Anybody who wants to speak to the CORSA volunteer staff of CPF can do so
directly.  Contact CPF President Mike Hall at mrhvair at aol.com or
217-494-7105.  Mike is at the top of that particular Org chart.  He and the
other volunteers are responsible for the CPF items in several museum
locations plus those in storage in various locations.  

Another topic.  While messing around in my garage last week I found a tool
bag I use to carry when I was autocrossing.  In it were 3 Corvair fan belts.
They are at least 10 years old, loose and fully uncoiled in the canvas bag.
One is a toothed belt, the other two are not.  Never been used.  Anybody
have a SWAG on their life expectancy or usefulness today?   Keep or pitch?  


Historically Yours,

Subject: <VV> Dealer Sales kits

As you likely will remember, the Chevrolet sales/marketing arm used to
prepare sales kits that they would frequently send to the dealers that
contained  sales pitches, sales points and loads of information that the
dealer sales  people could use to pitch the Chevrolet products. These kits
usually contained a  35 mm film slide show (the dealers all had the
machines),  a phonograph  record or other audio device and lots of pamphlets
containing data,  instructions, selling information, comparisons between
competitive products and on and on. 
Well it turns out that I have some 31 of these sales kits in my stash that
I must clear out. Most of these kits are unmolested but have been previously
opened. Some may be missing a few of the pamphlets but most are intact.  All
of  these kits directly address selling Corvairs during the golden years.
Is anyone interested in obtaining these kits? I would think that the kits
all should be kept together as group but they could be separated too. Maybe
the  Corvair Museum might be interested if they don't already have a similar
collection. Anybody on VV  who might speak for the Museum?
