I entered a car show last weekend. No trophies but I won a $50 gift card from Hagerty! The only Vair out of 76 cars.

Sold me the new floor pans for my LM vert. They also sold me cut out sections of used floor so I could harvest the tunnel sides from it. Excellent to deal with!

Updating this old thread... I drive from St. Louis to Springfield MO about once a month. The two EM Corvairs, a red and a white one, that sat outside the mule trading post are now gone. It looks like the mule trading post might be closing. It's been a landmark for decades. Further north on the highway I saw another red and white pair of EMs at a lot that has a large steel quonset hut look

Always wear them when handling POR-15! I even coat my hands in Vaseline before putting the gloves on so I have some secondary protection if they rip.

I know nothing about the power tops. I can say that for my manual top, I just have to lift at one corner and the whole thing folds up on its own. I do have to fold the window though because it tends to crease up across the middle. In your case, I would suspect that one side is pulling harder than the other, causing the assembly to bind. I had something similar when I replaced a fraying cable on m

It's basic economics that when the Fed raises rates, the stock market will retract. Rising interest rates slow the economy which scares investors into more conservative investments, such as money markets and bonds. It also makes those lower risk investments more attractive because it raises the return on investment. I remember in the late 90s when money markets were paying around 5% interest

According to this article they will only replace items that they are currently selling. So if they sell a 1/4" ratchet drive, they will replace your old one.

100 years from now one of these will turn up in a box of Corvair parts and there will be a heated discussion on whether Don Yenko originally attached these to the keys of every new Stinger he sold. ggg Nice work, Dave! Your industriousness is quite impressive.

It's not just the cost of shipping the car from coast to coast. Most buyers will want to see the vehicle in person so there is the cost of a cross-country trip for the buyer too.

I replaced the floors in my LM vert using a 4.5" angle grinder with cutoff wheels and a battery-operated sawsall. A decent angle grinder will be under 100 bucks and goes through 18 gauge and thinner body panel with ease. Otherwise, if you still want a plasma cutter you may want check Eastwood's website and see what they have.

Does it have the Ford Duratech 3.0 V6? They are notorious for having ignition coils fail. The resin that they use to plug the top of the coil will crack over time. If it runs worse when it's humid that could very well be the problem.

When I bought my Vair back in 1999 it included a copy of the Corvair Underground catalog and a few Nader Bucks. I learned about from the tech sections of the catalog and from the Penguin papers that would come in the mail. I also met Lon and Linda at the Corsa Convention in Chicago in the early 2000's. Wonderful and kind people. Best wishes to both of you!

I hate to go against what Steve Sez as he does this for a living, but in my own experience I had good luck with lubricating my bearing. Mine was starting to howl a little bit when started on a cold day. I bought one of the greasing tools about 5 years and pumped fresh grease into it and it has been quiet ever since. I'm sure a lot has to do with how long the bearing was run dry. Also, if

I know we have all sides of the political spectrum on here and we aren't supposed to discuss politics, but can we all at least agree not to vote for Nader?

IMO, Rust Bullet is far superior to POR-15. It will stick to existing primer and is UV stable. I know you said you wanted it locally, but Rust Bullet is available on Amazon so you can have it in a few days.

My personal experience is that in extreme temps the synthetics don't turn to molasses like the petroleums do. My Cavalier had an oil pressure gauge that would absolutely peg in the winter time with petroleum oil. When I switched to synthetic of the same viscosity (10W-30) the cold reading droppped significantly AND it didn't drop off as much when the engine was up to temp.

Mine sits pretty tight to the bumper so it's not a shin-splitter. I only use it for a bike rack, so there's not a ballmount left in there to get rusted in place. I'll wipe some oil into it before winter. Thanks for all of the suggestions.

I installed the repro floor pans in my vert. The pans come flat with a raised edge that is roughly 4" tall and not quite vertical. I had to cut the vertical section off and less than an inch of the flat portion to fit them into my car. The inboard section of the rocker on a vert protrudes a lot more into the car than on the coupe. I would suspect that for a coupe install, some of the vertica

They are not weights. They have a spring and hydraulic fluid inside that provides dynamic damping.

Looks like you could use a radiator cap. I'll bet the Corvair one that OPG sells might work.
