To change oil every 2,000 miles is fine, but to keep the same engine oil in the car for 2 years is NOT a good idea.

Absolutely correct - I forget not all of use live in good year round driving climates.

Also if you store your Corvair for months during the Winter always change the oil and filter just before storage, but after a good run at highways speeds to heat up the engine and get condensation out of the engine case.
