crossed-flags emblem on their all-American race car. The very first Corvettes,

The following year, 1956, marked the beginning of Corvette's racing legacy, and
the following year brought such high-performance options as fuel injection, a
heavy-duty brake and suspension package, and four-speed transmission. With

world-class performance was upheld with features such as independent rear
suspension, fuel injection, racing brakes and suspension, and the Positraction

afford a trailer. One evening Earnie was driving them home from a meet at
Lexington in their Chevy pickup truck, which sported a matching maroon paint job
that mirrored the Corvette race car. They were passing through a small town
