Hello all i must first appologise i have neve seen in person a mini scamp or an rtv. I am i a friend of Mr Robert Mandry the inventor of the mini scamp and the RTV. I and asking for you help. I would love to help roberts wife compile a collection of photos and advertising literature about the mini scamp and the RTV i can not offer any thing in return, other than the fact that i will pass on to him any information you ask me to. I cant promis he will read it he is still very bisy welding up bits of rubbish in his barn taking scrap and making it into usfu things paying little regard to cosmetics the same as the scamp and the rtv very practicle but ugly as a toad.

Where's Robert living nowadays?
Still busy in the barn! Ruddy Nora, he must be cracking on a bit now?

I answer your call because I have in my posession Roberts 3rd Mk1 demonstrator,I also have all sorts of bumf associate with my scamp. I remember those heady days at Ottershaw with the line up of RTV'S ready to go out,I also remember seeing the RTV on Tomorrow's World. He also had a project on the go making tipping trailors using the Bedford Rascal pick-up body, and if my memory serves me rightly,a gadget to spool barbed wire.We did have contact with another person who said Robert had a farm in Wiltshire and a residence still at Ottershaw,it would be good to see him again,I know that Steve Taylor(one of the Scamp Owner's Club presidents)did keep in contact with him for a while. Next February will be the 40th anniversary of a double page spread in Custom Car Magazine of my Scamp sitting outside a Church we believe to be in Ottershaw,it would be good to recreate that same picture again.Keep in touch,if he still has a farm then perhaps he might like to meet up with the SOC again?Below is one of those memorable pictures from the early picnic site.As a friend of mr Robert Mandry i ask for your help and attencion Scampi12
