If it's not too intrusive, please define "very reasonable".

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 see the speaker grill on the right side door, but where's the multiplex unit that goes under the center ashtray?

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?

Anyone have experience using Fastenal's shipping service? I'd been told their prices are low compared to other carriers, but the counter person at the facility I use had no experience either. Is it worth it to chase down the parts at the terminal when they arrive? )

The Cox Dan Gurney 1966 Galaxie slot car sells for over $3,000 MIB. The Tamiya Galaxie sells for a little more.

During the opening of the Corvair Museum last weekend, a placard piqued my interest. Above the display of the aluminum brake hubs similar to the Pontiac 8 lugs, it claimed a Corvair floor console had been planned for introduction in 1966. I have Dave Newell's book, don't remember it being mentioned there. Do any drawings or photos exist? Was it (the same or) similar to the Nova console?

Lots of coming and going, I counted 55 Corvairs displayed in the parking lot. There were at least three late models that had a nose high attitude as discussed here. Great job by the host chapter, especially Mike Hall.

Craig, I fell in love with Cosmic wheels after reading the report about and pictures of the Solar Cavalier in the March 1974 issue of MOTOR TREND. They're still being made for, of all things, Volkswagens. I recently wrote the vendor to see if a Chevy bolt pattern might be available in 15" wheels. The answer was negative, so I'm back to my plan to cut the back off 13" Cosmics and screw them to

Dale, I understand the window in the speedo is probably for an odometer, but for what is the window in the tach face used? Scott

Are those Vega GT wheels? I thought the bolt pattern was different from earlies? Owner would have had to redrill hubs, axles, drums. Lot of dedication there.

Wondered if anyone knows of a spray can color that is a close match to evening orchid paint for a model? I'm aware of companies that will mix and fill a spray can for you, trying to keep this a cheap project.

Perhaps the above referenced letter is balanced by an article by David Conwill in the same issue, page 40. In it, he writes "Spend much time around them {Corvair owners} and you'll a.) wonder why you don't have a Monza in the garage already, and b.) wonder why anyone bought a Chevy II when the Corvair is such a wonderful car." Expect to see your complaint letters in the next couple of issues,

Thomas and ck_vair, I stopped at an Advance Auto Parts to get their recommendation for putting a fiberglass hood scoop on a steel hood. They said Maxim 100813 by Evercoat was a popular choice. The medium set gives 30-40 minutes working time; 90-120 minutes clamp time; 8 hours cure time. I planned to run aluminum strips along the edge to clamp the scoop to the hood; after the epoxy has cured,

I just came across this model, search didn't show a previous posting. I have no connection to the company and have not assembled the model, so cannot vouch for its quality. Pricey! Good luck, Scott.

I think International Harvester went the Pontiac route, using half a V-8 to create a slant four cylinder in the initial offerings of the Scout. Scott

Cody, I was somewhat reluctant to call it an invoice, to me, that connotes much more information that what was presented on this sales record. The dealer called it a CAR INVOICE, so I included that, even though it doesn't have all the information yours has. It's on the way to Dan, he can scan and display it when it arrives. Scott

I checked with Addco, Hellwig, and Clarks, none list a front bar for a LM. Where does a person purchase a bigger front bar for a '66 Monza? Thanks for all the insights on Corvair handling. My only experience with adding bigger bars is a '66 Galaxie, and aftermarket bars absolutely transformed the way that car handled; just hoping for the same improvement with my Monza. Apples to oranges, I gu

Not sure where I picked this up, probably a parts car, I have a sales record from Perry Motor Co. (listed as CAR INVOICE) for a 1966 Corsa coupe sold 9/10/66 in Elizabeth City, N.C., as a demo. In nice shape, e-mail me and I'll mail it out to you. 7litrescott AT tds DOT net Won't be able to acknowledge request until this evening. Scott
