Best 1960s Cars - Let's move the Corvairs up the list!
Date: March 04, 2018 03:22AM

Ranker.com - Best 1960s Cars
65.5k votes - 6.9k voters - 437.8k views - 95 items
Easy to sign in and vote. I added the Corvair Turbo models - look way down on the list, since it's new...
(Site was not working with the photo add, so I'll have to get back on that.)

Let's bump those 'Vairs up, I say!


Dan Davis ~ Pierce County, WA ~ CORSA Western Director + Corvairs NW + North Cascades Corvairs + Corvanatics
1966 Corsa Turbo coupe ~ ~ 1966 140 Corsa ~ ~ 1965 Monza 140/4 'Vert Sierra Tan/Fawn ~ 1964 Monza 'Vert (SOLD) ~ 1960 Monza Ermine White/Red PG ++ ~ 1965 Monza 140/4 Evening Orchid w/ ivory/black interior ~ 1962 Monza Wagon 102/4 ~ 1963 Rampside/Scamper ~ 1963 Red/Greenbrier ~ 1969 Ultra Van #468

thumbs up
Yes, it would be fun to see it pass many of the cars already existing on that list!
Just curious as to your motivation behind this?
Are you trying to increase awareness of the Turbo Corvair, or draw people to the Corvair world?

Why not add Monzas?
More of them made - More likely to be found.
More within the reach of the common man.

After a closer look at how the website works, just adding a positive vote to the Corvair does very little to move it up the list.
The fastest way to move it UP the list, is TO ALSO GIVE A NEGATIVE VOTE TO EVERYTHING ABOVE IT ! ! !

"VOTES
Every time someone votes on an item, it moves up or down depending on the ratio of up to down votes."

"RERANKS
When someone takes the time to rerank the whole list, this has more influence on the item's position than a binary up/down vote."

They also have a list of the > > "Worst cars ever made" < < and someone has put the Corvair on it.
We need to get it OFF of that list!
On that list you need to vote down the Corvair, and vote up everything below it!

We started out at 96!

If you mouse over to the upper left of any ranking number a menu bar appears. You can send a notice of cars that don't belong on the list (like the Viper) or cars that are on there more than once.

The site still won't accept any photo I try to post.
Dag-nabit!
