Corvette SR-2 -- 2
"This is the only photo I know of showing the SR-2 painted Purple. This was the first car named "Purple People Eater" when Jim Jeffords owned it. This shot was taken at Sebring in March 1958. Note Jim Jefford's with his back to us, and a very young Augie Pabst leaning on the rear fender.  Augie was a good friend (and still is) of Jim's and was his back up driver for this race."
"The car today.  It was restored in 1990 by current owner Rich Mason with the more familar paint colors of deepwater dark blue that it wore in 1957 and later".
