Tim, GM's Arizona Desert Proving Grounds tests did show higher cylinder head temperatures than the factory was willing to accept. That was known back in 1970/71. As far as the temperature not stabilizing, that was not mentioned in the early 1970's. Perhaps a later embellishment or perhaps someone's interpretation of the actual facts. I had no cooling issues in those early years and drove t

Think next time I need to go to DMV, I will take Anita and tell her to speak only French or Italian. Might be VERY interesting. Of course I will be a mute.

Back when Corvair's we're new, I purchased a new 1969 Monza 4 speed 110 hp. and drove it for 16 years as a daily driver. The 69 was fun and reliable, but over time it requires more attention. By 1977, a Honda Accord took over the family driving duties. The Honda offered double the gas mileage and a host of modern improvemts. By 1983, our family needs had change again and the Corvair moved to 3rd

A passport and a passport card are very much worth having in this post 9/11 world. The passport card is an extra $40 or so when you apply or renew your passport. The passport card is also all you need to travel by land or sea to Canada or Mexico, (I have done both). It is about the same size as a credit card or my California Drivers license and is in my wallet all the time, just like my Calif.

First part of today's article was spot on for me! I was just listening to my better half tell me about all the mistakes her son mas making with his 2 year old! Funny thing also, it to see how you and your wife's point of view will change when you two become grandparents. All of a sudden you two will become just like the rest of us and know everything!!

Drove to the paint shop Saturday morning to inventory all the chrome parts and pieces before they start to put it all back on the car. While there I discovered they needed some clips to hold the front and rear window trim in place. Also got a good look at the condition of some of the chrome. Here is a poor quality picture of the 2 rear cove trim pieces. Even with the poor picture, it is cle

It really did get painted last Wednesday! Glass goes back in Monday or Tuesday. Then paint gets buffed out. After that, all new rubber gaskets to be installed and chrome trim goes back on. It has taken 9 months of waiting and slow progress, but this part of the project is close to finished. Maybe it will be another few weeks?

Craig, A white 1967 Monza coupe owned by a very early Corsa Southern California member in 1970-72 from Santa Maria area. Gorgeous, special order car. Think it was owned by George Gunnison. Less than 4500 miles on it back in 1972. You likely saw this car back in Inglewood.

California issues 2 plates, one for the front and one for the rear. Both plates are have been required by law for a very long time. The front plate is not optional. I got a ticket in late 1968 because I did not have my front plate on just after I painted the car. Actually, I got 2 tickets for it. One in Santa Maria and the distributor gear broke when I tried to restart the car. I left t

Al, For what it is worth. I just measured the I.D. on 2 different 140 hp heads on my shelf, quick and dirty. Both measured just over 96 mm. Also measured a single after market aluminum/steel cylinder I have. The O.D. on the cylinder where it goes into the head was 100 mm. (3.625 I.D.). These were all quick and dirty measurements, with me reading the scale. Battery on the digital rea
