Thanks to everyone who suggested ways to get around my stuck trunk
problem.  Unfortunately going through the list of ways to fix it quickly
indicated it was actually a problem in the lock mechanism.  Something
somewhere bound up and nothing external was going to get it open.

As its a track car and "original" isn't all that important, I ended up
entering the trunk by cutting a 2' dia hole in the bottom of the plastic
spare tire well and crawling into the trunk to remove the lock hardware. 
Not elegant, but since I have the liberty to replace that plastic tub with
a piece of aluminum, no loss.

Thanks again for all the suggestions.
