But you have to do me a favor. I need a photo ofthe electric motor in place for a 65 thru 69. My convertible top installer does not believe this is where the motor sits.

Finding free sites is the trick As was mentioned before, just Google their name and see what pops up. If it jumps to a pay page forget it. You can also use facebook in 5he search bar. If you join Classmates (Seattle based software firm). The cast is not that much Ancestry.com is not free and is speedy, but your local library may have free access. Another source is the family history ce

I went to my 50th reunion at a local Golf Club resort. When I got there all I saw was a bunch of old people. I wonder if it was a practical joke. Actually being a genealogist there are a ton of free places to look. If you want to see if they are residing in the great Corvair junkyard in the sky, I use findagrave.com.

Got one for my 65 added dual MC so I have two blocks. Mine are the 3/16th out because it is a very early 65 (#9). Be careful because they started in late 65with the 1/4 inch lines. I should have known it was no good when I broke the old lines taking it off. Everything is new except the block. Now all is new Got mine from Clark’s MA to OR in 2 days by USPS. Not cheap though $44.00

My 65 Corsa is Glacier Gray with Slate interior. The pin stripe was long gone from a previous paint job. I did a bunch of research and one great resource is I have chosen white because it has a white top. Somewhere I have seen a service bulletin that explains the positioning and the width. I cannot find it right now. The link above explains the correct colors about half way down the p

While traveling to Finland a friend living there in the 1960’s. He said government officials complained the Tatar would roll over going around a corner. The Tatra representative said no way and I will prove it. If it rolls over we will stop importing them to inland. They went to the airport they took it up to speed and spun it around at the end of the runway. Guess what...It rolled over.

Neat topic. I never got my HAM license. My uncle who lived at Bead Lake Idaho got his license in 1922. One of the first. His call sign was WA7 that is all. Later they gave him a longer one. I got my CB license in 1969 went to the bank and got a 100 dollar bill. Went to Lafayette radio in Portland and bought a Lafayette CB radio that was 12v and 110v. It cost $99.99. They gave me one cent

For sure it was made by Gerber Legendary blades in Tigard Oregon. I have one just like it. My sister worked there. She is blind and packaged knives for them. The ultimate oxymoron. They are still in business. I’ll bet they would sharpen it for free if you send it to them

Yikes 1967. Starting in 1966 in California air injection reactor was added and some AC brackets changed. When I talked with Mark Corbin from AirVar I Recall he told me the total number of configurations were 14. He helped me identify the special lower bracket used on a 140 high mount. As others have said. Look in the assembly guide
