Entry #2 for this month's LUGNuts challenge. It seems the wacky show rods are a popular choice this month and this model of a classic Hot Wheels design by Larry Wood, or Elwood as he was sometimes called is no exception. Also chosen for nostalgia, Stagefright is one of the craziest rods around. A rear engine dragster in stagecoach body definitely grabs your attention. This model features fully functional Power Functions RC and working front suspension.

    I was at a LUGmates house last night and we were talking about this months build challenge and he pulled out a couple of his old hotwheels and this was one of the few he held on to. I kid you not I said this would be a great car to build not more than 24 hours ago. You definitely don´t disappoint. Right on Nathan.

    Oh, nice! Love the whole design, but I gotta say that rooftop is kickin' it.

    Amazing! After seeing the crazy design of this, I found it very hard to believe that it had power functions!!! Nice work!
