Pinewood Derby Car Showcase – April 20, 2018

All Revved Up: Ryan Newman

I made this car for a scout competition in 2000. It was just the plain wedge design. This year I found a blower from a 1957 Chevy “Muscle Machines” model car. I put that on the back, got some accessories from the local hobby shop, a front bumper off of an old toy truck, and finished the car. This car was made for ‘Best of Show’ only; it is too low to run on a regulation track.)

Bill Elliott’s #94: J. Gravely

This is a picture of Bill Elliott’s championship Ford Thunderbird. My son Kyle posted 1st Place in our pack last year with this car. The car is from a BSA kit, and meets all of our rules for height, weight, width, etc. The design was copied from a model car. The ‘mirror image’ is the top of the box in which the model car was packaged.

Google Eyes: Todd Hoyle

My son Dalton wanted a car that looked like a snake, and this is what we came up with. The paint scheme was Champagne Gold over Silver, with a Candy Green top coat. It went from “awesome” to cute in about two seconds with the attachment of “Google” eyes! All the kids said it looked like Randall from “Monsters, Inc.”
