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.

Mid-Engine Crown Corvair: Porsche Cayman Fighter - /BIG MUSCLE
• 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.

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!

UNSAFE AT ANY SPEED?
A couple of interviews with Corvair owners at the South 71 Cruiser's Cruise
Night event this month. Lots of other cars there, but the Corvairs seemed
like an interesting topic to record.
