Over 1700 articles are currently included, and more will be added in the future. The articles can be searched using a list of key words and/or by entering your own search words. And there are a variety of other search options that can be used.

Uh, I just tried it.
It will let the public do a search, but when you want to actually look at the article, it wants a Log-in.
Or, what am I doing wrong?

Ah.
Got it.
I did not quite catch that when reading your post.
But after, multiple times of re-reading it, it kinda made sense.

I should have mentioned that Molly Bacon helped to complete the indexing of the CorvanAntics articles by adding in all of the titles. A lot of work. Thanks Molly!

Question, "Has anyone else noticed that the Classified section has been dead for months?"

Answer: It's true that they had been dead, but we brought them back to life last year. The Classified Ad pages are alive and well on the CORSA website. The most recent one was posted just a week ago.

Visit www.corvair.org and you'll find "Classified Ads - Buy and Sell" on the navigation menu on the left side of the screen. Click on it, and the website will bring you to the all the active classified listings that are available. If you don't see the link on the navigation menu, refresh your browser. And if you still don't see it, send a private message to me.

Anybody can shop through the classified ads shown on this page, but to post an ad, you need to log-on our website. When you log-in, you'll see additional menu items for posting and maintaining your ads. Currently, log-in privileges are limited to CORSA members.smiling bouncing smiley

I'm pleased to announce that the technical articles from the entire archive of CORSA Communiques have now been indexed and included in the CORSA Technical Article Search Page. Special thanks to Allan Lacki who helped with the final push to complete the indexing of the 1979 - 1985 Communiques. The grand totals are a remarkable 1811 tech articles from the Communique, and 2330 articles overall including the other indexed publications.

The CORSA Tech Article Search Page now includes the complete collection of Mike Dawson's "The Preventative Maintenance Series" tech articles. This series of over 120 articles has been published over a ten year period in the VairCor newsletter of the Heart of America Corvair Club and brings the total collection to approximately 2430 articles. The series is included in key word searches or can be browsed by selecting "Preventative Maintenance Series" in the topic list. Thanks to our friends in the HOACC for suggesting that these articles be included.
