Re: Hagerty Video; Will the Corvair Kill You?

I did not see it that way Bob.
I saw it as a video presented to those who do not know any better, ie. non-Corvair owners who have only heard nasty rumors.
And then a confirmation that . . . . .
NO! Indeed they will not kill you!
As mentioned above, it would have been nice if the NHTSA report had been mentioned, but over-all, I thought that it was a positive presentation of our favorite car.
As for What Hagerty had to do with it, I am guessing, VERY little.
I am thinking here,(and I realize that, that can be very dangerous) that Hagerty is simply providing a platform sponsorship of a video channel of short movies about various cars of interest to the classic car world.
I guess we just need to wait and see what different cars follow and how they treat them in up coming episodes.

Fun video to watch. And it’s probably one of the fairest portrayal of the Corvair’s handling characteristics; different but not inherently unsafe.

I'd like to see the same video with a 1960 Falcon being savaged like that.

First time I went off the road backwards was in my 1962 Chevy II Nova. Understeering around a long sweeper, then the rear got loose and into the weeds back end first.
