I've owned both and although I find the LM's sexier and cooler looking (and I appreciate the suspension upgrade of course), I feel that the EM's have a very solid feeling to them, like they used thicker metal or something......probably that full frame around the door glass helps. My EM had 15 X 7 wheels all around, was lowered and handled VERY well.

Gotta vote LM. Timeless styling, superior suspension.

As you can see in the picture above, Early Models emit radiation and it is causing the man in back to keel over. His only defense is to dream of Late Model Trunk Lids to shield himself. Can you see the LM Trunk lid above his head? He will be fine in no time! :rolling:

LM to the rescue.

Just to the right of him (not seen in the picture above) is his only saving grace. A 65 coupe. Yes, it was a close one but he will be ok. :rolling:

I'm not sure what the purple line is? Extreme radiation? :beamup:

I can't vote in this poll because even though the car I learned to drive on my own was a '65 at 14, my first car was a '63 Spyder at 16. The late models are more sporty and have a better IRS, but the earlies have a classic car look. I've got a soft spot in my heart for both, as well as the Greenbriers and trucks too.

LMs are for kids. I have owned 5 Corvairs all of which were EMs. I bought 2 of them new. Some day when I completely loose my sanity I may buy a LM vair but until that day EMs only.

I started off liking only lates, but the earlies have grown on me and I'm just wrapping up the restoration of my first early... a 63 monza coupe with a 102/pg... Maybe I'll report back once I get to actually drive an early for a bit!

So nowadays I like both flavors, and I intend to maintain at least one of each in my "stable" at all times! My driver is a 66' Corsa 140 coupe, I intend to build myself a Spyder coupe within the next year or two. The plan is to keep those two cars long term.. but at 30 years old the longest I've ever kept a car is about 3.5 years so I don't know how likely it is I'll actually stick with those two rather than trade them out every couple years (kinda like my women, except I can't keep getting "newer" model Corvairs! =P).
