Victor, What a wonderful memory. I found the link. Soviets won the friendly 4-3 but Burger broke the total WR. Link is here https://content.time.com/time/subscriber/article/0,33009,936938,00.html

Elsewhere on this site Arthur has posted the results of the Soviet-American meets of 1958. Here is something from TIME magazine, May 26, 1958, page 82, also available online: Bantamweight Vladimir Stogov, an army chauffeur, took a turn behind the wheel of a new Ford, fled in terror when he pushed a button and the retractable hardtop began to fold.
--I think I remember reading elsewhere that this happened in Detrot in an auto factory.
