Yes, a VERY nice looking car! But the dash is not the only thing. That rear cove is NOT Argent. It is a darker shade of Gray, and it is painted in a HIGH gloss. BUT, you got to give them credit for hunting down that original "spread tire" ! ! ! 8-) Oh, and a all-season one at that ! ;) Tell me, why do dumb people keep referring to a Corvair restoration as "Pan-up" ? ? ? As far as I know,

Hmmm, interesting. Could be just ignorance on the part of the article writer, but it has 2 things that caught my eye. It says that Dan G's Spyder . . . . made 152 hp. and had..... "a many bladed plastic fan on top of the engine --- instead of the standard metal model."

Shortening arms, drilling holes ? ? ? Sounds very interesting! Anyone want to go more in depth about this, and give us detailed instruction? The exact hows and whys, not just a generic answer. It is obvious how the whole leverage and a shorter stroke works, but what applications, and just how much should the stroke be shortened for what desired effect. PLEASE. And THANK-YOU!

I had not till now. Wish I still hadn't! Not worth watching when the guy is just spouting urban myths without fact checking what he says. I would suggest that anyone watching it stops it before the end so that he does not get credit for the viewing!

If it is cut by a computer program isn't there someway that Kevin could "reverse " all of the data to create a reverse fan for rev-engine guys too?

I remember when those came out. They were the Mack Daddy of their day ! Stylistically those were Light-years far ahead of ANYTHING else at the time too. Like a Late Model Corvair, the GMC motorhome still looks contemporary rolling down the road today !

I worked with a fellow years ago that drove a custom Chevy Van. It had Black aero-side-skirts. When I asked him where he got them he would just mumble some incoherent comment and change the subject. Finally after enough persistence, he came out and told me. He got them at . . . . > Home Depot < ! ! ! Yep, they were nothing more than Rubber Wall Base ! But, they did look good. B
