Thanks for the welcome!
To those who mentioned it, I was aware that the 2012 Corsa convention is
being held in Sturbridge, Mass (I just learned this a week or two ago!)
and am thrilled. I did attend the convention in Washington, DC in 1991
before falling off the Corvair radar for a long time. I just took some
"before" pictures of the car as it exists today and put them up here:
My first tech question.... it appears that I lost my key to the car over
the years. I was unable to jimmy either door open with a coat hanger
today. Any suggestions as to getting into the car?
The interior shots are through the windows and the one that looks like a
tree is growing inside is just a reflection off of the glass.
As you can see, it needs a lot of work. Getting it in a movable form to
take to the 2012 convention is a tall order, unless I tow it there
partially restored. :)
Also, this may be a Massachusetts-specific question, but when I bought
the car, I had a hand-written bill-of-sale from the seller. I can't find
it. How best to get a title for the car?
I've been amassing a series of books and manuals, some for the second
time, since I can't find the ones I bought 20 years ago. I've got the
shop manuals, the assembly manual, "How to Keep Your Corvair Alive" and
"Classic Corvair" all of which I have been poring over with great interest.
