Dear Tom and Ray:

I recently bought a classic 1963 Chevrolet Corvair! I'm having a hard time finding a repair manual for it. Do you guys know where I could find one and buy it? Please help.

TOM: You need to pick up a copy of Hemmings Motor News (published in Bennington, VT) or Old Cars weekly (published in Iola, WI).

RAY: That's where other people with heaps...er.. I mean "classics" like yours advertise stuff like this. If there's a '63 Corvair manual out there, that's where you'll find it.

TOM: Or you can always take one from the glove compartment of someone else's '63 Corvair, James. Just be courteous enough to leave 'em a copy of this article so they can get a replacement.
