Watch it here: 1969 Corvette Rally Car Runs Hard in Swiss Race

It's not everyday you see a Corvette participating in a real rally. Add that this 'Vette is a C3 (!!) in Switzerland, and you've got the makings of a real mystery. We don't know who's driving it or or how it placed, but we do know that they're awesome. Check it out in the link above.
