Topic: Corvair Build Thread (Transcontinental Drifters)
Now that the 2014 PNW is finished (and so is our motor), I thought I would reflect on the journey that is Lemons racing. March 2014, the topic of racing comes up at work and stories flow freely (Baja, Super Bike, etc.). We realize we don't have that kind of money and don't want the stress. Lemons racing is our ticket to fame and fortune, well at least fame. Sifting through CL ads and discussing the essence (NO BMWs, POS status, etc.) of Lemons. We looked at a Legend and found out not all people do car maintenance (if there is no oil on the dipstick, do not buy the car), the owner stated "that's an easy fix". The second car we looked at was the Corvair, I had one in college, so I knew how expensive and rare they are. Another team member took his girlfriend out on their first date in one. We were sold. We found the car in a barn, it had not been registered since 1980, and did not have a radiator.
