Fisher Body Builds for GM
By the 1950s the company started by the Fisher Brothers to provide custom
bodies for rich people had become the pillar of General Motors
manufacturing empire. Every division relied on Fisher body to deliver the
sheet metal it would sell. Eventually, the Fisher division was done away
with when it was considered to be too ungainly but in the 50s it was the
king of auto manufacturing.
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:

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.
The Electric Revolution
With colourful stories, eccentric characters and evocative archive, this
timepiece documentary charts the up and down 110 year history of the
electric car. Narrated by Kenneth Cranham, the film features vintage
electric car collectors, EV designers and EV evangelists as well as
dyed-in-the-wool petrol heads.
The film examines the failings of early EVs, the false dawn resulting from
the energy crisis of the 70s and the controversial crushing of the GM EV1.
Lastly, as mainstream manufacturers such as Renault invest billions in new
EVs and governments invest in charging infrastructure, the film examines
why it will be different this time.

XXXXX Corvair At Gilmore Shell Station 7 20 13
Hi, CORVAIRWILD here. A little about me and what I do: First, I love my
wife of many years, she is a wonderful lady. I call her Mrs CW. I can never
go anywhere without her & my Dog Muggs! He's cool. You should have a dog
like him too. Next, I am a landlord, NO, not a slumlord who does section 8
apartment rentals, but I keep my properties up like they were my own...they
are my own! Like I live there. I have lots of apartment buildings, a farm
out in the country and a house here and there. I am always doing something,
driving rehabbing, you name it! I want to include you, so I bring my
camera! EVERYWHERE! Haha.
Did I mention I am a car enthusiast! I can't get enough Covairs and Vintage
Chevy and GMC trucks. They have great reliability...all of em' the best
vehicle on the road ever is a Corvair Spider turbo. Back to the trucks, I love the diesel
trucks and suburbans, Blazers too. That's what I plow snow with. A fisher
snow plow. I'm a busy guy, but I make time for you. Thanks! CW
