Anchor is a local restaurant in town that hosts car shows regularly, where
I've met a few other Corvair owners.

The white Monza convertible is in pretty good shape, and was an "impulse
buy" since the engine is much quieter than most and of course, it's a
4-speed, but it needs more work than I thought, though relatively minor (so

The Corsa coupe is almost rust free, except the trunk floor, just sun
bleached paint with some chipping, and even the carpets look new.

The rear suspension struts seem to show that it may have had some trauma
during its life though ~

20 minutes out and 20 minutes back in, each, so not bad - I thought it would
be a two-man job, and take a LOT longer!  I got lucky?

The pix should be public?

I will drive my recently acquired 1965 Corvair Monza Convertible in
celebration of the 50th Anniversary.

I just bought a 1965 Corvair Corsa Coupe that was originally sold at
Parkland Chevrolet, Asheville NC.

It has been parked since 1997, when the second owner bought it to use the
140 in his dune buggy and simply discarded the rest of the car, to sit in
the California sun until I bought it the other day.
