I have heard that Mel Raven is semi-retired (he recently turned 70). He may also be aware of other Corvair mechanics and Corvair activities in the Bay Area. His website is still active, so if you need his services you would have to contact him to find out about his availability or if he has any references to other northern California Corvair mechanics...

Thank you for your warm welcome and all the excellent contact information. Most kind! Gladly - I have this trip and then another in February - so will try to make the very best of my time. Right now - need to board flight! Many thanks once more.
I did go to see Mel last time I was in Santa Clara and saw more Corvairs that day than I have seen in my entire life time! So again, thanks for the recommendation. I am back in Milpitas again, so will see what mischief I can get up to.
We are working on doing more Corvair get together a in the Bay Area. We did one a few weeks ago on Treasure Island. Had seven Corvairs show up. We are working on one for March, but the Spring Fling is at the end of April in Roseville. This year it is going to be a four club participation. Classic Corvairs of River City, SF Bay Area Corsa, Silicon Valley Corsa and San Joaquin Valley Corsa. Hope to see you around!
