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!

1966 Chevrolet "Impact '66 #1" General Motors w/ 60's Demolition Derby Sequence
more at http://cars.quickfound.net/ Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demolition_derby Demolition derby is a motorsport usually presented at county fairs and festivals. While rules vary from event to event, the typical demolition derby event consists of five or more drivers competing by deliberately ramming their vehicles into one another. The last driver whose vehicle is still operational is awarded the victory. Demolition derbies originated in the United States and quickly spread to other western nations. In Europe, this type of event is called banger racing, although in a demolition derby, racers do not race against each other, instead aiming specifically to destroy the other cars. Demolition derbies can be very dangerous. Although serious injuries are rare, they do happen. Drivers are typically required to sign a waiver to release the promoter of an event from liability. To make the event safer, all glass is removed from the vehicle, and deliberately ramming the driver's-side door area is forbidden. The driver's door is often required to be painted white with black numbers or blaze orange, or with contrasting colors, for visibility. Most demolition derbies are held on dirt tracks, or in open fields, that are usually soaked with water. This causes the competition area to become muddy, which in turn helps to further slow the vehicles. Some drivers use both the front and rear of the vehicle to ram the other competitors. Others tend to use only the rear end of the vehicle, to help protect the engine compartment from damage. Demolition derbies were first held at various fairs and race tracks and speedways by independent promoters in the 1950s. There are unconfirmed reports of events occurring as far back as the 1930s utilizing the abundant supply of worn out Ford Model T's. The originator of the concept for demolition derbies is disputed. One source said that Don Basile is often credited with inventing the demolition derby at Carrell Speedway in 1947. Another source states stock car racer Larry Mendelsohn created the concept for demolition derbies at New York State's Islip Speedway in 1958 after realizing many people favored wrecks to racing. The sport's popularity grew throughout the 1960s, becoming a standard of county fairs in rural areas, and becoming a quirky subculture nationwide. In 1965 a reported crowd of 20,000 packed into Rowley Park Speedway to see Australia's first demolition derby. ABC's Wide World of Sports televised the World Championship Demolition Derby from the mid 1960s until 1972. Also in 1972, the Los Angeles Coliseum hosted a demolition derby with mint-condition late model cars driven by Mario Andretti, A. J. Foyt, and Bobby Unser. The popular ABC sitcom Happy Days included the character Pinky Tuscadero, a professional demolition derby driver and occasional love-interest to the show's most popular character, Arthur Fonzarelli. The sport's popularity peaked in the 1970s. By the 1980s, the sport's popularity began to level off, and then possibly decline throughout the 1990s. With the demise of Wide World of Sports, television exposure became virtually non-existent. In addition to safety concerns and the shortage of full-size vehicles, some felt that the sport has shown little change or innovation beyond its original premise of giant lumbering cars sloshing through mud... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chevrolet_Chevy_II_/_Nova 1966 Chevy IIs introduced an extensive sharp-edged restyle based in part on the Super Nova concept car. In general, proportions were squared up but dimensions and features changed little. Highlights included a bold grille and semi-fastback roofline. "Humped" fenders in an angular rear end were reminiscent of larger 1966 Chevrolets, though the 1966 Chevy II and Nova had vertical taillights and single headlights. The lineup again started with Chevy II 100 and Chevy II Nova 400 models...

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.

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.





Driving the Chevrolet Corvair on FM4
I am driving the Chevrolet Corvair Monza at the Top Gear Test Track on Forza Motorsport 4. This car is part of the March Pirelli Pack. The Chevrolet Corvair is the only American-made vehicle that comes with a layout of rear-engined rear-wheel drive. What's featured on Forza Motorsport 4 is the second-generation Chevrolet Corvair, but to be specific, the Monza model. Introduced in the 1967 model year, it was the first to feature a collapsible steering column, dual circuit master cylinder with warning light, nylon reinforced brake hoses, stronger steel door hinges, "mushroomed" instrument panel knobs and a vinyl-edged day/night mirror. In present, the Chevrolet Corvair is one of the most dangerous cars to drive because back in 2007, Time Magazine named it one of the 50 Worst Cars of All Time because of the handling issues and it said "It leaked oil like a derelict tanker. Its heating system tended to pump noxious fumes into the cabin. It was offered for a while with a gasoline-burner heater located in the front "trunk", a common but dangerously dumb accessory at the time." By interest, the Chevrolet Corvair was featured on Top Gear USA's Dangerous Cars episode. Rutledge Wood drove the Corvair while Adam Ferrera drives a Ford Pinto and Tanner Foust drives the Suzuki Samurai. NO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT INTENDED!!!!
