Thanks for refreshing my recollection! I hope you can follow up on the Sagan papers at the Library of Congress and find something useful and interesting to share with all of us.  

Good luck with the restoration!

I am restoring the Sagan Corvair (64 Spyder convert).  I appreciate your 
essage and will give the Library of Congress a try after awhile.  It has 
een hard to break into his inner circle but if the papers are made public 
t should be alot easier.  Thank you for the information - I usually listen 
o NPR while working on the car but somehow missed this program. 
ncidentally, the Sagan Corvair is being assembled but rather slowly at this 
oint as it takes alot of bucks to buy everything that this car needs 
interior, top, etc.).  The whole rather silly process is recorded here

 I know that someone on this list is restoring Carl Sagan's Corvair.  My 
 feeble mind can't recall right now just who that is.  Anyway, I was 
 listening to NPR's All Things Considered yesterday and they did a segment 
 reporting that Carl Sagan's papers had just been donated to the Library of 
 Congress.  They interviewed his widow and, apparently like Andy Warhol, 
 Carl Sagan saved everything.  She said his records and papers were so 
 inclusive that they even went back to and included his mother's 
 gynecological medical chart when she was expecting him!  I would bet 
 there's something there about his Corvair.  To the owner/restorer of his 
 Corvair:  give the Library of Congress some time to catalog it and then 
 ask to see if there is anything about the Corvair.
