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.


In Topic: under glass

That GMC is a truck... obviously, I don't understand why it's so difficult for people to grasp the concept. And if your topic gets moved to a different section, so what? What is it hurting? Adding more sections only makes things more cluttered and confusing and merging areas is only going to make people upset. No matter what they do, somebody is going to upset with the change so everybody might as well accept the way it is and follow the rules.

 

Also, not sure why people don't realize the "Truck" section is split into "Big Rigs" for semis and commercial, and "Pickups, Vans, SUVs, Light Commercial", pretty self explanatory.

Actually, they put that same Corvair transaxle into early Tempests and Lemans, turned backwards and with a Pontiac 4 or V8 up front.. very screwy set-up... you can climb under the thing while its running and watch the torque converter going around on what looks like a rear end... it has a crazy non-linear driveshaft between the trans-axle and engine.... if you have never investigated this check it out, its interesting if nothing else:)

 

I've heard about those but never got to check one out in person.
