    A Milestone Crossed

    Reds Rollen Garage crossed a milestone in 2018. On May 31, 1998, Red Brabham, who founded the company with his wife, passed away of a sudden heart attack. Left with three children to feed and a business to run, Tammi, who was only 35 years old at the time, picked up the pieces and drove on.

    Tammi and family has grown the company to include Red’s Auto Center and Red’s Truck Center, as well as an ever growing family and fleet of tow trucks.

    Last year marked 20 years since the passing of Red, but Red’s is still growing strong.

    We are new subscribers and enjoy the entire magazine but the Tow Dog section is especially near and dear to our hearts. We proudly present Dudley, who is often seen riding shotgun in our flatbed tow truck. In fact, one D in our company name, D & D Transport, stands for Dudley. (By the way, the other D stands for Dave, the owner/driver.)

    Dudley is so much a part of the company that we had his name lettered on the door. He needs a lesson in customer service though, because he can get cranky if a customer takes his seat.

    D & D Transport serves the Farmington, Maine, area with flatbed towing services.
