Re: Car build jigs and supplies for sale

I don't understand what you have exactly. Can you send some pictures? If you can't send pictures to derby talk, perhaps you can email them directly to me.
Thank you.

Re: SWEETEST DAY

Many, many, many years ago I forgot to get my VERY special one a gift for Sweetest Day. I thought perhaps I could help someone else by reminding them of this very special day. I'd like to add something even though it's too late at this point. If your very special one is a member of "Weight Watchers"...

PINEWOOD DERBY 500

Here's a race that is limited to 500 cars. Everyone is welcome. Lube is limited to graphite. Parts must be BSA so I would guess you can use 1 gram wheels if you choose. Cars will not be returned. Hopefully an aluminum track is used. I'm going to guess this is going to be a very competitive race. Som...
