Ernie from Louisville, KY

I am a retired teacher. I have two nice Corvairs and am the local president of our Louisville Corvair club. I have been driving diesels 25 years. Started out with VW's and bought a '84 190D 5 speed. That thing was tough. I currently have a '99 E300TD. I am trying to sell my nice '95 E300D. Both cars are nice, serviced and in tip-top shape. They are really 2 different animals! One gets 30/35 mpg and the other gets 27/31. Care to guess which is which?

Welcome to the forum.
Please complete your profile with the car mod and location, by clicking 'User CP' on the top tool bar, to make it easier for members to offer advice.
My son's friend recently completed the re build of his Corvair, with the help of the president of the local Corvair club. The man is a Snap On distributor, which came in handy.

There are some differences between the Euro grey import, and the US spec cars.

The forum archive has a wealth of information available at your finger tips.
Please make sure to carefully read the 'Welcome to the Forum' tutorial sticky on top.
It will show how to run a forum search (needs words of more than 3 letters).

Also, the service manual sticky lists all the pdf files. If you post with the request for a specific file(s), someone will post it for you.
