Car on ice!

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!

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

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.

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 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.
