I watched it. The two kids who do the show are funny. I've seen all of their episodes, they keep me entertained. It's like a Canadian version of Roadkill.

Ahhhhh - youthful optimism.

I was like that with old cars - a loooooong time ago. Now I look at a car like that and think - a lot of time and money.

Still nice it was saved.

Funny, it seemed like every other time they turned around, there was a different car in the next spot in the garage.

They showed a screenshot of an ad for the car at $2000, but did not say how much it actually sold for.
Personally, I think they paid way too much for it to begin with.
They had stated that they bought it for $1400.
Even with the CAD being at a 25% discount back in October that poor car was not worth that much.

I watched that too, from YT search for "Corvair". Funny guys. I think they play up the "Dumb" factor, to be likable and endearing to girls and their audience. Sorry they gave up tho, anyone recognize the truck that came and picked it up from them??

Too bad they didn't do a compression check!
Probably had a dropped seat on good ole #5 of that 140.

A quick check for low compression on one cylinder is to disable the ignition and spin it over with the starter if it's low on one it speeds up when going by that cylinder. I heard it on the video when they were trying to start it.

Hey Mel, my thought that too. Probably a dropped #5 valve seat. They could have discovered that early on and swapped the bad head out.

Probably for the best that they didn't get it running.
Maybe the new owner will do something constructive with the car, and possibly even end up on CCF. thumbs up
Would be interesting to find out if it ever gets restored.

These guys remind me of me when I was a teen. My favorite part is when they discovered the little known bottle opener feature of a Corvair.
