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!
Who Killed the Corvair?
Was it Ralph Nader? Bad publicity? General Motors? The muscle car? Larry
Claypool, Corvair historian, explains his theory on the demise of the
unique, rear-engined car at the Orphan Auto Picnic in August 2009.
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:
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. Check out our Flickr site:
