Suncoast Corvair Club member Chris Shepherd is checking in from the 2017 CORSA Convention and sent these images and remarks.
"I checked into the International Corvair Convention on Tuesday morning and was given my registration package containing my badge, dash placard, T-shirt, and the list of program activities along with tickets for the ice cream social hour and banquet.
Next on the agenda was to checkout all the parts vendors both inside the hall and out in the parking lot. I did find several items that I needed for my 62 Spyder. Clarks was also here but they did not bring their usual truck full of parks. Instead they were taking orders and offered 12% off for cash and 7% off for credit cards and checks. Needless to say, I dropped a load of cash with them when I ordered all my wiring harnesses, all the rubber seals and door fuzzies, a new gas tank, all the pre-bent brake and fuel lines, door and window handles, and door hinge pins and bushings. I also ordered new rear wheel bearing for my 64 which were on sale plus I got the 12% cash discount to boot.
I then attended the Concours Judges meeting for a review of the rules and unit assignments.
The rest of the day was spent looking at cars and talking with attendees before going to the Welcome Party/Ice Cream Social. Alive cover races completed the day.
It was an early start today Wednesday with the Judges meeting at 8 and the Concours starting at 9. I was judging Unit 3 (glass, trim and seals) for the 27 late models that were entered. There were around 48 cars, vans, wagons, and trucks entered. We finished around 1pm and the Host Club provided lunch for us. A good but tiring day. Here are pictures of the Concours cars."
