Re: 1966 Corsa Convertible Transformation

Ok, it's reveal day. Prepared a fun little video.... we took some video covering the car and after the work was finished, we pulled it off to reveal the new color. Fun. Not sure this format supports that, but if you're out on facebook you can probably find it. Tropic Turquoise!~ Love the color and o...

Re: 1966 Corsa Convertible Transformation

All of it is subject to what the previous owners thought needed to be done. The last lady that owned it thought the power top was too slow, so she replaced the motor. She was a "parade" type, not really an old car enthusiast, so when something struck her, she had it done. The front end is another ex...

1966 Corsa Convertible Transformation

10008477_10201769450745106_519964533_n.jpg Just when we think I have a favorite convertible to keep forever, SOMEONE comes along and has to have it. So I found myself parting with my gorgeous 65 Monza 140hp 4 speed red convertible with custom silver interior. I should have my head examined. With se...

Re: Hidden secrets of a $15k offered Corvair

No, the rust damage wasn't visible without a concentrated inspection. Inside the gas door area, up high and if you leaned over the trunk, put your head upside down, you could find it. If you had a flashlight or very good lighting. Here's the topic, not whether or not our restoration was "worthy" The...

Re: Hidden secrets of a $15k offered Corvair

Roberto, our friend! First, you didn't pay $15k for the car, you paid $12,200 and we refunded you $500. The car was not purchased from Ebay. In our advertisement, we stated that any rust was expertly cut out and welded in, and it was. The fact that a very SMALL spot inside the gas door, up high, was...

But thinning the herd is necessary, as we have 10 right now and some projects to do before cruising season. You...

I seem to have lost the pretty cragars off the turquoise Monza. They look great on the car and it'll be a good excuse to shop for more wheels.
