I wonder if there is some relationship between appreciation for the arts, and appreciation of Corvairs (particularly Early models?). Your description of your daughter's interest sounds just like my daughter. When she was 13, she wanted a Corvair like my '62 Monza. We bought a ragged '64 Spyder convertible, which she completely refurbished mechanically (with my help) and has been driving since she got her license at 16 (has put 100 K miles on it). She is now 24 years old. Started college in the Drama program, and switched to Music education. She is getting ready to attend Yale for a Divinity degree.

curiosity of all. It remains her prize possession and her vehicle of

conservatory for performing arts >>
