Corvair Junkyard Visit

      Comments Off on Corvair Junkyard Visit

In the morning I went out to John’s Salvage Yard in Seguin looking for a Corvair core. I had found some cores a decade ago — and had pulled them apart successfully. But those I’d given away for next to nothing. Craigslist was coming up cold, as was facebook. I did want to get moving on a Corvair build, and I figured even if the core didn’t turn that was okay because I was wanting to do something with a core motor in my shop — even if the end result wasn’t a usable motor a little fun might be had while searching for a better one. Wait not, want not. John had some Corvairs and so I went hunting. It was typical Texas shopping:

I went out back in the heat and started looking for the Corvairs — and I walked right past them. Several times. What a noob. But there were stacks of them:

I started clambering onto the cars looking for hidden treasure.
