Generally, a "Survivor" class is for unrestored 
vehicles....................cool huh? Especially when you consider Eric's 
car is very much like the Johnny Cash song "One Piece at a time". Actually, 
all those pieces are survivors................60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 
As for attention getters. Last night I went to a huge Cruise night in Akron 
NY with the Rat Rod Corvair Convertible I recently picked up from Eric's 
brother. Parked next to a beautiful 65 Impala, I was out taking pictures for 
quite awhile and came back , the guy next to me commented he had never seen 
so many people flock around a car like they did to the primered Corvair 
convertible. And everyone walked right past his car..............
While I was there it was a constant stream of questions, and a lot of the 
usual "I had one of these"..........
