Event History

Each year since in 2009 we celebrate the 50th anniversary of another model year Corvair. Corvairs officially went on sale in October of 1959 so 50 years later in October of 2009 we especially encouraged owners of any 1960 Corvairs to attend our show at Thorobred Chevrolet . All Corvair related vehicles were welcomed but we gave special attention to the 1960 models because they were official 50 years old.

This year we will prominently display the 1967 models that officially become 50 years old in October. As before, all Corvair related vehicles are welcome to attend the show but we will specially feature any 1967 models that attend. We have a Wayne 100 Corvair powered boat and a Corvair powered helicopter scheduled to attend.


This is a charity event. Last year we collected $100 and several trunk loads of food that were donated to needy families. The public is encouraged to attend for free and vote for their People's Choice.

Last chance reminder. Weather is looking perfect for a show tomorrow. Upper 70's in the AM and not hitting the 90's until after we are sitting down for a nice lunch at LaFamila's after the event.

Hope to see some of you there!

REPORT:

We had 20 Corvairs this year including a Lakewood, three FC's and an even mix of EM and LM cars. The "Best in Show" winner was an incredible, pure stock Canadian built 66 Corsa 180.

We collected a couple of trunk loads of food for the local food bank along with some cash too. The sun was a bit warm but we lucked out weather-wise because the next day it rained almost the entire day, which is rare this time of year in Phoenix.


Here are a few shots. More detailed pictures are at the link below.

Looks like a lot of fun! I'd like to try one of these as soon as I have a Corvair that could safely make the run.

Three Corvairs did arrive and depart on trailers. ::-):

Luckily, no cars driven to the event required a tow home afterwards.

Yeah.... No on the trailer my car places...

Once the red one is stabilized and running smooth, I will be attending as many events as I can fit in.
