    This handle is done in a more traditional Derby style but I've added some heft to give a more comfortable grip.

  8. Pinewood Derby cars with son

    Tiger Cub year-Gravedigger theme Wolf Cub year-sports car theme. (I think it looks a lot like a 74 Pantera). This year he wants to be a speed winner instead of a design winner, so we'll probably be doing something more basic.
