Classic Motorsports is sponsoring the Mitty again this year, April 28th to
May 1st at Road Atlanta.  Not only could a healthy appearance by 'vairs get
us coverage in the mag, but CMS and GRM are now affiliated with SpeedTV's
"Dream Car Garage", another opportunity to get some exposure for our
Corvairs.  Also I believe a co-ordinated showing of 10 cars from a club (ie.
CORSA) garners some extra privledges.

FWIW, My Classic Car was on the island last summer and a group of us went up
to see if we couldn't get a shot of our 'vairs in the episode.  With 850
cars, it's a bit of a long shot, but the chance for exposure was worth the
extremely early wake up time.  It airs the weeks of May 30th and November
28th this year.

I think we should target the "industry" not the Car! Not many are excited
when they hear "Corvair"

We need to find a "show", like "My Classic Car"  that goes to different

an episode showing what it's like for a Vendor of Collector Car Parts. What
they go thru each day, finding parts, having parts made, packaging,
Customer Service......

It would just happen to be a Corvair Vendor......someone like California
Corvairs , Jeff Williams.  He has a fairly new / modern facility....does
parts and
resto work...

He could elaborate on the "Competition", making people aware of the VAST
supply of parts / support.  He could let people know how hard it is for him
keep current on the WEB, with all the Corvair forums / websites ,

All the while Corvairs would be driving up with customers......one person
asking for a RARE   original part, another looking for suspension
parts [disk brake KIT /swaybars / 18" wheels, etc.] An Ultravan
Rampside and a Greebriar......and finally, Richard Aoki in his Rampside with
Blown SBC and SoCal Waterpumpers arrive in force.....get the picture.......

I know this is far fetched.......but in my way of thought.....the ONLY
possibility.......unless we have a member in the Forbes 500  who is willing
bankroll a show. And HORSEPOWER SELLS!
