Default The Infamous Corvair

Still a lot of collectors of these cars whose demise came at the hands of Ralph Nader. Here's a customized V-8

Great pictures Walter. Thanks for sharing. A friend way back when a Corvair (last gen.) with 4 X 1 bbl carbs....beautiful car, but would throw fan belts...had a convolouted journey...those Corvair fan belts...another buddy drove a Corvair pickup for a Chev dealer...they used it to deliver parts.

Thanks, lesmore49. I see a fair number of Corvairs in this area, considering that they stopped making them nearly 50 years ago.

Your welcome Walter. I've always like the Corvair, especially the later models, particularly the Spyder. I've always thought it was a bit maligned.

I never had one, but spent a good amount of time in a friends sporting Corvair...2 door HT, 4 carb engine, 4 speed. It was one of the last (68-69) and I recall how beautiful it was and what a sporting car it was...handling and acceleration.

Great series, Walter...!
