Here is the Formula 5000 Hot Wheels Car and Pinewood Derby Car I made for the Nevada Day Pinewood Derby . I had this car when I was a kid and found this one in a thrift store. The motor dose not match the Hot Wheels car but it was close.Added Redline wheels to make it look better.

Thanks, I had fun making this one.The hardest part was getting the weight in the plastic motor with out damaging it.

G’Day Louis, You’ve done a super job on the open wheeler, ready to race.
Do you have any info on the Pinewood Derby events and seem to be only getting bits & pieces on the net….
From my knowledgeable we haven’t really got it in Australia.
Anyways, great toys.
Cheers, crowie
