I had forgotten about the Pinto. If somebody rear-ended you, there was a good chance the gas tank would be ruptured. The Corvairs had a Volkswagen type swing-axle that some people thought was dangerous.
Corvair's single-piece steering column could impale the driver in a front collision, leaked oil like the Exxon Valdez, the heating system force fed fumes into the cab (gasoline burner heater), etc. lol
We had a friend convert his into a water-cooled mid-engine (small-block Chevy) with the normal water heater. That improved the car tremendously.
