I was a college student in Reading Pa. in 1967. I had just purchased a unique Corvair. It was one of the Corsa models modified by racing great John Fitch. Called the "Fitch Corsa Sprint", mine was even more unique, having been ordered by a resturantuer in New York City. It was finished in dark metallic green with a saddle tan interior. The special fitch roof was fitted along with engine enhancements. What really made the car unique was that all factory nameplates had been removed by Fitch and the original fuel filler was leaded in and a Monza filler was centrally located on the forward fuel tank.
Now the story: I was late for class one morning and coming through town I also managed to run out of gas. I coasted into a parking spot and set out on foot to find a gas station. When I returned, 15 minutes later, I was greeted by a parking ticket and summons as I had had no change to put into the meter. The police officer must been thoroughly confused by the non stock appearance of the car and the total lack of G.M. or Chevy branding. Obviously frustrated, he found the only wording on the car that identified it. Thus, I think I am the only car owner ever to have received a parking violation for a "Green Michelin two door coupe".
