Help! We Need Your Memories and Car Photos
We are almost out of car photos, and very low on memories. So, if you have an anecdote that is unusual, sad, heart-warming, etc., please send it to me in an e-mail. Don't worry about literary polish. We will edit as needed, and review it with you before publishing. Also, please read our submission policy by Clicking Here.
If your story is used, you will receive a copy of Volume 5 of the Pinewood Derby Times when it is compiled during the summer of 2006.
If you don't have a memory to share, then please take a digital photo of your favorite car, and send it along with a brief description of any special features to:
Please include your full name. If selected, we will include the photo and description in this newsletter. Photos must be sent by e-mail in JPG format (minimum size of 640x480 - maximum size of 1280 x 960). Please shoot photos from the front left of the car, similar to the orientation of This Car.
Send only one photo per car, unless an additional photo is needed to adequately show a feature. Also, only one car per subscriber please.

MV Car Kit
|Are you dissatisfied with the kits used by your organization? In answer to the concerns expressed by many people, we are now offering a top quality kit at an attractive price. Features include:
So, if your organization does not mandate a particular kit type, consider our Maximum Velocity Car Kits.
- Quality Block - Unlike the blocks provided by some organizations, our blocks are soft, northwestern pine blocks, cut precisely to 7 inches long, 1-3/4 inches wide, and 1-1/4 inches tall. These dimensions, as well as the axle slots accurately duplicate the dimensions of the BSA block.
- Simple Axle Preparation - Don't worry about filing off flaws, or losing hub caps. Our axles have no burr or crimp marks, and install without hub caps. Just a little polishing and they are ready to go. We supply five, so you have a spare.
- Quality Wheels - Forget cheap, out of round wheels. We supply top-quality, PineCar-brand wheels to give great performance.
