An extremely important car that was at the beginning of Chevrolet Performance as we know it.

I believe this is the ex Rich Mason car, which was raced extensively by Rich, later sold by Corvette Mike to Irwin Kroiz and apparently now Freshened/Restored not sure which by Mackay.

----The SR with the smaller fin, which belonged to Richard Fortier (owner of Paragon for a long time) was Jack Douglass's for part of one summer when he was a teenager. Jacks Dad was a prominent GM executive before he founded the Chevy dealer we all know about. He must have had a high standing to just sign that SR out for the better part of a summer!......Bill S

----Not sure if Richard still owns that SR or not.

SR2 owned by Don Yenko later sold to a guy from my area, Cookie Knuth. Cookie traded a 66 or 67 427 vette + cash to Don. Don said it was truly the most terrible car he had ever driven. A friend of mine drove this car to his HS prom.

First pic is at a car show in Wheeling W.va

That's an awesome car to see in person. Irwin is a perfectionist,every one of his cars is stunning. Kevin does a great job.

I think it had just had a 125K restoration before Irwin got it and apparently it was restored again ?
