Mid Engine V8 Swap Corvair
When this thing pulled in I saw the 350 on the side but it was so quiet.
Then some guy called me over to see the captains chairs that had to be used
so you could swing in as the SBC is really far forward on this thing.

Corvair Springfest in Helen Georgia 2008. I was is Helen for the Tour de
Georgia bicycle race and saw all these Corvairs. One owner told me there

The 1965 Shelby Corvair Myth
Remember the rumor that Shelby did a little side work (just prior to the Mustang) for Chevy on 20
Corvairs, "Type LT"?, for the long ago defunct Mexican race series known as
"IRAM"? International Race Association de Mexico?
UPDATE! 2008, July...
The only known survivor is found! What hype! Incredible. ;-)
-- HAHAHA - just kidding :)
Music from Fort Collins, Colorado band GIVE 'ER HELL'S new CD - "SLEAZY
Song: "ARE YOU EXCITED TO SEE ME OR DO YOU ALWAYS SMELL LIKE THAT?"
James Reeve Returns 2011 Road Atlanta
The return to racing of Yenko Stinger racing legend James J. Reeve Jr.
Back in the mid 70's James was a thorn in the side of the British and
Datsun factory teams. James in his 1966 Yenko Stinger Corvair running as a
privateer was able to beat the likes Group 44, Huffaker and Datsun factory
backed teams in SCCA D-Production road racing at the national championship
level. I offered my Yenko Stinger Corvair for James to drive in the 2011
Historic Sportscar Racing (HSR) annual Mitty race at Road Atlanta the
weekend of April 29-May 1. James certainly didn't disappoint us Corvair
types this weekend. We were only beaten by a very well driven, and fast,
Lotus Super 7 driven by Bill Bartlett also from Atlanta. Thanks again
The HOTTEST '68 Corvair Ever Built???
I've forgotten this fellow's name, but he served in Iraq for us, and we
rewarded him with his dream Corvair, a special ordered '68 500. It's got
the 140, 4 speed, POSI, F41 special susp., and the light group. It was
bought to race, sat on a trailer in Louisiana for 20 years, was bought and
underside detailed by a Corvair entusiast, and bought and returned to the
track. It was the talk of Lime rock, it's a GR8 car!
Thx for serving in Iraq for us...
