CPotD #94 (Corvamino)

I limit my blog reading to a handful of people I like to call blogsmiths. To me, a true blogsmith combines the written word with adequate photos and video to produce an informative, entertaining consumer of roughly five minutes of my day. The fact that they write on subjects automotive in nature moves them to the top of my list. One of my favorite blogs is He’s been “serving useless content from an undisclosed location since 1997,” and I’ve been an avid reader since at least 2005.

What does this have to do with the above CPotD? Well, Chuck’s posting of yesterday included photos of two unique Corvairs that participated in the rally he wrote about. The first was a nice looking UltraVan, while the second was today’s deserving Wacky Wednesday subject. When I commented to him that I was going to feature his photo in my blog, he graciously responded with more photos.

One of the Chuck’s readers appropriately called this vehicle a Corvamino. I imagine if Corvairs had actually been built by GM’s ute-loving Australian division, Holden, one could have purchased a Corvamino from their local Chevy dealer.

  1. I've thought about building one of these for many years now, ever since I saw one at a Central PA "Corvair Days" meet in York, PA back in the mid-1980's It looks like such a cool little trucklet!
