Kohler Brothers 'King Kong'

Some credit the Kohler Bros. with coining the term "Rat Motor" after that was lettered on the injector scoop in 1965. If Striper, one of the members here, knew sign painter Jack Burr maybe he can shed some light on that story.
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

I'm not sure if absolute claim to the term "Rat Motor" could be claimed by the Kohler Bros. but that term was pretty much coined during that time period . I don't remember a lot of the specifics of the lettering on that car other than Jack Burr doing it . He was a pretty busy guy back then as there weren't that many sign guys specializing in race cars .
