Welcome to the forum Henry. Sorry to hear of Freds death. He was a great chap, not only a member but a founder member and President. I have happy memories of Fred at the scamp picnic at Ottershaw. I saw the scamp your father built ( a copy) in Newhaven East Sussex about 15 years ago. I'm sure quite a few members of the club will remember Fred, and would love to see some early pictures of him and the scamps. Will be interesting to see how many people / cars we can recognise. Keep in touch.

Hellow Henry,it's good to here from the SOC founder's son. Fred,indeed was a great fellow and I have fond memories when I met him at the Ottershaw picnics. His old Scamp turned up a about 8 - 10 years ago at one of the Southern Mini Days events at the Paddock Wood Hop Farm(they have been at Bewel Water over recent years).I remember him making his Scamp to his exacting standards and it was a brilliant piece of work.I remember when Fred threw in the towel with the SOC and emigrated to New Zealand,I think it took everyone by surprise at the time,but Steve Taylor took on the reigns and kept the flag flying.If my memory serves me right,he did come over for a visit at some point and caught up with us all. Anyway,it would be good to meet up with you sometime. Excuse the slightly blurred picture(I think that could be you and your dad behind the Scamp);

thanks for those pictures as much as i have enough pictures of him its always good too see new ones! will put the pictures up in the not too distant future i even have a trophy....best modification award i think.

and yes dan saaf he did leave quite "randomly" and it was all rather off the cuff, he wishes he started something similar to scamp owners over here....instead he brought a boat and a Triumph Bonneville 2002 which took up all his time and money Very Happy would love to come to a meeting one day...maybe when im over next i shall stop by?
