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: NSU RO 80 | drive it!
It was Europe's Car of the Year when it was introduced, and a flop with car
buyers. But in many respects, the innovative NSU Ro-80 was years ahead of
its time.When NSU, traditionally a maker of small cars, introduced the
Ro-80 in 1967, the company hoped to establish itself in the market for
up-scale mid-sized cars. The Ro-80 was powered by a 1-liter rotary engine
that produced 115 hp. It had front-wheel drive, four-wheel independent
suspension, disc-brakes on all four wheels, and a clean and distinctive
aerodynamic shape. Unfortunately, the rotary engine initially had major
reliability problems and the car was never a success. Even so, its timeless
design and many innovations make it a true milestone in automotive history.
Vintage! GLAS GT | Drive it!
It looks like a Ferrari, but hails from a small town in Bavaria: the GLAS
GT. Hans Glas first produced farm machinery in Dingolfing, but in the 1950s
he branched out into motor scooters and small cars like the Goggomobil.
Later he created the sporty GLAS GT, which featured an Italian-made body.
Drive it! meets Uwe Gusen, who owns two rare GLAS GTs. One is a 1700 GT
coupe and the other a 1300 GT convertible, of which just 363 were ever
made. More Information: http://www.dw.de/program/drive-it/s-9690-9798
Vintage: Cisitalia 202 | Drive it!
The Cisitalia 202 Gran Sport is to this day a pioneering example of a
stylish automobile. Following up on the racing version, in 1947 the first
road-going Cisitalia was launched in both convertible and coupé form.Its
engineering is essentially from Fiat; the transmission, suspension and
engine were all borrowed from the trusty Fiat 1100. Read more on:
Vintage - The Alfa Romeo Montreal | drive it
1966 marked the dawn of the story of the unique Alfa Montreal.Its makers
demanded only one thing of the 200 horsepower 8-cylinder beast:
to showcase what Alfa was capable of. Its racing chassis was borrowed from
the 33 and first had to be tamed for regular roads. Ulrich Pfeiffer has
been living the Alfa Montreal dream since 1972. He is one of just 187
registered owners of the cult car.

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!
1965 Corvair Corsa with a Crown Engineering V8 conversion
I have owned this car since the early 1980's. It was a lifetime dream to
own and build this car. This car is beautiful. From a distance it appears
as a stock Corvair with a few modifications. However, it is far from stock.
This car is also not a luxury car. It is more in the lines of a race car
for the street. The car has been driven less than 200 miles during my
ownership. The body was completely restored about 10 years ago. The body
panels were replaced with fiberglass panels. The only steel that remains on
the car is the doors, rear cove, and roof. The wheel wells, trunk area and
floors have all been done in aluminum. The engine is a small block Chevy
from a 1966 Chevy II factory rated at 275 hp. The car has been sitting for
a few years and does have a few small leaks. I did just replace the
carburetors with new Holley 600 with vacuum secondaries. It has a Saginaw
4 speed. One last thing, It's FAST!
It is now for sale on Ebay
