About corvairguy’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

I grew up in the car business thanks to my Dad and Mom having deep passions for nice cars so of course since before I could walk I was in the garage watching and learning. I owe my Passion to people like my Father, Bobby Crawford, Gary "Hossman" Morgan, John "trannyman" Crone and so many others.

My first car

My first car was a 1967 Olds Cutlass which my dad gave me when I was 7 and he said If you can make it run it is yours so, off I went on my first endeavor to diagnose and repair a non running car. Well I ended up having to rebuild the carb (quadrajet)and redoing it 4 or 5 times and getting the dwell right on the points and man off she went and I ran her all over the place since we had tons of fields. This was an experience I would not trade for anything else.

Car I wish I still had

Well, actually there are 2 cars that I wish that I still had. First one my 1970 Chevy Nova which had a super strong 327 out of a 65 impala and My 1969 Rambler American which lost the 199 six for a 350ci Chevrolet powerplant backed by a cronie turbo 350 with 2 4's and all. What a compliment I had gotten on this car when Darrell 'DW' Waltrip's showcar crew fell in love with it. When I worked at western auto back in 85

My dream car

I'd have to say a Yenko Stinger with stage 3 Tune. They are restoring one at The corvair ranch in Gettysburg, I'll have to see how far along Jeff and his crew are on it. By the way it is number 3. I wouldn't mind a 63 split window vette or a 56 chevy convertible "thanks Pop" I did however fall in love with the little vairs and the air of mystery that surrounds them since most people don't even know what they are (LOL)
