10k: No Pony Tails Allowed: 1965 Chevrolet Corvair V8

The second generation Chevrolet Corvair was released in 1965 and survived until 1969 when the cumulative damage from the political campaign from a young Ralph Nader put an end the only rear-engined automobile from a US company at the time.  It was the closest thing you could get to European handing from a domestic car from the 1960s and its air cooled flat-6 out back was a cool piece of engineering.  However, many Covair owners have chosen to up the fun factor by installing a big V8 where the rear seats used to be.  Find this 1965 Chevrolet Corvair V8 offered for $10,000 buy-it-now on ebay, located in Versailles, KY.

This Corvair looks like a wreck from the outside; it is missing all kinds of trim, the paint is faded and the only thing it has going for it is a mean stance and some sweet Nascar style black steel wheels.

Inside is where things get hairy…as in..no long hair.  The ZZZ 350 cubic inch crate motor from GM should be good for around 350 horsepower and is sitting about 4 inches from your neck.  The brown pants factor in this car will be extremely high, even at idle.
