Take a look at the pic Bob W just uploaded. Rapid Rat looks like pure unadulterated fun

Thanks for the welcome, Torch. This was my Dad's car he built and raced when I was young. I spent many years (before the interwebs) looking for it, but came up empty handed.

He owned several Corvettes over the years- the '56; a '61, 2 '62's, and a '67. I don't have many photos on this computer, but let me see what I can find....

... Here is the article from the Mar. '69 issue of Hot Rod magazine. There is a write-up about the chassis also, but for some reason I didn't scan it. Looks like I need to do some digging.

Looks like I need to get a better scan of it so you can actually read it...
