I'm not exactly sure whether "obsolete" is the best term to use when describing older automobiles (the Corvair) or fighter planes (the Corsair). (The prior comments discuss both.) Neither cars nor airplanes are currently obsolete even if older models are no longer desirable for other than collecting or historical purposes. Compare this to say typewriters or VHS recorders. With that said, I can't say that I'm either glad that the Corvair and Corsair are gone or I definitely miss them (resulting in a solid 3 stars).4

Way back when and for a very short time, I was co-owner (with a couple of other girls) of one of these cars (and I use the word loosely). Irish is exactly right - a supreme POS. It broke down time and again and once in the middle of the night in front of a graveyard. I finally sold my third of the car and bought a camera - the best trade-in I ever made. Yes, indeed, if there is a hell for cars, these are all there and spinning. 4

The Chevy Corvair is the car which made Ralph Nader famous. He wrote "Umsafe at any Speed" about the Corvair, much of his assertions (but not all) having been debunked as exaggerated and some actually untrue as time has passed. He was known, by my generation and our parents, as a "consumer advocate. " I know, now he's known as an environment advocate and the republican presidents' trump card.4

Well if you mean the Corsair Navy fighter, it became obsolete sometime after the Korean War (thanks for the information numbah)] I suspect you mean the Corvair, which was a genuine POS, and was obsolete the day it rolled off the assembly line.6

I'm thinking I might have the wrong model name here. I was thinking of the model that Ralph Nader killed after several of them exploded upon being rear-ended.3
