In Topic: The Corvair Topic

28 February 2015 - 07:53 PM

Is there a website that illustrates the detail differences between the '65-'69 Corvairs? I hate to say it, but they all look alike to me, except for the obvious side marker lights on the '68 and '69.

 

The late model (65-69) Corvairs were fairly identical from the outside. The only major exterior differences were the taillights and markers on the fenders. The '65 taillights are different from the '66 + years. Also, the Monza and Corsa trims have emblems on the front fenders behind the wheel well. I believe the '65's also had the front emblem on the hood rather than the nose. The main differences in the late models were mechanical in nature such as brakes, electrical, steering column, and the interior (all I can remember right now). The early models had more differences between years, though still not many.

In Topic: Corvair Van measurements needed

Just found that Premier made a Rampside kit but it's very rare. I might have to look into the resin ones David, maybe I can turn a van into a truck.

If you don't get what you need just PM me and I can ask on the Corvair forum.

 

Too bad they never made models of the truck, van, or station wagon.


In Topic: What is a "girls " car ?

22 November 2014 - 11:48 AM

IMO just because a girl happens to drive a car, it doesn't mean it's a "girl's car". Rather what makes a girl car is one that is mostly driven by girls, like VW Beetles. Also, girl's cars can be made less "girlie", and vise-versa, so don't feel like all Miatas, Beetles, etc. are girl cars.

 

My list:

2nd Gen Beetles

Miatas

Most convertibles

4th gen Mustangs

Prius

 

Like I said, girl cars can be made less girlie and vise-versa.
