    Re: 1964 Corvair Monza - Operation Crustbuster

    Made a friend out in Kansas with a '63, actually. She did hers a pale gold. I think it looks stately as such. Suits her well. Weird friend to have, as she is very much an auto enthusiast, but I met her through entirely different hobbies. Auto people are always kind of weird.



    There are also two that show up at the weekly classic car show Florida has with these. One (Black with red) is obviously a seasonal resident, as I've only see he and his wife in the summer, I believe the other (All black) is local, because he seems to be there at least once a month during any time I am in Florida with the chance to visit the show. Can't argue with either colour scheme.

    Saw a few of them at the Henderson show last month. Lately, I have encountered quite a few Corvair enthusiasts for an apparently still-growing list.

    Lupin, thanks for the up date, sorry it is such bad news. sounds like a real gem you ran into there. Hope someone can sort it out and get you right again.

    Dullahan: That light gold is a good look for it, just not the resale color that will grab the eye. Good for a keeper though. She looks a little young to drive it though....for that matter...a little young to be your friend too.






    ....drop the Jolly Ranchers and step away from the swingset sir!

    That's her daughter. Actually, I think she painted it that colour to match the car her Father drove growing up (which was not a Corvair)

    Her daughter is four though, which more than makes her old enough to drive.

    Thanks for the interest Dave, I need any support I can get to keep myself going on this project. Ironically the car hasn't been the biggest supplier of headaches, it's been body guys...

    I think of you often and hope it all works out for you. Sucks to have an idiot take the wind out of your sails like that. Especially after you had a chance to have a little fun with it. Keep the faith and it will come around for you. That car is just too cool to not get back on the road somehow!

    This isn't my usual body guy... he was the extra cheap one. I get what I pay for I guess, and since we agreed payment upon completion, I guess I received what I paid up front. He's promising up and down that he will have results for me today, I should have some pics from him.

    Thanks a bunch Dave! Whenever I sat in the car I would look at the ash tray, think back to your story, and imagine smoke and ash everywhere! Hahaha. I'm hoping for progress soon. I will update with more information.

    Hey, if you can find someone who does more than what you pay for you're golden. Like my ghetto shop down in Crackima that does my stereo/tinting stuff.

    I'd rather do my own tint and stereo stuff than have ghetto people do it.

    In my experience I find that ghetto blasters can do tint and stereo crap far cheaper than I would value my own time having to do it, and with decent quality.

    Their work came out impeccably... It always does. That's why I work with them. I sure couldn't do the whole car in an hour and a half like they can either.

    I feel your pain with your Corvair, Matt. It's been two and a half years with my Fleetwood, but the end finally seems to be in sight. And, hey, if your body guy jerks you around, you can alway unleash your ex on his a$$!

    Keep the faith, brother!

    Unfortunately, these kind of mistakes by by ignorant, incompetent body men have been the ruin of many a unibody car. many a Jaguar E-type has been rendered (or should have been rendered) worthless by ignorant car body hackers trying to replace floor panels.

    Has the guy offered to pay you for the cost of the car?
