    Cool pics, but man I wish they were bigger. It's really hard to see any detail. Looks like it could be a really neat car.

    Very cool A40! You've done a great job from what I see so far! I blew them up as large as I could, but they got a little blurry doing so.

    Figure I'd Bump this one back up...
    Found this pic here on the HAMB from the Meltdown Drags Thread. Definitely a cool car!
    Anyone know any more history on this car? Maybe have some old pictures of it?

    from what i was told it was built late sixtys early seventies on the east coast dont know builder, original name of car was shake ,rattle, and run,and then was sold to a guy who owned a crane company and was called master blaster, painted white,then sold to the owner before me in n.y. he moved to florida with the car, stripped her down and converted it to the street. and painted it green. i bought it in2012 and proceeded to put the straight axle under it. freshened up the green and added all the gold leaf and recalled it pure acid after a willys i heard of . i was going for a certain look with the car hopefully i captured it, funds are running low so i wont be racing it this year. next year for sure, for now just takin it to shows... thanks for all the compliments, rich
