After Mid Summers Dream Chris Cummings built this little road racer. Here's an early pic of it. Wonder whatever happened to it?

I remember Chris' MANTA being on Display in Wollongong's Crown Central Multi Level car park. It was a "Stingray Promotions" show. Stingray Promotions was a joint venture business of Bruce Flynn (Ex Van Wheels Magazine and others) and John Strachan (Alley Cat).

I also remember dropping in at C&H Auto's? pre Chris's death and the name change to Radical Innovations. At that time the boys were building a gun metal grey HQ sedan for the Australian Cannonball Run running a Big Block Oldsmobile? engine. Slight brain fade here. But I do remember the nose cone being welded to the guards for the smooth seamless look, I guess this was in 1983. This was also the place where the "Cat" became "legal".
