We had a blue Corvair when I was a little January 1979 40 years of being awesome shirt. Took a trip in it from Houston all the way through the Mississippi Delta and Nashville and ended up at the Memphis Zoo. Daddy took us to the famous Peabody Hotel just to see the lobby as well then back home to Houston. I know that was the best little car. It fit all 5 of us just perfect. I sat between Mom and Dad because my brothers were so mischievous. We though we were in high cotton having such a wonderful sports car.

Best January 1979 40 years of being awesome shirt
Was much better than a VW Beetle, yet Ralf Nader picked on the Corvair and destroyed January 1979 40 years of being awesome shirt. Strange! Our first new car purchase! Loved it and never had any problem with it. My hubby has never forgiven Mr. Nader. This car got me home in the worst blizzard we ever had in my area. It may have been deemed “dangerous”, but it sure had some good points.
The negative press on the corvair, was all about money not about facts. The car was a bit homely, and I never owned one, but I owned a corvair engine, bolted to a VW bus transaxle on a dune buggy and drove it for years, without fail. The only issue I had was that even though it was exposed, it ran too hot. Air cooled in Arizona summers is not good, even VW’s had an issue.
