Corvair Monza SR
This 2011 prototype is a design projection of how Chevrolet's original 1963 Monza SS concept might have turned out, had it gone into actual production. It's a tribute to Larry Shinoda, who designed it and some of America's best known automobiles, the C2 Corvettes and later Boss Mustangs. It's also a tribute to Bill Mitchell, who had the design foresight to dream of this being a lower-priced brother to the Corvette. This version is 6% larger than the original, and has more modern lighting, so that it can better blend with today's denser, SUV -laden traffic.
We are using the model designation Monza SR, in deference to the original Monza SS concept and GM's recent decision renew trademark on the SS model name. As 2012 progresses, we are working toward making this car available as a limited-production kit that uses the future owner's existing Corvair powertrain in our own serial-numbered, tube-frame, rolling chassis/body combination.

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 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280891024087#vi-content

65 Mustang Fastback Restoration Project
This is my 1965 Mustang Fastback I rescued from a field rusting away. I finished it around July of 2008 in my back yard garage with no professional assistance at all. It took me about 26 months to complete. It has a 302 Ford motor and an 5 Speed manual transmission. I restored this car to the information on the original data plate on the door that included the body color and interior. The stripe is unique in that I added a darker red to the Poppy Red body color to get a stripe that is a little darker but blends in with the factory color. This car features four wheel disc brakes made from all Ford parts.
Spring Start 1964 Chevy Corvair Spyder
Well it started pretty easy as it usually does, but I abruptly stopped the video when I smelled gasoline really strongly. The main fuel pump decided to fail and start spraying fuel like a garden sprinkler in the engine bay. See the next video in my uploads for a better look.
