  AUSTRALIAN C.K.D ASSEMBLED RIGHT HAND DRIVE
  1949 - 1970 CHEVROLET  

MONDAY JULY 22 - 9:00PM - 10:30PM / Tradewinds Room

 

Chevrolet historian Carl Kelsen from down under will present Australian C.K.D. Assembled Right Hand Drive Chevrolet from 1949 to 1970. A nice Monday night presentation after the Welcome Party / Corvair Cruise In. What better way to relax on opening night.

Carl's Power Point Presentation will include many rarely seen photos and original sales brochure illustrations of factory export right hand drive Chevrolets. Carl will explain the fascinating story behind these unique Chevrolets and how from 1949 to 1970 General Motors Holden (GMH) assembled right hand drive Chevrolets from Completely Knocked Down (CKD) kits that had been exported to Australia.

We owe Carl a heartfelt welcome for coming all the way from Australia and putting on this special Monday Night Presentation.

   TECH SESSION - MODEL CAR - MARK CORBIN  

TUESDAY JULY 23 - 2:00PM - 2:30PM / Oakwood Room

 

This seminar will be about Corvair models, specifically about the various scale models that have in history been or still are available, the kit models and the variety of assembly skills and techniques that can be used to build them, and how such skills translate into the full-size cars in concours, plus other information that is so important as to how it relates to the Corvair hobby.

 

Please note that this talk may run into the Air'Vair Group meeting, but since it is in the same room and both meetings will be presided over by the same presenter, there may be some overrun. The scheduled start time for the Air'Vair Group will be accordingly approximate and adjusted as needed.
