forum.
Copy the direct link, then here in the message create/edit window use the icon in the middle that looks like mountains with the sun.
Click on that, paste the link into the pop-up and click OK
Use the Preview "button" to see how it looks.

Glad to meet ya! You'll have fun here.

Are you using a Windows PC? This works for all...basically....

1 Open PAINT [ graphic program ] and check on the FILE size in KB [ must be under 500 kb ] and viewing size should be 1024 x 768 or less

Normally reducing the viewing size reduces the file size.

2 Click on "Attach a file...",then Choose file..... then after locating the file SUBMIT

Either a GREEN notice will say SUCCESS or a RED notice will say FAILED.


Let us know how this works for you.. I will delete all FAILED posts.... so keep trying...

Here's a Stinger from back in the day at Sebring Florida.

Thanks everyone. I will give it a shot but I have to say I am a phone junkie when it comes to pictures. I was hoping to upload them from my phone. Once I get some photos online I will give some history breakdown as much as I know.

Your phone is just a tiny computer, right? thumbs up

I can resize on my android and it's not very new, the phone calls it studio, I can crop and resize.
The southeast corvair council is or was having an autocross near Orlando, can't remember exactly when, I couldn't go because of work but think it was in November.

I guess I don't know what a URL is

URL stands for Uniform Resource Locator
It's the string of characters in the "address" at the top of your browser.
AKA the "link address" when copying and pasting when using an online resource.

"We" all used to be ignorant of new things.
Just stick with it and learn as you go.

I guess I will have to wait for somebody to show me because nothing I'm trying is working. This is absolutely irritating for me. Problem is I can't ask my wife to do it because she doesn't know I purchased it yet LOL

You got it! You GOT it! thumbs up
It has the "Stinger Vibe" going there.
Post up some of the info on the Fisher Body ID plate on the rear frame-rail (below the inside of the tail-light housings)
Yenko did make a few Stingers in 1967 as well.
Is there a small aluminum plate on the driver's door hinge panel - right below the pin switch.
If so - Lets see that photo!!

Will do. I will have my dad try to send me a couple photos of those two plates. He lives up in Destin Florida right now. I am driving up on the 26th to work on it with him for a week and then bring it home on a trailer
