I could never get used to that funky fan belt on a Corvair, My Uncle had a corvair with a Kelmark V8 conversion, I got a few rides in it but it was always breaking parts.

I bought a Corvair from a roommate in the 70's for $100. Had the push button transmission. Drove it for about a year.

And just today I saw a VW station wagon. Haven't seen one of those in 20 years.

As cool as the Kelmark kits were the hot set up for a Corvair is a G Body frame swap...

My first project car was a Bug. It was a 71 Super, so it had the strut suspension in the front but still had the flat windshield. I lucked into a set of 4-lug Fuchs wheels from a 914 owner for cheap from Craigslist. Those rims were probably worth more than the rest of the car combined. It was a basket case when I bought it (leaking gas, rattlecan primer paint job, rough interior, etc.) but a great project, and I do miss it...

I had a '70 with an auto-stick transmission. It was an adventure lol
I dated a checker when I was bagging groceries at Smith's, 38 years ago. She had a yellow SuperBeetle with the clutchless stick. Same thing?
I learned to drive in that car. Oh yeah...Good times.

Mine, got it when I was 16 , spend about a year bringing it back to life. It took a lot of work being as it was pulled out of a field in Western PA.

Sold it about a year after moving to LV when I got the motorcycle bug. (( sold the car , kept the girl )).
