I own a one-family 1965 Corvair.  It was purchased by my mother in the late Fall of 1964.  Sometime (possibly in the early 1980’s) it was ‘refreshed’ by a well known Corvair shop (mechanic) that lived in SoCal (Riverside, Redlands, or ???). I recall that the mechanic was quite well known and possibly was referenced in a Los Angeles Times article about that time period.Can anyone help in trying to name the mechanic/shop? The question came up because we’re not sure if the valve seats could have been upgraded at that time. The engine has around 90k miles on it since new.Thanks.Steve HammattMount Vernon WA USA
