We Can Reminisce. 

Welcome to the official website of the 2012 International Convention of the Corvair Society of America (CORSA).  This was the 42nd annual CORSA Convention, held on Wednesday through Saturday, July 25 through July 28.  It is now history, but we can reminisce.  More than 780 CORSA people and 200 Corvairs came to the Convention, excluding spectators and other visitors from the public.

The 2012 Convention was held at the Sturbridge Host Hotel & Conference Center in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.  It included a full menu of meetings and events for every kind of Corvair enthusiast, including: Concours d; Elegance, Car Display, Road Rally, Autocross, Special Interest Group Meetings, General Membership Meeting, Tech Sessions, Swap Meet, Parts Vendors, and more. 

And there were activities for other members of the family, too, including Bus Tours, a big Atrium Picnic and Ice Cream Social, a judged Model Car Contest, Valve Cover Racing, and two "how-to" demonstrations for making Jewelry and Holiday Ornaments. 

The entire Convention was capped off with a grand Awards Banquet on Saturday night with special Guest Speaker, Richard Lentinello from Hemmings Motor News.  And as further entertainment, we got to see a video greeting at the banquet from fellow Corvair enthusiasts, Jay Leno.

The 2012 CORSA Convention was brought to you by the Northeast Corvair Council (NECC), which has maintained a close and valuable relationship with the Corvair Society of America for many years.  NECC is famous for conducting time trials at major racetracks across the United States, and has been putting Corvairs on the track since its inception, way back in 1974!
