I did just as you said. All that showed in my post was those funny little MS boxes where the picture should be. I did succeed in loading some from this sites gallery, where I was able to load directly from my computer and then load them via that url to another place on this site.
Succinct and very diplomatic, Army Dad......kudos.....
and I second it, but I would like to see more of the Corvair. It's been so long since I've seen one, it would be a real trip down memory lane....
I was about 13 when they came out, and 20-odd when they left us.
2. I pimped my CT and put the interior illumination in- now I feel like Mad Max at night!
3. Corvair stuff:
I took my driving test in a pristine 1967 4-door monza with just about every option factory installed.
The 1st car I ever bought (and drove daily for ~7 years) was a '68 Monza 110 HP 4-speed that had parts from every year from 65-69.
Off the line up to ~60 MPH, I could take just about anything. It weighed ~2000 lbs and the tires did not squeal no matter how fast I took turns/exit ramps, etc. A friend of mine raced them for many years. He said no american car could out-handle him on the track until the mid-1980's.
This one is a 1965 Monza 140 HP 4-speed (4-1 barrel carbs - the most of any US production car 2 primary 2 secondary; and you better have good carb tuning karma cuz the linkage is not easy to get RIGHT). Here's a few pictures:
150 HP in early and 180 HP in the late models (factory). Depending on which turbo unit you can make it go whoopeeee better and with a few parts, more HP output. I think the type G's are primo. Many used them in dune rat racers (like a VW motor but 6 cylinder). Oddly enough, 110 HP Corvair engines are being used in ultralight aircraft here and there these days.
There are still a fair number of them around (check ebay- lots for sale) and parts galore from Clark's Corvair Parts up in MA and individuals who have serious packrat issues and still have unimaginable collections of NOS parts.
