Here are some cars my son and I built for Cub Scouts. You can see the progression from when he couldn’t do much of anything until he could build and paint a couple by himself. He won awards every year and in 2012 (his design and paint) he won everything. I did very little if anything on the last two cars.

To say anything other than “Great Job”,Way to Go” would be a mistake…..

very interesting, enjoyed seeing the cars, and a great accomplishment for your son, I need to make some cars for a reward for a couple of boys. Nice looking cars.

Brian—says you did well YOU DID!

My favorite is the street-rod! Still an old hot-rodder at heart. Used to really like the sleepers; looked only mediocre—-went like crazy.
