Project Information

I have been helping my 10 year old son Cash build his first pinewood derby car.

He is really into WWII history and when we found a set of plans for this in Troy Thorne's book, Pinewood Derby Designs & Patterns, he said "We have to build that one!"

We started with a regular derby car kit.

The original didn't have plans for a machine gun but Cash insisted on a .30 cal Browning.

We have about 20 hours in this project.

Don't know if it will be the fastest, but I know it is the best looking!

Do they give awards for design? Looks like a 1st place for sure if they do.
My dad had a Willys Jeep when I was a kid. Loved the adventures we went on in it. Thanks for the memories. :)
