Italian Fred ?

Post by sambalee » Tue Jan 02, 2018 12:32 pm

Remember Italian Fred (Younis?)who used to bring buses on trailers to shows for sale. Is he still around (hopefully alive - I have no idea) as I'm looking at getting a vehicle from Italy to wanted to get his expertise.

thanks

Lee

I met up with him looking very dapper I think Dubfeeze last year, he's a Head of Science at a London school now...or was then...
PS he's not Italian, just excelled in finding lovely Italian Splits!
But I dont have any contact info..maybe email membership team and get last contact info?

Was he not Fast Freddie on here..?
I know he was a Physics Teacher.. but I thought he had some Italian connection?
Family Friends? Relatives?
He used to trade a little too.. bringing some nice parts.. I always looked him out at Shows..
Got some nice items from him...
Yes what did happen to him?
Hope he is alive n kicking!
A true character!
