    Does anyone know of any historical records or information from the 60's regarding Reed's Garage?

    Does anyone know if either of these individuals, or friends/family, are still in the Ferrari world?

    I ran my automotive repair business at 18009 Harwood Ave in Homewood IL for 16 years. These pictures were given to me from Dale Moody a good customer and friend of mine. Dale was also part of the Reeds Race Rats, pictured is George and this is what Dale says about them.
    "The last La Carrera Panaericana in 1954 was won by Umberto Maglioli in a Ferrari 375 + The car pictured here (one of only five built) which I took in front of the Homewood Garage in Homewood, IL, then home of RRR Motors (Reed's Race Rats), could be the the ex-Froilan Gonzales/Maurice Trintignant Ferrari that won LeMans in 1954, but not sure of that.. Pictured below is George Reed getting ready to take his then newly-acquired 375+ for a test drive, probably in the winter of 1956. George bought this 375+ from Luigi Chinetti and later raced it with a Holman & Moody 428 Ford, replacing the 5 Ltr. Columbo SOHC V12."
