1962 Greenbrier camper conversion, long gone but miss it.
1965 Monza 140 hp coupe. Also gone but not forgotten.
1965 Corsa Turbo convertible. Bought as a basket case, built to 80% completion and then, in a fit of lunacy, sold.
1969 Monza convertible. I will be acquiring this one in April 2003 and renewing my Corvair relationship after a 30 year hiatus.
More about myself:
I've grown up with Chevrolets and was employed in the service department of the local dealership for 20 years. During that time I had several Corvairs and was a member of the Bakersfield Corvairs for some of that time. Cureently I own a medium size Auto Body Shop and am still actively involved with custom cars. The current fleet consists of a 1951 Ford Victoria (Chevy 350 powered)50's style custom, a 1956 Chevrolet Cameo pickup with a Camaro subframe, 468" big block, 700R4 overdrive, narrowed 9" Ford rear end and lots of other modifications (This is still under construction). Other vehicles include and 1968 Camaro under construction and a 1969 Impala Custom coupe. All I really need is another project but I couldn't pass this latest one (the 1969 Monza convertible) up. The car has been in storage since 1993. It currently is powered by a 40,000 mi. 110 hp engine but comes with a complete rebuildable Turbo motor, 3 turbos, several heads, carbs, lights, trim etc. etc. With only 521 of these being produced and quite a few less with 4-speeds, this car is a rare piece. It's previously had the Turbo motor installed and currently has front disc brakes so it's not a numbers matching car but has the potential to be the best of all possible Corvair worlds. I'm really jazzed about the project.
