This photo appeared in the June 1971 issue of Life Magazine. This is the text under the picture of the astronaut’s Corvettes. “Next, to the brand-new red, white, and blue Chevrolet Corvettes belonging to Apollo 15’s three astronauts, James Irwin, Alfred Worden, and David Scott (left to right), the LRV looks homely but also quite functional. The cost of designing and producing three Rovers-one for each of the three final Apollo missions-plus spare parts and other paraphernalia was $37,800,000, almost twice the contractor’s original estimate.”
