Well you may be new to the group, but that line must have brought GRINS to more than just me.

I figured as much! I'll see how cool she is when I bring it home :-). I figured the $1,200 investment was worth it though. Needs a little bit of work but that's just fine I like doing it

Sometimes it's better to ask for forgiveness than permission I believe is the theory. Not always a good one but I've asked for forgiveness a time or two.

My best buddy bought a new bike, but didn't share that piece of info with his wife. Then he arranged a small dinner party at house. Then under the pretense of getting a last minute item he left and returned with the new bike. Went pretty well while we were all there, never found out what happened after we all left.

Yep. They have the wrong wives. My wife was agreeable for the Corsa and then the Greeenbrier last year. Then this year I found a 62 Impala that was good looking, but she encouraged me to go after the Camaro that I have wanted for years.

As you see I have 5 classics at my home. 3 cars, 1 van and 1 tractor.

Well Matt, you met Connie, she pretty well supports my cars, bikes and guns. Then there is skis, windsurfers, sailboats and motor homes, the joint toys.

Hey Don, here is mine when I pulled it out at Leed's landing. Hauled it to Goose Creek and back. Van was 66 GMC Bell Telephone with straight 6 and PG. No problem!

We are getting way OT here, but I pulled a boat with me 65 Chevy van. Three on the tree with six. Smelled the clutch a few time on the ramps. Pulled OK, but panic stop, no way.

Thanks everyone! I cannot wait to get it home. My wife is totally cool. She recently just purchased her 69 Chevelle with a built 350 and a Muncie Rock Crusher! Sad thing is is that we had to sell it to fund our company but I'm sure the Corvair will be cool for her as well. We're looking for autocross and vintage racing. She will drive it as well. I'm looking for a good set of Racing headers or pipes for it if the one has any clue where to find some. The ones that are on it or shot. first thing to do is get it home and take the motor out and put it on the bench then get to work on the body and inside including fresh white paint, fix the rest, and roll cage.
