Restoring Corvairs In a small rural town in Massachusetts, there is a thriving business surrounding a car that hasn't been made in some thirty years. The Corvair... the car that launched the public safety career of Ralph Nader... was discontinued after concerns about the design of the car were made public. Steve Tripoli of member station WBUR in Boston visited a business that sells parts for Corvairs... which still have a loyal following after all these years, both here in America and around the world.
