The Blastolene Indy Special
The 2nd Monster Rod built by Randy Grubb
The second monster rod during Randy’s Blastolene building period, was the Indy Special. It was Randy’s homage to the A.J. Watson Indy Roadster race cars from the 50’s and 60’s. The Indy Special is powered by another M47 Patton tank engine. The wheel base was trimmed back to 160 inches to capture the Watson’s proportions. The body was much more elaborate than the first car. It was sold to private collector.
