If you are even Half-way close to PDX, this is a "MUST DO" event ! ! !

CORSA Oregon's Corvair College" is NEVER a let down.

ALWAYS a GREAT time!

If you don't have a lot of FUN, it is your own fault.

CORSA Oregon, an incredible group of AWESOME people ! ! !

In addition - I will NOT make it to the college sad smiley (scheduled to work on the railroad that weekend smiling bouncing smiley) BUT since folks will be coming from all around I would suggest you come by a day or two early -

Thursday and Friday (Sept 27th and 28th) I will be open at the McMinnville shop for a pre-moving clearance sale. All new parts will be for sale (at special prices) and a lot of other stuff will be available just for the asking.

Our house has apparently sold (we'll sign this afternoon) and in a month or so we'll be thinking about where to move the shop. I want to move as little as possible. Come on by and get some great stuff.

I should be at the shop regular hours 10am-4pm

As usual, a great turn-out at the Corsa Oregon Corvair College.





We saw presentations on bodywork and painting, Nate Wolfe on Differential rebuild/set-up and a travelogue of Rex Johnson's family trip/tribulations!.



Regan Metcalf, Corsa Oregon president this year, was our m/c & grill chef cooking great Bratwurst and Burgers to perfection. No one went home hungry! Folks brought plenty of side-dishes and snacks along with our hosts Sharon's famous Popcorn and Paul's delicious soft-serve ice cream. The ladies even made nice floral table centerpieces for the lunch break. What a great event!

I brought a copy of Dave Newell's very limited release book "the (in)Compleat Corvair Story" and offered it to anyone who would make a substantial donation to our Corvair Preservation Foundation (CPF) ~ Steve Brown, Corsa Oregon Membership director & Corvanatics new president stepped up and is donating $100.

The 2019 NW Corvair Econo-Run location was announced at the College. Everyone is invited next April 25,26,27 2019 to Leavenworth, WA. The Econo-Run will be hosted by Inland Northwest Corvair Club of Spokane/Coeur d'Alene. The more central location of Leavenworth will make participation by all the NW clubs easier, not to mention, it's a beautiful place!

Looking forward to many more great NorthWest Region Corvair events in 2019!

Glad you found it. Sorry about your friend.

Last year my wife dropped her flip-phone in our driveway without realizing it.
I went out 6 hours later and found it, with fresh tire tread marks over it.
Surprisingly, it still worked although the screen was permanently black (unlit). No cracks though.

We took it to the local Verizon store, and they replaced it for free! As long as the screen was not broken, they covered it; just had to send the old one back.

I know that doesn't help your situation, but I thought it was an interesting story...
