We just bought this car a couple of months ago after having been without a car for over a year when our very used 1995 Lumina died. With two young kids, it sure comes in handy to have wheels! Our neighbor was selling this SUV, and since we had just gotten our tax check, we could afford it. Our 3 year old daughter named her.
That's not our actual license plate in the picture - it's just me playing around!
(I don't have this car anymore. Believe it or not, it was stolen right out of my locked garage while it was partially disassembled for restoration back in the mid 1990's. The car's picture, and those in it's album, are of a similar car sourced from the Internet.)
As a Corvair nut, it's kind of obvious that I like unusual cars. Well, this one was unusual even for a Corvair! How's this for a build sheet: The base 95 h.p. engine hooked up to the optional 4-speed transaxle, and powering the rare factory-optional air conditioning? Not only that, but it had the ultra-rare AM/FM radio too! I got a great screamin' deal on this car, and it served me very well as a nice weather car as well as taking myself and my three kids in comfort to several out-of-town Corvair Club events. It may not have been blindingly fast, but that air conditioning sure made up for a lot of that!
