The first generation Chevrolet Corvair (1960-1964) was much maligned for it’s swing axle suspension that would pogo-stick you into a spin at the first chance it could get…but the 2nd generation (1965-1969) fixed that with a fully independent rear suspension with coil springs at all four corners that would keep you right-side-up right-side-forward and alive. But this next example has a Corvette LT1 V8 sitting where an arm rest would normally go…and if that won’t kill you in a crash, the roll cage will certainly finish you off. Might as well mount a Viking helmet as an airbag in this thing…but oh man it looks like fun. Find this 1966 Chevrolet Corvair V8 offered for $8000 in Hamilton, OH via craigslist.

Many a V8 swapped Volvo bricks have graced these pages, but few have all the qualities to make a truly primo driver. This is not to say that a car with an automatic or a sedan is a bad car by any means. Most would agree that the top of the food chain for these […]
I can’t agree more that when the seller says this car is a “Must seeeeeeeeee” because I’m having a hard time justifying the images on the pages with what I know about Volkswagen Beetles. Just how does a Chevrolet V8 fit under the front hood and how does power get to what rear end…it’s like […]
Some things are just not done. Considered taboo, blasphemy or bad form, they just break traditionally long held beliefs. If you are not a traditionalist and constrained by old notions all bets are off. Throw off the yoke of convention and watch the old guard yell and scream. Take this to a German car show […]
