Corvair and Corv8

February 14, 2012

Spent some time puttering around with my Dad in his garage and realized I had not posted any photos of what caused my obsession with old cars. When I was a teenager my Dad and I rebuilt a 1964 Corvair. The little red convertible has been a pleasure to drive ever since, although it only gets about 1000 miles a year and still requires quite a bit of maintenance. The time rebuilding it why I am now working on my 912. The hard top Corv8 has been Dad’s project for the last few years and one day I will convince him to drive it further than down the block, looks good in the garage at least.
