    Does anyone have photo's of the George Reed garage, RRR from the early 60's?

    Trying to track history of 250 GT road car and not a racing car. Seems easy to find pics of him racing, but not of cars that came through his company...

    I might have someone that can help. Send me the specs on the car and let me see what I can do.

    The car was "over hauled" by Chaz (or Chas) Pritchard at some point in the late 60's. Does anyone know if he is still around?

    That space is now my office. I was test driving an old Ferrari last night and telling the salesman about the connection. I'm amazed by what google can find.

    That's kind of cool....I will take a set of Good Year Blue Streaks to fit 15X7 wheels as soon as you get them in :)
