I grew up a couple of blocks over from "Greenbreir Drive" in Bettendorf, IA.

There is always the Greenbrier Resort in Wild Wonderful West Virginia.
I hear it is supposed to be a nice place to visit in the event of a Nuclear Attack but I wouldn't want to live there.grinning smiley [www.greenbrier.com]

We've stayed at the Greenbrier twice and I can honestly say it's one of the finest resorts in the country. They have everything you could want; tennis, golf, horses, bicycles, carriage rides, underground bunker tour. They have quite a few restaurants and all are incredible. Proper attire is (coat & tie) is mandatory in the main dining rooms but there are many casual dining choices too. Also, bring lots of money, it ain't cheap.

By the way, the "secret" underground bunker built as a wing of the Greenbrier during Eisenhower's term to house Congress now belongs to the railroad. Tours are neat. It was thought back then to be an ideal location for an isolated Govt bunker since ICBM nuclear delivery didn't exist. An airplane bomber would deliver nuclear bombs and the Greenbrier's location between mountains would make it difficult. Today, it would be pretty easy target.

Pretty sure the Greenbrier Hotel in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia was the "inspiration" for the Chevrolet name.
In the 1950s (and maybe later) GM held Executive Meetings there. I've got a book in my collection from one of those sessions at the Greenbrier.

Dan,
That is what is stated in many Corvair books.

But you know, . . . .

I guess I'm going to have to look for my photo of my '64 Greenbrier parked in front of a small motel (long gone) named the Greenbrier Motel.

Or take a photo of the office building in my hometown with its name etched in concrete above the entrance, CORSA BUILDING, so named because it is adjacent to the street named CORSA TERRACE on which stand the CORSA CONDOMINIUMS.

Or, still in my hometown, I could drive down LAKEWOOD ROAD.

Today I live elsewhere, but not far from here is the town of Lakewood, NJ.

But, in the meantime, here's a photo of the RAMPSIDE LIGHTHOUSE in England, my ancestral home.

The white panel on the side of that lighthouse folds down to form a ramp. Secret GM documents confirm that an executive visiting England in the late 1950s visited this lighthouse and suggested the name to the Corvair 95 design team. Unfortunately, GM failed to do adequate research. Although a clever, innovative idea, lighthouses of this design were constructed for only 4 years - it turned out that hardly anyone really wanted a ramp on the side of a lighthouse.

In my local Thomas Guide that covers San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties there are four Greenbriers...two in SLO and two in SB.
