The San Diego Corvair Club is looking for old Corvair fans to use event trophies. Condition is not important. We will clean and paint them. Early or Late, doesn't matter. If you have several to donate, all the better. Thanks,

One of the best, educational sound control sites I have found over the the years: Lots of good information there. Here is a monster thread with specific measurements on various sound absorbing products: And a link to some older Dodge Cummins diesel forum posts for sound deadening information and links to other threads: Hope this helps.

Gentlemen, Have we forgotten? This is only the 4th and CHEAPEST car in space. Besides, the other 3 actually worked in space. Nobody will ever drive the Tesla.

Turns out both of these colors are 3 part paints, not 2 part paints. So just the paint material is 50 percent more expensive that 2 part paints. Went with the Mazda Soul Red metallic. Also ordering new rubber mouldings and fuzziest fro Clark's on Monday. This stuff does add up, right. Any way, in for a penny, in for a Pound, right?

Key thing here:. As P.T. Barnum was supposed to have said: "No such thing as bad publicity" Do we want publicity or do we want to kill the messanger over some language issues? Personally, I am glad to see the article in something other than old cars. The Corvair has lots to offer a new generation. I much prefer to look at the positive, rather than focus on the few things I don't neces

I have zero doubt that improved motor oils have greatly contributed to much longer engine life over the last near 50 years since the 1969 Corvair was new. Using the top grade 10-30 oils and changing oil at 3000 mile interval's I got 145k miles after 16 years on my then factory new 1969 Monza. And it was a head gasket failure that made me abandon the Corvair. Not an oil failure issue. So what

David, Sounds like you have the project well in hand. Only thing I would add. You guys are getting lots of modest earthquakes now. Doubt local building codes take that into account. Have your ex aerospace engineer/ builder look at California building codes and add some of the VERY inexpensive building up grades. Here in California, each big earthquake brings new lesson, leading to code upgrade

From what I see on the road, lifted trucks need to use a larger drop on the hitch to keep the trailer level. If the hitch is not dropped, then the ass end of the trailer drags. Bottom line. The trailer needs to be flat and level.

In 1971/72 I installed A/C in my 1969 Monza Coupe. I used the factory high mount A/C bracket. The spare tire was mounted in the stock position and cleared the A/C compressor just fine. I mounted the dryer in the trunk and the condenser was a 66+ style in the engine compartment. This is/was the 1966-67 factory stock location for the A/C system.

I am with Seth, love living in California. Complaining about a $38/ year increase in DMV fees I petty. That is less than the cost of 11 gallons of gas. Property taxes are 1/4 of the rate in Texas and the weather sucks in Texas. John Jackson San Diego, CALIFORNIA

About vent windows: I think of the evolution of the 1985 to 2001 Jeep Cherokee to see the evolution of vent windows. The 85 Cherokee had movable vent windows. By the early 90's, fixed vent windows were optional. And with the 97 Cherokee, vent windows were replaced with a single window pane. With my 91 Jeep, I have gone from movable vets to fixed vents. I will be moving to the single piece gla

Called the body shop Monday to check if there was any progress on the Monza. Surprise!! Told rust repairs and body work was done. Just a couple more full body block sandings to do this week. I was asked to verify the final color choice this Friday. The Monza was originally red. Thinking hard about using a 2018 Toyota Camry red (Ruby Flare Pearl). Now I need to order required

No. It happened when our cars were 5 years old also. Today, our cars have been used, abused, etc, by an unknown number of "mechanics" and "beginners". Very few of our cars are original and unmolested.

Steve, I remember one of the very early Fan Belt Toss had a great paint job scratched up by the wind on the way home from a soft car cover on an open trailer. Would suggest you not use a cover.
