Nebraska Newbee

Unread post by Bob Roegge » Sat Nov 04, 2017 4:41 pm

I got my drivers license in 1964. My folks bought a new 64 Impala SS convertible. I was campaigning for a Corvair Monza Spyder! Wisely they ignored me. Ever since I have wanted one and after only 53 years one finally followed me home.

Restored 2009-2012 (4,500 miles ago). Came with binder of documentation and receipts. Engine, transaxle and clutch done by California Corvairs. All rubber in car is new, so it is tight and quiet. Not a show car but very respectable none the less. Everything works as new except....heater fan motor is not blowing very strong and the steering wheel has a little play. I will fix those issues soon.

Drove it home 150 miles. Was a real enjoyable trip even with an AM radio.
