After three months of work (and too much money) the white 1966 Chevy Corvair 500 coupe got to the point that it was running and drivable. I was able to drive it to work three days last week. But the rattling flywheel was something that would have required more work than I was willing to do. So, last weekend, I sold the car to a young man who had been looking for a good project car. After a careful explanation of the problems and a test drive, Ricardo agreed to purchase the car for a reasonable price.
It was with mixed emotions that I watched him drive it away. It was a good looking car and the kids loved it. But it was not a car that I would have driven during the winter. And I’m not one to keep a car in the garage for any extended period of time. Cars are meant to be driven! So, on to the next project. Speaking of projects … once I finish a few projects around the house, I’ll talk things over with the family and see about getting another car — this time a daily driver.
