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 50th Anniversary Vairs In The Valley Parade
October 2, 1959 was the date that the Chevrolet Corvair was first introduced in Chevy showrooms across the country. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Corvair, enthusiast gathered in many towns and cites for shows, displays, parades, scenic drives, food and fun. One really great celebration was "Vairs In The Valley" hosted by NC Mountain Corvairs, here are a few scenes of some nice Corvairs and two Corvair powered vehicles returning from a parade through Maggie Valley, NC on Oct. 2, 2009.





1965 Corvair Monza Convertible
Really nice, sporty car! Perfect paint and interior. As you look at the dash, you see the transmission quadrant selector lever for the two speed Powerglide transmission. Chrysler Corporation tried that dash selector lever for the 1955 model year, then went to pushbuttons until 1965 when they reverted to a conventional shift lever on the steering column. Air cooled flat configured six cylinder engine. I think the car would have stayed around longer had it not had such competition from the new Mustang. Notice the extra supply of fan belts..early Corvairs were noted for throwing a belt on occasion.

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.

This promotional film from Chevrolet highlights the power and performance of the all-new 1962 Corvair Monza Spyder. Available as both a coupe or a convertible, the Monza Spyder was the first production car offered by Chevrolet with a turbocharged engine.
