50 and first Corvair, but have owned a few GM classics previously (and have a '62 Skylark currently).

Mine's a '65 Monza coupe, and I simply fell in love with the looks (and the buy-in price!). Can't wait to get going on this one.

In 1969 I spent my high school summer vacation learning to overhaul and rebuild my first Corvair engine, and later my first Powerglide automatic transmission. I was 16 and my father purchased a sick 1963 Corvair coupe for me to learn on. He provided the tools, garage, and funding for parts and machine shop work. I learned a lot... be sure to follow the guidance in the shop manual. Bag and tag all of the parts so they don't get lost. Take your time and ask questions here on the Corvair Forum if you run into problems.

Good luck with your project car!

WE have a great group of youngsters under 30 here at the North Texas chapter with a 15 year old girl getting an early ready for her sweet 16. She's a superstar and I think they have 4-5 vairs in the family. After hitting 60 this year and having vette's and others, have fallen for the corvair. The Corvair guys are the most down to earth, passionate and sincere group and I am so proud to be part of the club. Get back to turning the wrench with the kids, reminds me of the 60's. Thanks for the survey, and the perfect car to start the young people into the hobby.
