Drove it this weekend. Got 2nd gear scratch, took it to 4500 rpm in 1st, hit Hwy 101. Sure is a beauty!

2019! Road Candy 65 Corsa 140

Unread post by GasDaddy140 » Mon Feb 12, 2018 1:09 pm

Well finally, good news! I confirmed with the CA DMV this morning that I'll have a JAN 2019 Registration sticker in the mail this week!
This 1965 Corvair Corsa that was decaying in a West Sacramento field for decades-is resurrected.
Albeit there is still a lot of fun work to do.
I'm going to be driving my Corvair.

Baby Got Back.

Hi Jeff and thank You!
Feels pretty darn good to tool the Corvair around the last couple of days and see want happens :) Getting the engine running good on my garage work-table after the rebuild was very motivating for me.

Drove it to work this morning!
