What? Here we are, discussing the sadly declining number of CORSA members 
and it turns out that the club has a policy of  NOT allowing members from 
Communist countries?

Considering how the leadership of our own country is going these days, that 
policy might need to be changed, very soon!

I would hope that this outstanding organisation could unite Corvair owners 
around the world, wherever they are.
They need us and we need them!

Thanks for the use of your soapbox, Jay....LOL
