PINEWOOD DERBY CAR SHOWCASE
We are out of cars for the showcase, so I am highlighting our cars from 2009. Please submit your cars as detailed below - thanks.
Street Rod - Janel Davis
This car wasn't particularly competitive, but I wanted to use up an extra PineCar kit that I had lying around. It took fourth place, in the Outlaw behind the extended wheelbase cars with four disk wheels (instead of the two disk wheels on this car).
Green Stealth - Stephen Davis
This car came from my son's imagination. The green ball is a plastic marble that is just there to "look cool". The car is painted with flat black paint, and trimmed with 1/4 inch green pinstriping. We used needle axle wheels, allowing the car to easily blow away the competition to take first place. In addition, it took third in design.
