This is not JUST  in Corvairs.....the average person retains approx. 5%  of 
what they're exposed to....visual / aural / reading.

Then there's the "lack of TITLE / Paperwork"    No matter how successful you 
may be at XXXXX    if you do not SELF PROMOTE.....you are at the bottom of the 
list.....sad but true...

Then there's the "it'll cost a lot to HAVE SOMEONE ELSE FIX IT FOR ME"...so 
surely it's a simpler problem than XXXX  told me....

That's what I love about buying cars with "Big"  problems......almost always 
the total bill is far less than the estimate.....vs  buying something  
supposedly perfect....
