Old Cars Reader Wheels: 1957 Corvette Custom

Some might call it the "Batmobile," but Randy Koch refers to the custom Chevy as "Ravyn."

Batman has got nothing on Randy Koch's 'Vette. 

Randy shared his story behind his "Ravyn."

"She was modified back in 1967 by Von Hunter who apprenticed under George Barris.

"My grandfather bought her in 1979."

"His original intent, before actually seeing her, was to restore her back to stock. As a hobby he restored 'Vettes to award winning condition. He had at least one Top Flight Award and he only entered in a few car shows."

"We all called her the Batmobile."

"He gave her to me in 2003. I have added some of my own touches and personality to go with what I feel is her personality."

"We gave her a proper name, Ravyn." But she will always answer to the Batmobile as well! I show her and drive her all the time, all around the Pacific Northwest!"
