A nice trip on a Swiss frozen lake with a Chevrolet Corvair (1960). This experience was possible because of the amazing cold days we had during several weeks.
We do not own anything about the music.
Enjoy the video!
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.

Chevrolet Corvair Video Review
This is my video review of the 1964 Chevrolet Corvair Monza Spyder, created for the Kelley Blue Book video review contest.
1965 Chevrolet Corvair Turbo
180hp flat six turbo makes this quicker than it looks. It certainly would outrun the reputation my mother has of Corvairs. Can't remember the year her friend had, but the belt flew off when the two of them were heading up a mountain. I think her friend Judy eventually got the hang of reinstalling the belt herself since it happened so often. Taken at Abingdon Lowe's 21 October 2011. I would also encourage you to look up the Corvair Tank on youtube. Shocking enough, a small infantry tank was built in the latter 60's with a Corvair drivetrain! No, it wasn't turbo charged.
