I hadn’t driven my Vair since picking it up from my paint and body man in mid-august. Didn’t even know if the battery had been drained.
Been sitting in the enclosed carport gathering dust.
I got in, turned the engine for 30 seconds. Key off. hit the gas 3 times. Key on----VROOOOM!
Wife says “where are you going to go on your drive?”
Step 1---TO THE CAR WASH! Got her clean again, and took about a 30 mile drive through the foothills. Stopped at a Convenience store to get a soda, and 4 different people commented on my car, or asked questions.
I should get my car out of the carport more.
Toying with the idea of cleaning it up good tomorrow, and taking it to a show at the Ford dealer in Gastonia on Saturday AM.
I’ve always said that a Corvair is the most fun car to drive that there is. It’s why I got into the hobby in the first place. My Monza didn’t disappoint me today. It was a BLAST.
Want to once again say Thanks to Matt Nall, Rich Shepard, and all the VV members who anted up the cash to get the car shipped from CA to NC ----that was 12 years ago if anyone can believe that!
