Re: Ok dumb question.... (92foxrox)
”what did those Corvairs run in the 0-60 times. They are the neatest cars.”
-- 10 seconds w/ 4 carbs.
“until you tried to take a turn, the feds said.
Then, the fun began.”
--No that was an ambulance-chasing publicity-seeking lawyer that said/wrote that.
Imagine a lawyer offering to blame the Tera-Fox crash on VW and suing VW on a contingency basis (no cost to you, only a cut of the award). A lot of people (out of greed or to avoid blame) would/did take the bait.
Also, per the DOT study (that was _not_ a best seller) the early Corvair generated more G’s that other cars of its time. And the later Corvairs w/ full independent rear suspension handled even better – ask someone who ownes/owned one.
On second thought, I take it all back. They are dangerous cars. If anyone reading this has a nice 65-69 140hp coupe or convertible you should get rid of it before you kill yourself. You can sell it to me cheap.
