Show Cars - Joe Burns

I was at my in-law's house over the holidays, and their neighbor came over and asked if I wanted to see his son's pinewood derby cars. This neighbor works in a body shop and it shows. The cars have an unbelievable amount of detail - the pictures don't do the cars justice. They built all these from scratch without kits like they have today.

Model T - Duane Rubink

This car was built by my dad and me about 34 years ago; it's my pride and joy. My dad is such a talented woodworker. I remember this car ran just like an old model T, shaky and slow, but what a looker! It's pretty old and beat up now, but it is of great value to me.

It's Fast! - John Phillips

I made this car for last year's races. The side rails are 1/32 inch aircraft plywood, with a wire starting bar. I don't really have a name for the car but it is fast!
