A Legend Lost
It is with great sorrow that we announce the death of Wayne R. Obry who passed away Friday, March 11, 2016. He will be remembered as one of the greats in the Ferrari world and as a loving husband and father.
In 1979, Wayne started his restoration business in his garage at his home in Hortonville, WI and grew the business into a world class restoration facility. Known worldwide for his knowledge of the Ferrari Marque, Wayne not only was a lifetime IAC/PFA Judge but became a Vintage Ferrari consultant for the Ferrari factory in Maranello, Italy.
Those who knew Wayne understood his passion for cars and enjoyed his many stories which he loved to share over the years. Throughout his career he had the privilege of working on some of the most rare and beautiful cars in the world and truly appreciated the opportunity to travel worldwide showing and inspecting cars for his clients.
This passion and understanding of vintage automobiles will live on through the legacy he built with Motion Products, Inc.
