Newbie 60 700. 61 Lakewood and 66 Monza

Post by Holyroller »

Started at 16 with my first car 60 700 three speed . My wife and had our first date in that car and two years ago I found the same car in San Diego on Craigslist .31 years later and seven kids. I’ve been restoring it since as well as acquiring a Lakewood and a 66 so I have one of each. Doing three at once is a lot of work but fun.

Nice collection you have there! LM and wagon don't look like they need much attention.

It is amazing how a Corvair can lead to so many life-changing events! :tu: :clap: :welcome2: :wave: Welcome to the Corvair Forum!

My parents bought their first new Corvair in 1961. I was 8 years old and at 16 took my first driver's license test in a 1965 Corsa. I also met my future bride while driving a Corvair — in my case in 1971. 48 years into our marriage, 3 children, 3 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren later, we still are driving around in two Corvairs (1966 Corsa convertible and 1966 Monza 4-door sedan)!


The link below will provide you with a list of useful websites that are Corvair-related. Some of the links will lead you to an extensive technical library that will allow you to download shop manuals and other technical references in Adobe Reader format at no cost. There is also a link that will help you to locate nearby CORSA (Corvair Society of America) club chapters. You will also find a list of essential Corvair parts suppliers. Clark's Corvair Parts in Shelburne Falls, MA is the biggest and oldest Corvair supplier in the world. You will find a link that can provide you with a series of videos that amount to a tour of the Clark's Corvair Parts facilities. Parts suppliers such as this truly make our Corvair hobby possible.
