Rickmann's daily driver Corvette, pinstriped and scalloped by Von Dutch

that is classy.

Because he was the photographer for Hot Rod Magazine, Rickmann worked with the best in the business. He was connected to everyone, and occasionally when the hot new part needed to be installed on something, well, the Corvette was available to fit the new intake, carbs, exhaust...

Notice the carbs sticking through the hood, side pipes... it got the coolest stuff added on. He didn't garage it, left the top down 365, and withing a couple years it was sold off. The new owner didn't have it long before a wiring short burnt it down. Blamed Rickmann for the shoddy wiring, backyard rigged work... but the car was a wreck and used up.
