This week's story of a unique car belongs to Alumni Chuck DeRicco. It's a 1966 Chevrolet Corvair 500. This beautiful car has only 15,000 original miles and was purchased by Chuck from the second owner. When consumer advocate Ralph Nader wrote his scathing report about the  Corvair titled "unsafe at any speed ", he obviously didn't realize that a half-century later these little gems would be sought after by classic car enthusiasts.
