NOTE THE DATE CHANGE FROM JUNE 2020 TO MAY 2021

The Corvair Preservation Foundation is pleased to present a mini-convention called:
"Corvair - The Next Generation", that will be held at the Crowne Plaza in Springfield, Illinois. This event is designed to attract and entertain Corvair lovers of all ages as we look to preserve the future of our hobby and its air-cooled legacy while having a lot of fun.

There will be plenty of activities including a Concours on Thursday (with the appearance of a "special" Corvair, maybe two), swap meet, tech session, funkana, road tour, banquet with guest speaker, and a new added car display event on Saturday for the working crowd. All things Corvair are welcome.

One of our exciting highlighted features this year will be special guest speaker, Mr. William Wynne of FlyCorvair.net who is well-known for converting Corvair engines into airplane engines. After all, Corvair engines are aircraft inspired. As a special treat, a Corvair powered airplane will be on display and William may have a surprise to go with it. Invite your aviation friends who may find this very interesting. If you want to learn more about what William does, go to You Tube and search "WW Fly Corvair".

Another new feature will be a Corvair-themed Art Show at the hotel for folks who want to bring their original paintings, sketches, renderings, photographs, or three-dimensional artwork pieces made from Corvair parts for others to enjoy. Please bring your own easel or stand for display.

The Crowne Plaza is now accepting room reservations at a rate of $105 per night (no meals included). This hotel is pet friendly so bring your fur family members with you.
