The DUNTOV LETTER by David Kennedy from Hot Rod Magazine

This is excerpted from MSN.com and tells the story of the beginnings of Corvette!  This is a story few know very well and thank you to the work of David Kennedy of Hot Rod magazine, here are the basics!

"It seems impossible to imagine a hot rod world without Chevrolet or its small-block engine—but there was a time that neither played a part in our arena. In the 1950s Fords dominated hot rodding, and the Blue Oval’s flathead was the V8 of…

The Great California Street Rod Civil War

At the 1973 Street Rod Nationals (or so the story goes), rod builders Andy Brizio and Lil’ John Buttera got into a, shall we say, friendly discussion about which end of the Golden State produced the best street rods. Southern Californian Buttera ribbed Brizio, who was from South San Francisco, about how the Bay Area cars were “average” mechanically but were topped by outstanding paint jobs to make them seem more special. Brizio, in turn, said L.A. turned out trick show cars that couldn’t be driven very far. One thing led to another and (so the story goes) the discussion devolved into a “my new car will be better than your new car” challenge.

It was true, though, that their public adoption had been limited, and they were mostly scarce and expensive. What Henry really did is put…

A special note of thanks to Mike.
