Wow. Did a cruise control in my 69 Monza coupe about 1975. Sold by J.C.Penney at the same time they offered the lifetime J. C Penney battery Used both for many years. Not a fan of cruise control for long drives. Find my eyes anticipate hills better than the cruise control.

Dave Newell was the first one to tell me about the "desert Air" K46 package about 1974. As has been posted, that is the oil bath air cleaner, K47 option I have to wonder why people ask premium $$ for cars with non working systems and poor paint

If you are talking about the one Barry Owen had at the back of his trailer, know he sold it. But didn't know what his price was or if this is the same one you are thinking about.

Value is very situational. Depends entirely on your buyer. I paid $2500 for a 2001 Honda Accord with 116k miles 2 months ago from a neighbor who was moving across country. It was in excellent condition, for its age but it is still an old car I will keep it as a spare and buy a much newer or new car as a daily driver. Sell it to a friend as a first car for $1500- 2000. Unfortunately, later

Certain German cars have a sensor that tells the owner when the oil needs to be replaced. These can go to 15k miles between changes ( oil change, not sensor change).

Rented one for Pittsburgh convention. An "SV" version. Drove it on the Economy Run. Best Corvair's got 36 mpg with hyper miling I got over 40 mpg with no hypermiling. No issues with steering or transmission for 9 days. The car just worked for all 3 of us. Much better rental than other choices like a cheap fleet rental Jeep. My humble opinion only. But I do own an old Jeep

Many things have changed in the auto world since the Corvair was first introduced. It used to be that 100K miles was spectacular engine life. Today, 200k miles is a minimum expectation. No matter how abusive the driver is. Emissions requirements have driven this improvement. Software engineer management has vastly improved engine performance and emissions. At the same time, fuel formula

Get Fred Johnson's booklet! No ifs, ands, or buts. Fred was a superb mechanical engineer with a fantastic gift to explain things in VERY clear, simple, language. I was privileged to serve on the CORSA board of directors at the same time as Fred Johnson. Fred was a frequent visitor at my home when his business travel/supervision took him to Rockwell's Anaheim facility. Simply put, Fred Joh

I am as "thrifty" as anyone here about many things, but not with tires. I learned my lesson in the 70's with a set of Firestone 500 tires on my Corvair. When the tires were checked, 3 out of 4 had tread separation while still on the car. Replaced the full set with new, non Firestone tires that day. In June I got my 67 back from 10 months in the paint shop and inspected the tires. Cracks in s

Repost from another thread: There has been a number of people overpaying with regard to the registration fee. The cost is $10 for ANY number of people attending the event on a single registration form. About a half dozen applications have paid the fee on a PER PERSON basis. I have been tracking this and those folks will be refunded the over-payment. It will be in their packets at the Toss.

Long over due update: Got the car home from the paint shop on June 5 and it looks great! First trip in the car was to Costco to fill up the gas tank. But found a locking gas cap on the car and never got a key for it. Just made it back home and into the garage as the engine sputtered, out of fuel. After drilling out the locking gas cap and removing it, I put 2 gallons of gas in the tank an
