Some of us do remember "Unsafe at Any Speed." Some of us very well!

I'm prolly to young but I am a history buff, used to teach it. The corvair was his biggest fight against the man/corporations and on the the side of the little guy/ordinary folk. Who cares if they weren't the safest car ever they sure were cool, my wife and I had a Corvair, yellow in color, with that famous POC pancake motor. Blew oil like you wouldn't believe, the continuing and frequent maintenance caused a fairly short romance with the little banana.
Different strokes for different folks!

I never learned from a man who agreed with me.

A guy near me has 10 corvairs, 8 of them run well and they are a blast to drive... I have driven one of them and it handles great and is super fast, never felt unsafe once... they are wantabie sports cars. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... I had someone actually tell me Anna was an eye sore... they may find his body in the woods someday.
Having spent some of my past life following the Grateful Dead around the country, I have seen some unique homespun campers... wish I had had the focus to document some of them. In 1992 I was traveling in a 1968 school bus that had been converted to a house bus. It had a wood-fired cookstove from the 1880's, a chemical toilet hidden behind a real outhouse door, and about 20 different skylights cut into the roof. Her name was Edna and she was driven a "cat" named Star Sign. If you all saw pictures of her....
And for the record... just because you do not have money, you are not poor, being poor is having nothing left on the inside. I have worked for clients with more money than God, that are so poor it is unbelievable.

Had the spider and couldn't keep a clutch cable in her. Electrial burn and then it would break. After long last, a lady pulled out in front of me on Hwy29 in Pensacola, Fl and I rolled my little spider. Wish I could say I missed It.
