I drove the Corvair to the challenge. 

Everything went well and it handled the 300 miles I put on it without complaint.

I had it filled with tools, luggage and a cooler.

Driving an older car is an event and I am glad I decided to take it this weekend.

I got a chance to throw it on the scales after the concourse, it was actually pretty light but the weight distribution was not the best.

yeah, pretty funny that a car with a 108" wheelbase and 180" overall length comes in at 2635 lbs.   stock battery location makes LR suffer.   I'm now 100% on board with the DS2's on there, I think they look great.

I didn't like them at first but they did grow on me also.

Jeremy saw it right away, good call

I had a 68 corvair with the 110 hp engine. Did some mild hop ups to it and had a lot of fun with it. There was a conversion kit that converted the two one barrel carb set up to a single two barrel and added a bit of power I think the company name was ieco or something like that...of course headers and dual exhaust helped too...with those two mods it made for a fairly peppy  car for its time for a married guy on a limited budget. When the time came, I should have traded the wife and kept the car. :) It would have been less trouble.
