May 1963 Motor Trend Corvair Mentions

Hi Guys,

I picked up a May 1963 Motor Trend Magazine at an Antique store recently. Attached are scans of all the Corvair-related items, including coverage of that year's Canadian Winter Rally, which was won by a Corvair. A Corvair also took second!

It also included an ad for a 1963 Spyder that I had never seen.

I have much higher resolution versions of all this, but I had to fit them to 500kb, so there we are.

Cheers.

Looks like there were 2 other Corvairs entered.
Neither of them finished.
One "Ditched".
And the other had Transmission troubles.

Since that Corvair is not the only one that ditched, I'm assuming that what that means is it ended up in one.
