2007 Corvairitis Treatment
to be held in
in conjunction with
Hot Nite In The City August
Follow this link to the home page of Hot
Nite In The City where you will find the announcement that our beloved
Corvairs will be featured this year! You will also find their
registration forms for the Show and Shine and the Poker Run and the TShirts
plus the event schedules and other information
Please let me know that you have registered as all
registration forms go to the Hot Nite In The City organizers.
Please print the HNITC registration page
on your printer. Use yellow or your favorite colour or photocopy it onto a
coloured paper. Send the coloured copy to the HNITC folks. It will help us
tremendously finding your registration amongst all the others. BIG THANX!
Stay tuned for information about Corvairitis T
shirts and the awards banquet after the show.

Border crossing information for
attendees of Corvairitis Treatment Day:
This website provides all the information you
need and then some. It was last updated March 2007.
To quote: "It is probably not a good idea to wear
your legalize marijuana t shirt when you cross the border."
Picture ID and proof that you actually own this
classic car should be all that is necessary.
For those who have or soon will encounter the
registration form for the combined Corvairitis Treatment Day and Hot Nite In
The City, there are four major classifications, then several other categories.
The four main classifications are only if you are interested in
parking your vehicle in one of these theme areas. We will be
prestaging all our Corvairs prior to entering the show area.
Vintage applies to
vehicles built before WW2.
American Muscle theme - Mustangs,
Cudas, RoadRunners, Camaros, etc.
Sport Compact - Cobras,
Minis, MGs, etc. I think a sweet Monza Turbo coupe or convertible would fit
this group too!
Street Rod T Buckets,
Willys, 32 Highboys, vehicles built to race, and probably Corv8s!
Our Corvairs will not only be judged within our
usual categories: they will also be in competition with all the vehicles
entered for the big Show And Shine.
The categories that would apply would be:
Collector 60/65 - stock
Collector 66/69 - stock
Custom Car 49/69
Truck 49/69 - Stock FCs and UVs
Custom Truck 49/69 - FCs and UVs
"Unfinished" - bring it even if it needs a new top
or paint or whatever!
