:confused: I was 8 years old when my parents bought their first new Corvair (1961 Monza coupe purchased at Courtesy Chevrolet in San Jose, California). In 1965 they replaced it with a 1965 Corvair Corsa convertible (140 hp).

Image

When I was 16 in 1969 my father bought a 1963 500 coupe with a frozen engine for me to learn on. I rebuilt that engine during my high school summer vacation and in 1972 that engine powered the 1962 Monza coupe that I drove on my wedding day and on our honeymoon.

In the summer of 1973 my pregnant wife and I drove my parent's 1965 Corsa convertible (a gift) from Thousand Oaks, California to our first USAF assignment at Robins AFB, Warner Robins, Georgia.

My 1972 bride and I currently own my tenth Corvair — a 1966 Corsa convertible (140 hp). I will be 68 in December. :oldtimer:

Oh well being in the 76+ group isn’t so bad..... I’m still standing and even after stage four cancer, I have something to look/plan/enjoy my 66 Monza coupe. Had a 65 Monza Convertible a few decades ago and it was fun to drive and a good chapter with folks who also enjoyed their vehicles. Now if I can last another 20+ years to fully wear it out that would be OK.

I have been a corvair fan since I was a tot. My father loves these cars and that enthusiasm made me a believer. The stories of his Judson supercharged 61 monza club coupe and later 64 spyder convertible made a lasting impression on me. My father is 77 and I am 48. My first corvair was a 65 corsa coupe with a 180 turbo. I purchased that car when I was 14. At 15 I purchased a 66 monza 110 PG. The monza was my daily driver. The corsa was to be restored. I was never able to finish that car and it was sold. There is a thread about that car on the forum. It's the black corsa from Anchorge,AK. The monza was driven for years, put over 300,000 miles on that car.
Years later I had to have another, so I found a 61 monza coupe and realized my dream of a full resto with the help of my father. It has been a great project for the both of us. Many hours in the shop with my dad, loving every minute of it. The result is something I am very proud of and my dads contribution makes it even more special.
