About “pops”

my dad gave me this car before he passed away in nov of 07. dont know much about corvairs but im ready to learn.
its a white convertible with white top and red interior.

About “#The Sleeper#”

I found this about four blocks from where I live. It was parked on a gravel lot and had about six For Sale signs in it. As soon as I saw 350 motor and $1,500 obo, I gave the guy a call. We met up the same day and I gave the car a good look over, and test drove it. I agreed to the 1,500 the next day and he took the For Sales signs out of the car. The car was up for sale for only one day.
