Yeah, but it's kinda nice to fall in love with them all over again each spring. I'm actually looking forward to reacquainting myself with my boots, wool socks, heavy coat, gloves, balaclava, snow shovel, and - oh, heck, who am I kidding? You're right, @MoparMan , it's a shame! 🙄
Your Corvair is all the way cool and your custom exhaust is sweet. It's a world away from my sister's red 1960 with little to no heat when she gave me rides to school in Illinois winters. Your interior shot brings back memories of the flat floor that I forgot about. Keep driving as is and I hope you got better heater output than sis had in hers!
God made Subarus? Sheesh, don't tell my niece that. She already worships hers (and all it's predecessors) as if they are deities. There'd be no living around her if she found out she is right! 😁
Whoa, whoa - I wasn't digging on the man, or asking you to dig on me, either. I actually know very little about him - and you will not find any comments here where I've disparaged him or claimed he did anything wrong. Please don't confuse me with some of the other commenters - mine was a legitimate question: was he a hero? No need for your last sentence, friend. I'm neither on your side nor against you, @Inline8OD . If you wish to educate me, fine. If you wish to challenge me, I got no time for you.
No need to get that angry with other Hagerty Community users. Let's focus that on the industry shills that get paid to take people's criticisms, @Inline8OD.
Man, I'm learning all kinds of stuff about these little cars. Including that there are a LOT of passionate people out there when it comes to the whole Corvair story (both pro and con). At the very least, though, it has spurred me to do several things: talk to my friend who has one and get him to show me some of the details under the bonnet that I've never paid much attention to; watch a few YouTube videos and/or other online resources to get a better handle on how Corvairs are designed and how they work; and probably add Nader's book to my reading list.
I come to this venue for several reasons, not the least of which is entertainment. But certainly, learning new things about topics which pique my interest is on the list. The talent of either the article authors or member posters is often the deciding factor in the level of interest I muster up. You, @Kyle , are pretty doggone good at using your talent to get me hooked. Who knew I would ever get interested enough in Corvairs to actually begin making a list of resource materials to find so I could be more educated about them? 👍
