Re: Stolen Corvairs in L.A. Calif. - suspect arrested

The guy who cut it up may or may not be the guy who stole it. Either way, if the chop shop jerk was arrested there should be a mug shot. It would be nice if the picture could be spread far and wide among the Corvair family so we can keep an eye out for the freak should he be snoopin' around again. A...

Re: The 2014 Calendars are ready!

Similar situation here. They don't make it easy for the mail carriers, that's for sure. Cafe Press is on to a great idea but I can't help but wonder if they may have outgrown their business model. I hope you get a satisfactory resolution, somehow. Good luck! :chevy:

Re: The 2014 Calendars are ready!

I got my calendar a few days ago. Thanks! Well done again! Dave, I had an issue with my community mail box deliveries a while back. Hate to be a complainer but sometimes you have to send a message. I contacted the postal service and they responded with a process to deal with constant misdelivery iss...

Re: Stock spare tire rim size question:

I usually do as well Ted. This time I am looking at a stock like restoration. Not sure I have the discipline to pull it off however! I can't help lean toward some sort of improvement or mod. ::-): Wish me luck, eh!!! :cool:

Re: Stock spare tire rim size question:

I think your right Ted. I was also thinking Chevy II as well "-hotrod". Thanks for the input. I will ask around a bit more and If I hear anything different I will post it. For now, it's a swapped out Chevy II rim as far as I'm concerned.... :chevy: The more I think about it, I kinda like it anyway. ...

Re: Stock spare tire rim size question:

Hello Scott. It is an optical illusion, they are 5.5" rims. The spare is a 4.0" rim. I thought the same thing when I first looked at the picture. Thanks Ted. I also have not seen (but must admit I never looked all that close) a thinner rim for a spare on a Corvair. I thought I would include another ...

Stock spare tire rim size question:

I just took off all the old rotting 4 ply poly tires off of the rims that were on my 65 Corsa. I noticed that the spare rim was much narrower than the 4 others. See pic. Is this a stock configuration or did someone slip a non standard spare in while nobody was looking? The car was 99% stock when I d...

Re: Don Yenko Book

I ordered a copy of this book a while back and got a copy about a week ago. I am glad I did and feel that it is a great addition to the Corvair books already out there. Just finished the initial reading and think the book is fantastic! Lots of good info for the "Stinger" fans and just great Corvair ...
