Did you notice any Corvair "transplants"? I didn't see any BMW bubble cars, Isetta, 600, 700. Do you know if the VW guys reach out to them?

Just found out today the Kelmark adapter I bought is probably for a sbc instead of the hoped for 215. Is that an Art Silva adapter? Wish I'd thought to ask you to make tracings of the faces and measurements for the depth while the drivetrain was apart. Were the previous pistons flat tops or pop ups? Could you have retained the previous pistons by using the 300 aluminum heads with the 54cc com

I bought the Kelmark adapter Jim Stukenborg advertised here a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, neither of us were able to identify it. My Kelmark catalog shows ten different adapters were cast, 5 each for 1964-5 and 1966-69 transaxles. There were no numbers cast or stamped in the adapters, so after searching Google images, I believe this one is for a Chevy V-8. Space between the upper two bolts is 8

I got to the Pittsburgh convention motel Thursday morning, and in the upper parking lot near the vendors was a bronze or firethorn lm two door, a mid-engine with a Corvair engine in the back seat area. I kept hoping to run into the owner and ask how it handled, compared to a stock car. After that day, the engine cover was in place and I didn't get any photos. Is the owner on the forum, or does

The wheels I want to buy only come 15" X 5 1/2", and I need to use at least a 1" adapter for the bolt pattern. Going on a '66 coupe with stock springs and drum brakes, can anyone tell me the "et" I need to request from the foreign manufacturer? Scott '65 Corsa basket case '66 Monza coupe

In 1977, I told the Air Force I was ready for a worldwide assignment. The Corvair build was finished, and I wanted to see more of the world than North Dakota. Go SAC! (The North Dakota state bird is the mosquito; the N.D. state tree is the telephone pole.) Unfortunately for me, the new assignment was a hole in the wall unit in West Germany. When a sergeant from the unit picked me up at the t

So are you registered for Cruisin' the Coast? I went to Air Force tech school in Biloxi, and the October show is on my bucket list. I just got back from the Street Rod Nats in Louisville, and my hotel raped me like we were at a NASCAR race - my fault, waited too long to make a reservation. Do you know if the hotels along the coast do the same?

I've checked Sssnake-oyl, Seatbelt Planet, three or four others that showed up on a google search for Aztec bronze seatbelt webbing, no luck. Also checked Chevelle and Impala parts suppliers, no luck. Anyone know of a source for new bronze webbing? Scott '65 Corsa basket case '66 Monza coupe

Off topic a bit, about Bring-A-Trailer. If you subscribe to Barn Finds, does BAT block you somehow? I've requested to subscribe, and it never works. I've even gone so far as to use separate e-mail addresses for the two of them, nothing seems to work. Any ideas?

My corner dash vents came back from the platers, didn't go well. Does anyone know if the vent bezels from the 1967-'68 Camaros are the same, or can be used as a good substitute? Look very similar in the catalog. Also wanted to ask before I spend the money, if I use a 1" spacer/adapter, do I want 3 1/2" backspacing on the wheel?

Hiding in a notebook pocket was the report on Solar's Kelmark V-8 conversion reported in the July 1974 issue of HOT ROD. This must be the dash Robert reported in CAR CLASSICS?

I've been trying to get my Corvair literature and magazines better organized, and when I came across the March 1974 issue of MOTOR TREND, had to stop and read the article on the Solar Cavalier. That's the issue that fostered my love of Cosmic wheels. I'd totally forgotten the Cavalier was also reviewed in the August 1974 issue of CAR CLASSICS magazine. There, the author, Robert Hegge, mentions

I have the Yenko and Thomas catalogs, just wondered if any other Chevy dealers pushed Corvair performance as they did with V-8 COPO cars. Perhaps the early Corvair Club newsletters would have more information? I have a number of the CORVAIR COMMUNIQUES, but from 1965 and newer, does anyone have older issues?
