1969 Corvair Badass!
1969 smog Chevrolet Corvair: this ride went through a makeover here at
Rafee Corvair in the Heartland, we upgraded the engine with a 260 cam,
.040 custom made forged pistons; we plugged the cumbersome smog system,
but left it in place for originality at shows. I don't know about you guys,
but to me, the smog system was not a good idea, and stock Corvairs lacked
power! If it wasn't for the mods that I do to these rides, I probably
wouldn't mess with them.....Don't take me wrong, I dig the body style of
both earlies and late, it is just the power issue that needs to be
addressed. Now, after my work, this ride runs the way it is supposed to,
glides smoothly and has plenty of power! It can easily cruise at 80 MPH,
awesome for a 2-speed powerglide! If your ride is ready for an overhaul,
don't hesitate to call me at 918-753-2486 with any questions you might
have, or e-mail email@example.com. Keep them rolling, Peace out!
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:

A couple of interviews with Corvair owners at the South 71 Cruiser's Cruise
Night event this month. Lots of other cars there, but the Corvairs seemed
like an interesting topic to record.

Engine Biter and Car Crusher in Junkyard
Action at the junkyard of 109 U-PULL-IT. Here you will see the Engine Biter
and the Car Crusher. The Engine Biter literally rips the engines out of the
vehicles and the crusher crushes them flat as a pancake.

1965 Corvair coupe
I really like what this owner has done to this Corvair! Notice the center
console housing all the gauges you wish you had as original equipment.
Upholstery and paint are perfect! The engine compartment is a perfect
example of the care and sense of beauty that this owner must have!
1966 Corvair Corsa Turbo.avi
Sorry for the shaky camera work.
This is a Canadian built car. One of 141 turbo coupe's built in 1966. This car was found
just a few weeks before this video was taken. It was in a garage where it
had been stored since the 1980's. At this point it had been washed once,
fluids changed, breaks replaced along with a dual chamber master cylinder
installation. This is a work in progress but I'm having a blast driving it
while I fix it up.
The Corvair community as a whole has been really great in answering my
questions and helping me out.
