TELL US ABOUT YOUR FIRST CORVETTE—Phil Rankin told his story about seeing a 1960 corvette on **** Butler’s car lot in Pittsburg in 1968 and wanting to buy it but his Dad wouldn’t let him have it. In 1971 while living in Topeka, he found a 1966 Big Block coupe in Olathe. Not having any money, he talked his banker into financing it. The banker would not issue the check until he saw the car so Phil picked up the car and wrote a hot check for it. On the way from KC to Topeka however, he busted the rear end and couldn’t get the car to the bank. It went straight to the repair shop. He did however talk the banker into covering his check. He still owns the car.
