Vintage: The Chevrolet Corvair | Drive it!

In 1959 the Corvair became the first rear-engine production car made in America - and Chevrolet's answer to the VW Bug. By American standards, the Corvair was very small (4.50 meters long) and unusually light (weighing around 11 hundred kilos). Drive it! discovered a number of specimens of what is a very rare American in Europe. More Information: http://www.dw.de/program/drive-it/s-9690-9798

Vintage: Nissan Figaro FK10 | Drive it!
Tokyo 1987: the young automotive designer Shojhi Takahashi dreamt of creating a car in the style of the 1960s, but chock full of modern technology. He lucked out and won a design competition sponsored by Nissan.The first prototype of the Figaro was presented at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1989. At the trade fair, Nissan already decided to yield to the demand of countless would-be buyers, and 16 months later a small series of 20,000 was built for the Japanese market. Very few of them ever made their way to Europe. But Drive it! Found one that did. Read more: http://www.dw.de/dw/episode/9798/0,,15879134,00.html

Mid-Engine Crown Corvair: Porsche Cayman Fighter - /BIG MUSCLE
Owner: • Chuck Rust Wouldn't it have been great if the United States had one truly great mid-engine sports car? I mean yes, there was the Ford GT40, Ford GT and of course the Pontiac Fiero (that sucked though), but just imagine if American manufacturers really had their act together and created something awesome. Chuck Rust, the owner of this 1965 Corvair Crown V8, knew that the little Chevy had great potential and that with A LOT of work (and some ingenuity), it could be turn into something outstanding. This car is about fun, performance and proving people wrong. It sounds outstanding, has some of the best lines out there, and thanks to a little funky paint and graphic work from its' owner, has a presence that few cars can match. One of the most well balanced performers we've ever driven, this Corvair Crown had us grinning from ear to ear from the first moment we turned the key.

It features a 300 horsepower 4.3 Liter V6 that runs counter clockwise, and the firing order just happens to be 1-2-3-4-5-6! There is also no "Park", only reverse and drive.

1965 Corvair Corsa Convertible 4 speed Turbocharger Original Unrestored Car
Nice clean original Corvair. Picked it up for one of the car guys I know. It is NOT FOR SALE. But I wanted to share this one for sure. Many car guys have not seen one, some don't even know they did these with a turbo. I have owned several Corvairs in year past, but this is the first running, working, second series Corvairs that I have had the chance to get my hands on. The 1965 to 1969 Corvairs had fully independent suspension making them a fantastic handling car. Nadder had no clue how to drive--- True the first series Corvair had swing axle rear, just like the VW beetles had. But second series had true independent rear just like Corvette... Yep, there, I said it.. Enjoy!
