Robo has an axe to grind with me. I know why, not the place to discuss, but a bit of maturity might be in order.

Nearly all cars have a space saver spare nowadays. Meaning, we've all most likely have had to use them at one time or another. Given the millions of cars on the road with these things, the liability issues have been cleared by now.
One advantage Corvairs have, they typically don't weigh as much as modern cars, improving the safety markedly.

What deadly advise did John offer?
He offered three sources to read about space savers so one could do

savers, therefore a matched set.
You are talking about one space saver, that is the intended use, and
therefore not what the Car and Driver article addressed.
