    I don't think there ever was an FM1 - maybe the sportscar, though the term was never used
    One of the works FM2s went to Neil Doyle, the other to Peter Hughes. I think both cars are still around

    This site has me digging out boxs that the Mrs thought were gone, told her they would come in handy one day.
    Went out with Dave Schollum and his FF, this was a Friday practice at Puke and first time i had seen one of these up close. Not good photos but chances are they were from box brownie or something i snuck off mum.
    One thing that has changed, is the Japs invented tyre/room savers and they do the transport job good now.

    The McRae GM3 with the perspex cockpit was rebodied into the single seat Can-Am GM9.
    They are both great looking cars.

    Nigel, these are fantastic photos! I always felt the Lola T300 looked a bit ungainly from certain angles, but quite stunning from other angles. You've certainly caught those cars in their best light. They really look good!

    One of the early F5000 historic meets at Pukekohe with F5000, F3000, FHolden, Can Am, and a Chev powered McLaren Indycar.

    The photos from the last five posts were all sent to me by Dale Mathers, who was given a bunch of old photos many years ago by his good mate Peter Hanna.

    The Begg 018, absolutely the best looking F5000 ever. IMHO.

    Went ok with Jim Murdoch as well.

    These are neat pics. What sort of car is the red/white/blue #23?

    Yeah, I agree a great looking car. George Begg's book "When The Engine Roars" paints a great picture of the design and build of these cars, and how Murdoch burnt himself out in building this car. Imagine how well it could have gone if he were in full health.

    To my mind one of the best looking of all F5000s was this Begg FM5, which I think was Allan McCullys car? Gavins photo below captures the lines of the car perfectly. Does this car still have the Robin Officer alloy body?
