The Original 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Super Sport Racer (SSR)
The Car Our Club Was Named After
The Chevrolet Corvette 'SS' was an experimental magnesium-bodied car and set a New Lap Record at Sebring, Florida, in 1957. But success at Sebring for this stunning racer was unfortunately short lived. Although the SS was extremely fast for its day (top recorded speed of 183 mph), a suspension problem forced it to retire from the race after 23 laps in the Sebring 12-Hour race. Juan Manuel Fangio, the winner at Sebring in 1957, was impressed enough with the car to test the SS under practice conditions. The results was astonishing.
