    Nice! Love the color.

  • Thanks! Actually white, but the exposure and flash caused the color shift. I have same shot where the car is white, just didn’t do anything for me…

    Very nice catch! Not a lot of “Fitch” muscle-corvairs around anymore, and a lot of folks don’t even know about Fitch!
    This angle makes it look like a Ferrari!

  • Bill, thank you so much. Displayed, 2nd floor of the garage :)

    Ralph killed it just as GM made it good. Nice one John.

  • So many lawsuits, GM couldn’t mention how they had “fixed” the suspension issue… Thanks, Paul!!

    You really captured the essence of this upgraded version of the humble classic, John! My cousin always loved her little red Corvair convertible. It was a fun ride, until daddy (Ralph Nader) took the Corvair away. LOL

  • Thanks, Gene! Uncle Ralph and his cadre… dumbed us down, and a large number of folks accept others making their decisions, while they text away and worry abouut the Super Bowl. Subway sandwiches are not a foot long, only 117/8"… the dirty sob’s! Sorry for the rant, if you never comment again, I’ll understand!!!
