Hey guys! I just had an idea here, and hope it will catch on. I don't imagine I'm the only one who looks at those signatures and wishes there were pictures available of all those cars. Even more so with the tiny Avatar images when there's an interesting looking car there with no way to get a closer look.

Post pictures of your Corvairs here, especially those you list in your signature or your forum avatar. You could even add a link to your post in this thread to your signature if you are so inclined. ::-):

Josephine- 66 Corsa 140: 280 Isky cam, .060 over forged pistons, milled heads, ultimate headers 1/8" over LeVeque carbs, Snow Performance Water injection (not yet installed). This was my daily driver for eight years or so, but it's been parked for a while due to an oil pressure problem. I plan to tear down the engine in 2018 and also think I'm going to strip her down and repaint her yellow.

Maybelline- 65 Corsa Turbo: Should be a fairly easy restoration, just need to get the money saved up for the body work. Needs rust repair to passenger door jamb and below windshield, diff (I have two on hand), interior, and paint. Came from California and in excellent condition for the most part.

Pearl- 64 Monza Convertible: Red on white, 4 speed, purchased from P/O who had an engine fire and seized the engine. This is my current project and I hope to have it on the road next summer. I need a 64 engine lid and nose trim bar. I have a 102 HP engine to put in it and missing some brake parts. Pretty decent car overall. I plan to sell this one after it's done to buy a Spyder convertible project.

Rose- 61 Monza Coupe with AC: My wife's Corvair. This was also our wedding car, though due to really bad luck we had mismatched front/rear wheels on our wedding day. :sad5: This car is in amazing condition. No rust issues anywhere, perfect underneath and everywhere else. Needs dents fixed, new paint, and could use an interior refresh since we aren't the "patina" loving sort. :neener:
