  • One for corvair Jim....

    look the homes where this guy lives and you will understand how he could afford this toy.

      I've been on the lookout for a basket case (or any case!) Crown Corvair for years now. That is on my short list of cars I want to own and drive some day. I'm concerned I might not get in and out, they do sit low and why I like my Abarth right now, but the dream still lives! I think I would want a bit less exotic engine, a crate 350 should do but even a mild 283 or 302 would be plenty, they originally were built with 327. I've heard of big blocks but I think that would be way more than necessary for the purpose, especially for a rallye / road racer focused on handling.
      The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

      Thank you for your understanding.

        Hell yeah! I don't understand wasting a Corvair by putting a V-8 in front, but one with a mid-mounted V-8 is a great-handling sports car. Think DeTomaso Pantera or Ferrari 308 on a shoestring budget, but one that can be driven reliably on a daily basis (with suitable sound deadening and an appropriate engine cover, of course!). I want to build one of my own some day. Thanks for posting this, buddy!
