    note i said set it to center and have the background be black, yeah the resolution sucks if you stretch it, but thats not the point. Its supposed to be small, sedate and not huge and over the top.

    Updating the early (60-64) isn't really practical and unless you are going to go racing competitively, isn't really necessary. Especially so with the '64 with the transverse leaf. I own a '64 that I have been driving for about 30 years now and with some really good shocks, tires (proper tire pressure) and a little stiffer stabilizer bars, the early models are every bit as fun to drive and often run with the late models (65-69) at the autocrosses. The '64 also gets you the 164cid engine. Having said that, the 4-carb 140hp engines were available only in the 65-69 models (standard in Corsa, optional in all others) but they can be put into the early model cars as well with minor effort.

    I guess what I am suggesting is to go after the style car you want and then you can make it what you want. Do you want to restore to original or modify/update to suit your needs? The Corvair Society of America (CORSA) is a well run club, I am sure you have run across that already (www.corvair.org) along with Clark's Corvair Parts and Corvair Underground just to name a few.

    Here is mine. 65 with the four carbs. I have joined the local Corsa chapter, and have learned a lot about the little cars. There are lots of information and help for Corvairs. I can't wait to get mine out on the road this spring.
