Matt, is Charles car a V-8? Must be at those speeds, or a 6-cyl Eco-Boost. Either way, too fast. I saw the pictures of his first car. It looked like it would fit in the bed of a pickup. On the topic, I was told Arch Evans still makes custom air dams. I suppose side shirts would be easy for him.

Great kudos to Clark's! As I have been working on my Corvairs over the last few years, they are always there with the parts I need. NOS, New and they will even look for used parts for you. The best Corvair parts vendor out there. They have never let me down if I had a problem with one of their parts, usually sending me the right part for free. Amazing in the market of today.

The next transformer movie. I also wonder how much work one would need to do to pay for it. How much can they charge for an oil change? Then again, I bought a 2007 Toyota because I heard they were the best quality. Wrong! It did run fine for 70,000 miles, then everything falls apart. Water pump, timing cover, brake calipers and other smaller items. The water pump and then the timing cover require

Kerry, the differences are clear in Ken's pictures. The reasons for the differences address issues with the seats in turbo engines. The turbo engine gets hotter than their carbureted cousins because of the higher compression the turbo provides. That heat can make the head drop a seat, dislodge it from the head. That can be catastrophic. The best fix is to remove the old, stock seats and install d

I did this last summer. Took the parts from a 68 into my 65. I had to cut/drill a new hole for the second line into the cabin than get those hard lines in place. I used the "L" fitting from the 68 to the rear line and bought a simple reducer to take it from the "L" fitting to the 1/4" line. Lots of fighting and cursing but got it in. The line wanted to hit the clutch lever but after some discussi

I suppose I take the invisible had take on this. Value is what someone, on an average day, will pay for something. ales prices are set by the buyer. The seller can ask but if no one else agrees, the things are not sold.

$13,000 may be too much when that 66 turbo vert. just sold at auction for $10,000. To me, and I am not a restorer, it is not pretty at all. Stupid tail lights and what is probably a faux roll bar. I shouldn't be critical, I am sure some of my modifications would see ugly to other. To each their own.

Boy, that seems cheap for that 66 turbo vert.. At $$11,000 it's a pretty good price. Too bad I don't have the extra 10k or it would be mine. My problem is I bought a few several years ago and have all my money tied up in them! :X

I have a pair of good front drums if you want them. Free, you pay the shipping. Not sure where you are, I am in Oregon. FYI, changing the MC to dual will not change you cars class but it will keep you from hitting the wall if the brakes do leak! Safety equipment is rarely a cause for class change. I run front discs and it did not affect my class. They are "safety equipment" and unless your run

That's a solid option for a center mount. should be easier to tine than any carb.

EZEFI from American Pi. Proven system with good support. EFI is more efficient than carbs. Computer controlled fuel delivery, tuned with a smart phone and can be tuned for performance or mileage. Starts instantly and automatically compensates for most things a carb would fail at. Produces more HP due to superior fuel/air mix. Check them out. Worth the money.

I looked at the 66 turbo vert. on Haggerty this week. I can assume it is really high priced given the company at the auction. It does not list a catalog price and I wondered what it is expected to bring. As for our cars ever being in the stratosphere, forget it. Car prices for collector cars, not investment cars, is tied to the age of the people who had them originally and their wealth. Being

Agree. I would like to see your shop and machines. Sounds like Willy Wonka for Corvairs'. It's on my Summer tour list of places to see! (:D

Way beyond my bag and tag. Really well done. Your restoration will be something for future generations to see. Have you considered taking photos of each part and writing on the photos? A regular laser printer would provide great photo prints on regular 8.5" x 11" paper with all the details.

I see that the car is for sale (lettering on windshield). It's not listed anywhere I can find. Anyone have a link for that?

Yikes, those guys were really knitted into that drivers compartment. Straddling the tube frame must have been rough to enter or exit. In a crash, the driver would be really stuck if the frame collapsed. Must have been great fun to drive!

Roger, any chance you will do one in billet, or all metal with a metal knob instead of plastic? An aluminum lever would look cool.

I did my Koni's recently and as Robert says, the large rubber goes on first, down the shaft to the top of the shock body. That's a bump stop. Then a metal washer goes on facing up. That will only go as far as the top part of the shaft. Then one of the small rubber grommets. When you put it in the car, the second small grommet goes on the top of the shock tower, then the second metal washer. Then

Lots of fun and trouble to be had on CL. Those motorhomes were top line back when they were new. Now? You better have double, or triple, the $5,000 for the repairs it will need. Not as many parts for it as there used to be and expensive. Would you travel more with it? Would your wife go with you? Mine would drive in it but would stay in a hotel every night. That takes the fun out of "camping".

Good point Bill. It might be prudent to load it up with new, cheap, oil and then run the fuel pump by hand (well with a drill motor on a long driver) to circulate the oil before you drain it out. Motohead uses an old distributor shaft and that is a good idea. I might even get worried and do two flushes of oil. Keep flushing until you get no, or little, gas smell when you drain the oil. I assume,
