Fun Facts

  • The Ramblin Wreck from Georgia Tech, which has driven out onto the field for Georgia Institute of Technology home games since 1961, is a 1930 Ford Model A Sport coupe.
  • Ever heard of George P. Burdell? Even if you have, you'll never meet him. That's because his existence is a practical joke, created by a Georgia Institute of Technology student in 1927 after receiving an extra enrollment form. Even so, Burdell has managed to earn multiple degrees from the school. He also got married.
