Clark’s Corvair Parts

Clarks w solar 120312

Enjoyed Cal Clark graciously showing me around Clark’s Corvair Parts in Shelburne Falls MA. For those not steeped in all things Corvair, Clark’s is by far the largest Corvair parts supplier — eight buildings! — and likely there would be far fewer Corvairs running today if not for his shop and dedication. And I’m pleased to say the famed Clark’s catalog will feature Lifemobile in its new edition coming out in a few months.
One fascinating note: Cal has installed new solar panels that when the switch is thrown next week should provide more than enough power for his entire operation — and more!  The cutting edge of modern tech — solar energy — meets the cutting edge (well, sort of, kinda) of 1960’s auto technology, the Corvair.
