Chevrolet Corsair Monza. The Corvair was the target of Ralph Nader's car safety campaign in the mind-1960s.

Great to see one. The Husky now is the rarest of all Imp variants, I think it is also the most practical (great for supermarket shopping). I picked up a very rotten example fifteen years ago, thinking I could marry it with a rust free Saloon shell I have in store. Still needs to be done :oops:

Was that Not safe at any speed?

A manual car as well was that unusual for a Corvair?

Not quite as exciting as the Imp or Corvair, but I regularly see this little runner on my way into work:

Cant usualy get a photo as I'm on my own and driving, but had a "co-pilot" when I got these phots! (Albeit a co-pilot with rather dodgy photography skills!! :lol: )

I was in Lyttleton a couple of weeks ago and all I saw was Gary McCormick. More of a relic than a classic.
