Tucson Welcomes Veterans Home
March 2012

On March 31, 2012 a parade was held in downtown Tucson to welcome home the veterans of the Iraq/Afghanistan wars. The Tucson Corvair Association supported the affair with a donation and a caravan of Corvairs. The TCA members that participated were Ken and Heidi Farr with their '64 yellow convertible, Ron Bloom with his Greenbrier, Van Pershing and the Stinger, John and Amy Young with their '66 Monza, Jim Mills driving Dave Lynch's Monza, Fred Nuñez with his Rampside and Charlie and Sandy Evans with the monster V-8 Monza. It was a bad day for a couple of the cars. The Evans' V-8 had a fuel problem just before we got to the staging area and had to call it a day. Fred's Rampside also had a fuel problem in the staging area and was force to abort the mission. Fred ended up riding in Dave's car with Jim Mills.
