Bernie Pringle's Canadian 1966 ex-Turbo Corsa/Crown V8 conversion, arriving at Lake Tahoe in 1999.

Some info from Bernie:

Crown V8 conversion  done in 1970, won World of Wheels in Calgary 1971.  Engine is '68 Vette 350 HP 327.  Still original factory soft top.
As far as I know, it was ordered by the Chev dealer in Downtown Calgary
and was then taken as a driver by the dealer's wife,  Then sold to Al
Cutler, who did the original Crown conversion, after toasting  the
engine driving back  from Edmonton to Calgary.  It won a number of car
shows and was driven to Mexico and back.  Al sold it to a friend of his,
I could get  the name later, and he sold it to me. It was written up in
the Corsa magazine sometime in the early '70's - maybe '72.
