PINEWOOD DERBY CAR SHOWCASE
Stampy - Brian Masek
Stampy was built by my son Grant (8) and I, and is a Wing car.
Coke Duo - Brian Masek
The Diet Coke and Coke cars are also the Wing; I built them to test different axle preparation methods.
Lego Kra-Gl-e - Steve Miller
Like most boys, my son David loves Legos. We have seen many Lego block cars, but wanted to try something different. While we were playing one day, I looked at his Lego Kra-Gl-e (from the Lego Movie - Krazy Glue with some letters missing) and the shape just struck me as the ideal pinewood derby car. We had a lot of fun building it together and thought we might win a design award. Last year our car looked cool, but did not even make it down the track. With a few helpful tips from your newsletter, he not only won best design, but also first place in his division (Wolves). The look on his face was priceless.
