Time flies by. Anyway, this weekend, with my grandson, I clayed and waxed my Corvair with Meguiars Ultimate Liquid.

I built a 1964 969 a LONG time ago. 969 is Corvair talk for a 4 door Monza.

I don't much much about the Corvair but that is a beautiful example, you should be proud to have such a well maintained example of a classic car smile

I watched your restoration that was posted here. I'm glad to see it is still a survivor.
