More of our Derby Car collection. The 1st one, my Dad and I put together for Cub Scouts… I was bout 10 yrs old. So…. 1969! It’s a little rough looking now… Did have side pipes… Windshield, Steering Wheel etc… but after 45 years of being played with by many a little one… It’s still look’n good :)

Cool. I remember MY first pinewood derby car. Dad wasn’t into helping my brother and I with things like this so I was on my own. It ended up being a rectangular block of wood that I glued some chrome pieces left over from my model car building. It was ugly as sin, but I did take 3rd place out of about 60 boys !
