I hadn't heard of the car here, but I know someone who will probably know. I'll let you (and Willem) know.

Hope all is well.
Tommy Friedman was my dad. He owned one of the first European auto supply and repair shops in Atlanta. It was located down off Baker St.
I've got some info on the D type that he ran..the serial number was xkd545 and he purchased it from George Constantine. I still have the original bill of sale from George to my dad. Looking at the pictures I have of the car it seems to be painted a dark maroon color with white rondels ...My dad always said the car won in Sebring and was at one time a Scotish racing team practice car....I remember a name "Ivor Bueb" ? .Anyhow...Thanks for kind being kind enough to mention my dad and post a picture.

At least she missed the Georgia clay on the apex. Isn't there a song that mentions that stuff?

Ray: That Porsche is being driven by a girl. Nedra Ware and in her first race in an MG TD while she was 8 1/2 months pregnant at the time, she beat all the men.

Here are the lyrics the sight of that clay reminded me of:
"I remember to this day
The bright red Georgia clay
And how it stuck to the tires
After the summer rain
Will power made that old car go
A woman's mind told me that so
Oh how I wish
We were back on the road again"
Women and tyres again! But I found there was a song called "Georgia Clay" as well...
