'63 Corvair convertible, white with black top and aqua interior. 4-speed. Was 16 years old and couldn't wait to modify it. Put a 4-barrel on it with a spider manifold (thing would ice up and had all kinds of fixes for that), tinted the windows and ran the daylights out of it. Could make the tires chirp in 4th gear!! How that car held together without blowing head gaskets and clutches is still a mystery to me. My girlfriend loved that car. Traded it later for a '64 Mailbu with a 283 and a 4-speed which I started to race at Dragway 42 (whole 'nuther story).

Funny, I just saw another 63 convertible with a 4-speed at a Cruise-In this past Sunday - man brougfht back the memories.
