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.

(This car, and its twin will be further discussed in an article on needle axle wheels later this season.)
