Was watching American Pickers this evening, and they visited a fellow in Ann
Arbor MI who had an extensive collection of "bubble cars" - custom cars
built with bubble-tops.  One specifically mentioned was "The Forcasta" which
was noted as being based on a Corvair.  I had never heard of it, and thought
it was interesting.  A bit of poking around, and sure enough, there is a
write-up on it with pictures:

Corvair Monza Bubble Top Custom built by legendary show car builder Darryl
Starbird of Wichita, Kansas in 1961."


Would make an interesting article for the Communique if anyone near Ann
Arbor could look up Rick and go look at the car.
