I thought I would share this article with you guys. We had a fundraising Pinewood Derby event for our District yesterday and a friend of Steve's showed up (see pic of 3 cars - ProQuest fan car down in front).
Even had the sort of paint, sort of stain, paint job.
Note the Donkey Kong rail car lurking in the back. That was my older boy's car. He ended up being "adopted" to race by a local realty company, and placed 2nd. Very stiff competition in the top 4. Lots of fun!!!
Cool! If only another 2- or 3-hundred builders would make cars like mine -- with big holes drilled in the middle instead of those sleek, creative, interesting shapes like the rest of you are doing, and finish them with wipe-on wipe-off wood-stain instead of those silly air-brushed paint jobs (especially the ones with graphics -- yuck), I'll have started an official pinewood derby fad. It could be like the Art Deco era of pinewood derby.
You guys know I'm just being silly. But seriously, the kid who built the car in the picture couldn't have been modeling his car after mine -- his car looks good. .
P.s., I do like the sound of a "ProQuest fan club" though .
