unsafe at any speed

That's what Ralph Nader told us in 1965 about Chevrolet's Corvair Spyder.  His book & testimony before congress changed the way Detroit built cars - and spelled the death of Chevy's sporty little model.  And now, around a bend in State Road 56 sits the object of Nader's wrath - for sale.  The owner tells me he is too sick to keep collecting things, so the Covair is on the block, along with a Studebaker Avanti and a boat.  Who knows, this little coupe may outlive its drivers & its critics.
