Found this on another forum - Gordon Murray (Of Formula 1 fame) shamelessly steals a MK1 Scamp affraid and tries to palm it off as his own. Evil or Very Mad

I think we need to expose this fraud - how many other car designs carrying his name have actually been stolen redcard

Chaz,

We spoke with Jeroen Booij at the IMM last year......and bought a copy of his book which he was signing for everyone Rolling Eyes
Although very similar to Scamp I believe that the IGM Minibug had more round tubes. Murry claims to have made four.

Murry wrote a foreword to Jeroen's book

It seems strange that he would claim a such a basic design when he appears to have designed much more sophisticated vehicles.
Where did you get your info.....?

Incidentally, Chris Westgate spent quite a time with Jeroen and many pictures of his Scamp were taken.....for the next edition of the book.

I met Jeroen Booij at the IMM in 2009,he took pictures of my Mk1 because he was writing another book of Mini based utility vehicles. If it comes off I bet mr Gordon Murray will think "who's nicked my classic design?" Which came first,the Chicken or the egg?
