    Possibly photoshopped
    Looks cool regardless

    Okay guys,
    I've changed my mind on the Photoshop thing. The blue car is legit. It has the proper 4 lug wheels and is probably bagged.
    The red car, witch looks great is more likely photoshopped. First the 5 lug wheels. The spindles could have been modded. If you look at the front tires you will se if that car it a bump with the wheel turned that fender would be fouled and a tire toasted.
    All that said they both have the look.

    Bagged early models have "the look". I really dig 'em.

  10. Speaking of cool early models...I really like this one. I am not sure what to think about the skirts, but like everything else. I know nothing about it other than found the pic while researching other stuff I was trying to learn about my 63...

    The skirts are a definite no-go. My opinion. Then again, so are the spotlights.

    Well this is funny guys, the blue car with the chrome slots is the same one with the skirts and spots. Not sure of the time line but the slots without the skirts is more to my taste. Just needs to ditch the spots. The goofy aftermarket antenna is in both pics as well.

    We have seen some cool slammed vairs in the last few posts and I think they look great. I totally dig Corvairs and the EM are my favorite. That being said I am not a fan of bagged setups in a vair.
    Bagging a Corvair will require a fair amount of fab and weight. If you just want to cruise the go for it. That's not me.
    If I was to make a major mod to the suspension I would go with a coil over setup. Gurthrie1068 has a great example.
    For now I will deal with my cut coils. 2 in the front 1 in the rear.

    A 1973 photo. The Corvair belonged to a friend but I'm not sure on the year.
    Went from Illinois to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin and then out to South Carolina.
    Those are not rally wheels but plain 14x7 steelies.

    This was actually pretty kool. Someone installed a mid engine
    small block Chevy in it. I couldn't get close to the interior to
    take a pic, that's how many people wanted to check it out. I
    fixed the paint and filled in trim holes to neaten it up (photo-wise).

  21. If anyone is looking for an inexpensive easy project for some summer fun, I am trying to unload my 63 convertible in the classifieds...

    No showing disrespect here...the USS Nader, that's not nice.
    That's cool..!

    I KNOW how the cars handled, Not sure about a boat, but it's still cool.
