Awesome photos. I see you have the correct "key" for your EM frunk.

So much for any qualms about "Flat Towing a Vair"!!

How did your Vair do in Winter?

Thanks for the reply..it did fine in AK although I soon sold it as a project. We had moved to AK in 1980 and this car was the remnant of my collection that I Had left back in Oregon. It was a Corsa 180 with a 110 in use with the original engine in the trunk. When returning to AK I just didn't have the time or facilities to justify keeping it, but I'm a firm believer in Corvairs in cold weather. No water or CARB ICE ISSUES...

In 1980 my DD was 64'

I am again wanting to use one for all round use..great car,,and can be flat towed if need be.

64 927 4spd 110..fighting rust.

actually, since it was a 66 Corsa, the 4spd did just fine in neutral...but i get the dig..

I'm one of the guys that has been interested in this flat-tow auto thing that has come up. I think I'd try it of I owned an auto..Although I'm not sure I would go long distances very fast, but I would risk it. We full-timed RV-ing for some years and to Flat tow an Auto Vair would be a plus actually.

I kinda wish this coupe in my post was an auto. I had good success driving them years ago. Not messing with rusted pully bolts would be a plus as well.
