Anyone know what became of the ex-Nigel Freemantle 55 ?
Mate of mine "H" from Camberley owned it for a few years in the late 80's early 90's.
Last I saw of it was when the rear window popped out while racing at the Pod

The car is sitting in my garage awaiting a decision from the wife if I can have more funds haha. I was meesed around by 2 people in the states who were selling art morrison chassis. I can sort of understand as they were going to put them into container etc. for me, I suppose someone bought them over there so a lot easier. It would be better if they put will only sell to USA. Any way these things happen for a reason. On that note I rang Lee Painter who had a 55 with a V10 Viper engine in it. This was being built by Wayne Streams and what an awesome thing it is. Lee told me he had spent a fortune on it and I could not have called at a better time ( for me) as he would sell it. A deal was struck and Wayne will continue with the rest of the build. I am looking for a good boot if anyone has one. So that leaves the other one on the back burner for a while. The lads who crewed for me on Venom are building a 55 first generation truck with a cadillac northstar engine in for my wife

and works are progressing well. That leaves the 555 cubic inch Blazer still in the garage as well as Venom as a rolling chassis. I think my pocket and my time is accounted for the next few years. However I am still trying to get a sponsor to bring a Nostalgia Funny Car out so if anybody has £50k they can have the whole car and trailer in their colours.

Lee said he had sold it but didn't realise that you were the buyer. Glad you plan to see the concept through.
