Turns out my oldest son and his family are staying at the same campground. He doesn't know that much about Corvairs, but he was able to ID the cars and trucks, and asked about the RVs. He has already been extended an invitation to come by the open house they are having tomorrow. Sometimes it's a small world!

You sure about that Ted? The only part of the rear door weatherstrip that might match is the bottom. The sides are taller and the top is way wider than a sedan.

Not surprising if it is an older driver who can't hear so well or smell much of anything anymore... especially after being rattled by a panic stop.

The humidity is a killer here in NE Ohio, along with temps in the high 80s and 90s. It's been two and a half weeks that we have enjoyed A/C for our home. Never ever had air in my life before, but health problems necessitated it. Had the "A" coil installed in a new furnace in 2013. Finished it off (when we could afford it) with a 5 ton unit outside. No regrets. No

With the stock wheels and wheelcovers, will the car look “wrong” with blackwalls? My answer: Yes, because it will look like something is missing. Options: 1) You could use beauty rings with blackwalls... 2) Sell the car to me!

This is a promo by Eastwood, but it shows the internal components of the door. It may be useful for someone trying to visualize what it looks like. See 3:33 and on. This is on a LM coupe.

You can often let a street bike sit over the winter without issue if you add the oil. Sounds like it wouldn't hurt to try that Joel. How much is "a little" per 10 gallons?
