Corvair Mania at Great Western Fan Belt Toss

It's been a while since I treated you to a full fledged photo essay, so I feel like I owe you one. Fortunately, the Southern California CORSA Club were in town last week for their awesome Great Western Fan Belt Toss, and considering my fondness for the air cooled wonder from Willow Run I thought I would go down and snap a few pictures.

Certainly no shortage of Corvairs at this event, either. Plenty of first year 1960s including mid-year coupes, a ton of first generation convertibles and several Spyders, a large selection of second generation 'Vairs as well, and an Evening Orchid '65 Monza (it's not a Corvair show without one.)

Not to be missed were an awesome selection of Corvair trucks, including pickups, Corvans, and Greenbriers. In the department of truly seldom seen were three lightweight aluminum Ultra Van Motorhomes, featuring Corvair running gear. One of the 22' RVs featured an intact original interior and was open for touring.

All in all a great day in Palm Springs- enjoy the photos!
