Go to youtube.com,

Type in the search box the words Corvair and Hagerty, the video link

Snow. Not yet here. I drove mine today to the parts store to get brake 
pads for one of my daily drivers. Of course it sits out all year 
anyway.... Not a "show" car, but goes to a lot of shows.....

I should try Stabil, as I do not drive the 66 when salt is around, so I 
am usually taking the carbs apart to remove "stuff" in the spring.
