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: 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 - 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.





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.

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

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!





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.





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.
