A photo of Wayne Knudson's 1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe taken at the first Toledo Auto Rama at Toledo's Civic Auditorium in 1957. Wayne advertised the car for sale at the show, and the small sign on the cowl stated that the bodywork was done by Maedel's. "Ted Maedel was one of the first to open a speed shop after the war, and his opened around 1946 in Toledo and ended up on LaGrange Street," Mark Mazur told Sondre Kvipt in November of 2023. "Ted also did bodywork at the shop, as evidenced by the placard on the car." Photo from The Mark Mazur Collection.
