I had my exhaust pipes replaced from the mufflers to behind the rear tires instead of in front of the wheels done in stainless She sounds pretty neat .
It will take a few times trying to upload Pics I can do it but it took me a long time to figure how too. Best of luck and can't wait for your Pic's.
My oldest brother had a 69 vette sure was pretty.

Classic cars

It seems from what I know of Corvair people if you have one you end up with more than one. We have 3 and we need to get rid of these before going full time. But it's just hard to get started.
My 69 Corvair Was white Hubby painted it black
The 66 Convertible was white He painted it red.
The 66 Red coupe was red but got restored by hubby.

Used to be, but they were just cheap wheels at the time. In order - a 1958 DKW 2-door coupe, 3-cyl, 2-cycle engine, automatic stick-shift bought it for $50, sold it for $75. Next, a 1960 MG-1100 2-door sedan, a blast to drive, but very fragile. After that a 1966 UK Ford Cortina GT ($400 in 1971) and finally a 1968 Rover 2000TC.

After that, DW said "no more weird euorpean cars" and we've had US, Japanese and Korean ever since, none of which I'd consider "Classics"

The only one I wish I'd kept and restored was the DKW. DKW was the early 1950's predecessor to what is now Audi - it even had the present day Audi logo. It was a superbly engineered weirdo. Telling a gas station guy "5 GALLONS , not dollars worth, and wait 'til I've poured the oil in" was priceless.

Corvairs are cool cars. You did a great job.

i agree. I remember back in '66 my next door neighbor's parents bought him a slightly used coupe. We thought our muscle cars were cool, but I remember that Corvair would about yank your head off going around a corner. Talk about lateral G's.....

I also remember entering a cross-country snowmobile race in Brainerd, Mn and there was a Polaris with a Corvair engine in it. Reportedly clocked going down a plowed path on the frozen lake by police radar at 120 mph.

Two Fords

'67 Ford F-100 (was my grandfather's) and '88 Mustang ASC McLaren roadster (very rare limited edition). Both pleasure drivers, both pretty much all original.

Wow! That brought back a few memories. When I first met my better half she had a '65 Corsa. Thanks for the memory.

I love looking at all the old cars. Below is some pictures of my Ford Model T's.
1924 Tudor Sedan. 1925 Touring. 1926 Fodor Sedan. These cars are not fast, in fact we call it life in the slow lane, but we have a lot of fun with them.

1986 Porsche 930 (911) Turbo 12,500 miles

I thought since I didn't have any American Classics to show I"d post our 1986 Porsche 930 turbo. This is the first year that Porsche started to import the Turbo again ..it's the first year with the 5mph bumper set up. The BBS wheels were installed by the Dealer when we bought the car brand new in 86. We currently have about 12,500 miles on it, Garage Kept and driven occasionally to town. This car loves the Tennessee back roads and the cooler temps about now! When the Turbo kicks in at 3000 rpm you just need to hold on...

Thanks for looking!
Dave

scdiver, my father had a 1917 Model T touring car. He rebuilt it and it was basically original stock, except for he added the later electric start. The rebuilt wood wheels were beautiful in natural wood finish against the black body and top. He also put on the Rocky Mountain brakes for added safety stopping in modern traffic, and a water pump to eliminate the puking after it was stopped. Life in the slow lane is about right, safe cruising speed on my father's was about 35-37 mph.
