Wife is bugging me to dispose of most all my Corvair memorabilia, and Corsa magazines. I will probably be listing the memorabilia on eBay as I have time, but not certain how to sell of all of the magazines. Should I group them by year, or try to sell them individually. It has been so long ago that I acquired these, I presently have no idea how far back they go, or how far forward they go. I am assuming that most everything is going to be prior to 2010. Suggestions please.

Paul:

DO a search on the Forum for Corsa Magazine. A few sales come back. Mel Couldn't sell 72for $20 someone else sold 60 months missing a few for $20. Depends on who wants your years.

I have a numerous ones from 1983 - 2013. I don't think there would be any takers for the scattered issues I have. I just haven't taken time to type up the list and post it here for members to see what I have. Members who are Corsa members have the electronic versions, so we are limited to non-Corsa members who haven't acquired issues bought with their cars.

Al.... from what I gather you are saying, it isn't worth the time to bother with them. Time is the one thing that I am running out of, so they will head to the back burner for now. thanks for the input.

My suggested value - and method of distribution is USPS Flat rate padded envelopes. You can just squeeze 12 Communique issues into one padded envelope - and that is under $8 to mail, anywhere in the USA. That should also be your price. Offer them to anybody new to the Corvair hobby. $8 - mailed to you! You can specify cash and ask them to mail it to you ahead. They will get some good reading and you will get shelf space. The good Tech tips have already been gathered into the Corsa Tech guide!

They can be shipped via "Media Mail" for very low postage within the US.

Take a few min to assess what you have, take a couple photos, then offer them up here as an "auction" to benefit the CPF Corvair Museum Fund.

Folks make their bid as a post to your thread.

Big win for everyone.

My suggestion: Donate them to the Corvair Preservation Foundation so they could sell them at conventions for a buck per issue as a fund raiser. I gave all of my duplicate issues a few years back and we did sell several at the convention in Springfield. If you want a tax write-off that could be done. Check with Mike Hall (CORSA and CPF Pres.) for details.

Is there going to be anyone from the Corvair Preservation Foundation at the Helen SpringFest?

I have a big stack of Communiques I can give them for their fund raising.

March 1973 Jun/Jul 1974 84 full year 1985 - missing Sept
1986 - missing Jan, Feb, Mar 1987 - missing Aug 1988 Full year
April 1989 1991 full year 1992 full year Jan 2004
Jan 2004 Mar - Dec 2012 Jan Oct 2013 Jan - Oct 2014

Not interested in shipping them. Will deliver to Springfest to CPF only.

A better use would be to help CPF and defray cost of the new Museum. We used to give them to non-club member Corvair owners that we might see at shows or on the street. Problem now is we don't see too many Corvairs on the street or even at shows (at least not many Corvairs not already attached to the club scene).

Mike Hall of the CPF has contacted me and he will get my issues of the Corvair Communiques from me at the SpringFest in Helen Georgia. I will also be donating this wall hanging at the same time. Just doesn't fit my home or Corvair Center.

Just to let you know, I sent an email this morning to the CPF regarding the Communiques to their email address to initiate the communication process.

Cole:

Two ways to get that issue.

1. PM Junkman and get it from him.

2. Come to Helen in April and get that issue from CPF, after I deliver the Communique package to CPF.
