About “Canada Vair”

Found this car in a field in 1990. It hadn't been on the road since 1973. I have been working on it for 6 years now performing a complete and extensive ground up restoration

About “Corsa coupe”

Purchased: 1987

I drove to Brighton, Michigan to purchase this car the night before I took the bar exam. It was one of the most straight, rust-free old cars I have ever seen.

The engine has been rebuilt three times since I purchased it, and the car has been repainted three times, once unintentionally (but that is another story).

The story of the last and most comprehensive motor rebuild can be read at
