Your Garages

Where’s Yours?

 

 

 

 

 

Rick Norris, first president of CORSA, has to be credited with having the idea of including an area for other Corvair collectors to show off their Corvairs in their garages.  Rick proposed this idea to me in an email just a few days after this website first went online.  He then went out and snapped a few photos of his Corvair in its garage just a few weeks later.

The Ideal Garage is pleased to feature several fine Corvairs from around the country on these pages.  We hope that many others will take the time to send in their pictures as well.  Remember, if you’d like your Corvair featured on this website, please check out the guidelines on the Parking  Your Corvair in the Ideal Garage page so we can get the ball rolling.

Without further delay, here are your Corvairs.  All cars are displayed in the order in which the pictures were received.

Rick Norris took his time preparing this superb Crown Conversion V8 Monza.  Though the modifications are radical, everything looks just right.

Craig and Diane Hardy live in a neighborhood that is absolutely full of Corvairs.  The Hardys’ Corvairs are as clean and nice as you’ll find.

I met Kerry Parkos one day while putting my ‘65 Monza into its storage garage.  His was right next door.  It’s nice to have a neighbor with a penchant for Chevy show cars.

Ron and Kathy Thompson did a total restoration on a 1962 Corvair 900 coupe.  They purchased a second ‘62 coupe as a parts car, but ended up restoring it as well.

Ron T. chose to restore a Corvair because his two sons will soon be teenagers and he doesn’t want them pestering him for the keys.

little stratagem is likely to succeed.

Tony Underwood, a frequent contributor to Virtual Vairs, came across this customized Early Model at a car show.  The owner claimed it was specially built by GM.  Tony isn’t so sure.
