I would like to put my Corvair in for Corvair of the month. My Corvair is a 1966 Corvair Monza Convertible with 110 engine. This was redone by the previous owner. When he passed away I asked the family about buying it but they wanted to hang on to it for memory sake but I would be the first to get it when they were ready so in the meantime they had another one same year and model but was Tropical Turquoise with aqua interior and a white convertible top that was the son-in-law's aunts car so I had that for 13 years when they said they were ready to let go of this one. I had to get the steering fixed and new tires then I had electronic ignition put in. I found out that the ethanol gas did a number on the carbs and the gas tank and fuel pump so after getting all those replaced it's running very well.

Past Corvair of the Month winner, but have done a few things since the last time I entered. Still needs a paint job, but have replaced the carpet, a number of small interior parts in the correct black (the car was originally red inside), the mechanical clock which I nursed along for 3+ years replaced with Quartz movement, internally-regulated alternator added (with dummy regulator still in place for a more stock appearance) All engine tins powder coated black (except the air exhaust tins) Carburetor tops powder coated gold and modded so custom air cleaners fit without notches in the connecting tubes, all 4 carb tops also modded to remove the old bowl vent casting and some light flash removal inside the bases, had exhaust tip powder coated silver as the cheap paint I used on it kept getting burned off. Replaced balance tube rubber hoses with compression fittings, added Roger Parent's epic Heim joint accelerator linkage.

Older side view. I have replaced the tires with correct diameter tires saving RPMs at speed and the speedometer reads very close to perfect now.

Not that I'm throwing shade.. *wink* but the sweet rampy kinda had the "air" taken out of Corvair. It's a nice water pumper though, don't get me wrong! One more day to vote for a sweet 65 Corsa! :)
