One of the most controversial cars ever made, Chevrolet''s Corvair is celebrated in this unique pictorial history. From his files on the Corvair - which he first road-tested in 1959 - Karl Ludvigsen presents a plethora of photos of the original ''Holden'' prototypes on test and even a Corvair engine installed in a Porsche, its first running test bed.

Photos of the production Corvairs down through the years are interspersed with wild and woolly prototypes and concept cars based on this unique rear-engined auto, the one whose unusual handling helped make Ralph Nader famous.
