After my computer crashed , I lost images of this car .

As I recently purchased an A 30 , I'm keen to gather new ones .

I used to have a lovely full frame shot of the car in " The Tunnel " at Catalina , I think it was a Chris Snowden photo .

Can anyone post some images of the car please?

I think the Catalina meeting was early 1964 .

I have a terrible grainy old photo of an A30 at Gnoo Blas at first Touring Car championship meeting.  Don't know who the driver is though.  Can post if it is of interest or send you a copy.  Regards

That looks like Brian Muir ' s A 30 , he used to tape over the door hinges for stream lining .

An early edition of SCW mag had an article on his car , highly modified..

I checked the 1960 ATCC entry list , no A 30 's entered . only the Foley Farina A 40 , so I reckon the pic . is from an earlier Bathurst meeting .
