Hi Dale E. Smiley, Your topic is perfect! It looks like the workshop will take place on either March 1 or March 2 (or maybe both). Can you make it then? If so, write-up a few sentences about your topic, specify your audio-visual equipment needs, and give us an estimate of the amount of time you'll need. Send this info to Tracy Leveque (libgan2004@yahoo.com) and me (redbat01@verizon.ne

Hi Danny, Thank you for researching this and bringing it to our attention. The person who was nearly victimized is a fellow CORSA member from the Netherlands. It was just by luck that you, as a CORSA Director, became involved and saved him from what-could-have-been a financial loss. His membership in CORSA certainly paid off. I believe you also found the same scammer trying to use a

Back in the 1960s, the parents of my buddies Bob & Bill used to shop at Sears and had a Sears catalog around the house. I distinctly remember it having a Corvair section - like the J.C. Whitney catalogs of old - except a bit smaller. If I remember, the parts included aftermarket dual exhaust for Corvairs and some other accessories. Anybody remember this? :)

I too would be interested in limiting this discussion to improvements that would be period-correct, i.e. improvements based on proven technology that was available in the mid-to-late 1950s, when the Corvair was being designed. Last year, I wrote an article that attempted to meet this objective. It appears here, in the Lehigh Valley Corvair Club newsletter. It was easy for me to get it publis

Hi Ray Johnson - CORSA Member 3606, I checked the CORSA membership database. Yes, you're in there as member 3606. Thank you for being such a loyal member of CORSA! The Membership IDs start with 267, but there's no record of anybody with a Membership ID equal to 426. CORSA began way back in 1969 and it's membership grew quickly.

Whitewalls turning yellow - a very natural occurrence. Back in the old days (1960s), when white walls were popular, my brother and I always used Brillo or SOS pads to clean whitewalls. It works! When I replaced the whitewalls on my Corvair with blackwalls, my brother called me a cheapskate!

Hi Junkman, You wrote, "...they were disappointed that none of the Directors on the website would give an answer. All that I could say, was that it appears that CORSA doesn't seem to need that many new members." Ouch, that's awfully harsh. You posted your inquiry here just the day before. I try to visit this site daily, but sometimes, life gets in the way! Bruins_Fan is correct. If our r

Hi Rick, That's right! There's a little filler plate where the stock tailpipe would be, and it has an Abarth logo. I found the photo of this Corvair on the internet while I was looking for pictures of early 4-door Corvairs. Here is the URL. It appears to have been photographed in front of an Abarth office building, most likely in Turin, Italy. The sign on the building says "Abarth

I see a lot of Corvairs with dual exhaust mufflers mounted lower than stock so the tailpipes can be routed straight out the back of the car. They sound fine, but the mufflers look like they're nearly dragging on the ground. That was often the case with the original 140 duals, too. The U-pipes would loosen up at the manifolds and the mufflers would sag. To each his own, but I prefer t

Here is my story about the shoulder harnesses I installed in my '66 coupe. Previously, I had the factory shoulder belts and then Schroth shoulder belts. The factory belts were ridiculously uncomfortable and the Schroth belts rode up too high. So I replaced them. August / September 2014. Shoulder Harness Project.

I eventually replaced my Schroth harnesses with something better. Here is my story. August / September 2014. Shoulder Harness Project. Back when I installed shoulder harnesses in my 1966 Corvair, Morris Classic Concepts was not yet offering belts for Corvairs. And so, I was on my own. My set-up is a 3-point inertia reel system much like the ones installed by GM in cars starting in the m

I think you guys will get a kick out of this! Shown below is an ad that appeared on page 93 of "Corvair - A Complete Guide" published by Car Life magazine in 1963. It's from Turbonique, Inc. of Orlando, Florida and it features a "New Supercharging Concept". It claims, "Horsepower Boost of 100% or Greater or Your Money Back!
