The American Racing Phantom B.... :drool: :drool: :drool:

As an old vair friend (my vair "dealer" if you will) used to say "vadden vadden..." I have no IDEA what that means but he'd say it when something was cool as hell!

Check that page out. It's pointed to wheels that will fit a LM Vair. Lots of stuff but that particular rim is only black/machined.

Thats what I thought, I looked and didnt see anyother color. Pretty nice rim, I dont like 95% of new design rims. Most are fugly. And as a general rule I think 5 spokes look the best, depending on the design.

agree'd on the fugly opinion! Holy crap what are people thinking spending that kinda $$$ on those things!!

I LOVE these tho! And yes 5 spokes are more "matching" if you will to the culture and era of the car.

WOOT!! All four brakes installed and re-built!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now... I actually don't know how to fill the master and bleed it down properly. Well ok filling the master cylinder is as easy as falling off a log but what the proper procedure is... that's the question.

And whilst anybody answers the brake bleed question.

Thoughts, opinions, and insight on how to take apart the steering? No amount of hammering has managed anything but freeing the inner tie-rod end on the passenger side.

Everything here is Corvair... except the white Gabriel Ultra shocks.. those are for my Isuzu Hombre.

It's all destined for the 66 Corsa and the 68 500

Since it appears that the steering arms have no intentions of releasing the outer tie-rod ends anytime soon....

Have you been using the little tie rod end tool that tightens down on it (screws down) and then whack it with a hammer?

haha. I got em out but it was torch-force... I didn't know about the tool until about a week after the fact... oh well. Once I gave it heated it just slightly.. they popped right out.

They made all years from September of the preceeding year until July of the next year. Your car was really built in Nov of '65.
