I'm encouraged to see so many "youngsters". Maybe down here in Florida the average age of the whole population is older, but I'm pretty sure the average age of Corvair owners here has got to be in the 60's. Our club has got some new younger members, and I am always trying to get my grandkids involved.

I had to vote today, otherwise I would have to click on a different age range and that is psychologically tough LOL. (Turning 56 next week so today I could click the 46-55 range :clap: )

Hi, I am now at the right age of 72 and my first corvair was a 1961 900 m0nza at the age of 21 when I married and the wife did not like them and we got another car. Well, sorry to say the wife past about 5 years ago and I didn't think I was getting any younger so last year I go my 1968 Monza. Now if I can just get it going enough to just drive around town some it would be nice.... :tu:

Well I got my first Car, my first Corvair at age 16, 1974. Now I'm 57 and got my 2nd Corvair two years ago. They are both Corsa convertibles. 1965's. Never really thought I have a 65 convert again. I'm a happy camper. Hope to get her painted up nice again. I want to do a custom paint job on it. I painted 1995 gmc truck and it came out really good, so I feel good about painting my Corvair . I'll do a two stage paint job with three coats of color.

My dad had a '61 4 door when he met my mom in junior college. They got married in '64 and traded it in for a new light blue '64 coupe. I came home from the hospital in that car in 1969. My parents kept the car around and running until I started driving in 1985. I drove the car through high school and college. Sold it in Texas in 2003 -- had 3 young kids and a tight budget at the time. I'd love to find it again someday. Just last year with my father getting older and not being able to work on his '64 convertible anymore, he gave it to me. I am having the absolute time of my life living in the garage making it roadworthy again!

I see that I'm in the large group (46-55) which doesn't surprise me. What does surprise me is that I have noticed a growing interest amongst the 16-25 age group lately. That's great! I guess coolness is only recognized by the cool, regardless of age.

At 55 I am one of the youngest members of my local club. One Corvair buddy is 51 years old, so that would make him the youngest. I do not see much new interest in Corvairs from the 16-25 age group, locally anyways, let alone any from the next age groups. Wait, I did hear from a guy at a car show a couple of years ago that his 16 year old was getting a 1960 Corvair back on the road. But that seems to be the exception, and he is not a member of the Corvair club. Even the older club members that had children, very few if any of them, ever had an interest in this automobile.

I do not know how I acquired a taste for the Corvair, maybe I like smaller, more unique cars. I guess I really do not run with the herd (Mustangs, Camaros, Chargers, etc.). Back in high school when I was beginning to drive, most of the students cars were from the early to late sixties model years. A lot of 1963 and 1964 Bel Airs and such. No, nobody at my high school drove a Corvair, which is kind of surprising from a class numbering over 400 students.

From what I am seeing my club demographics are pretty heavy in the 65-75 year old range.

Hey knucklehead1,

Do you have any hi-rez pics of your car? I love the way that red looks. I am debating on a candy red or candy blue on one of my cars. I love the way the edges and ridges look on your car.

I am amazed at how many people stop me and share a memory or their first experience with a Corvair or express general interest. I also own other classic cars, but the Corvair seems to generate the most conversations from all ages as I am out and about.

I am sorry to hear about the loss of your wife and the void it creates. I hope that your new found Corvair brings you some enjoyment as I am sure she would want you to be happy. Here is to many miles behind the wheel.
