Holy Cow Whoda. My kids and wife are going Gaga over it.
(So did the kids when I raced it !)

When I told them the engine was pine too I think one of them fainted.
( Are you kidding me ?)
I would have been the one who would have Fainted if I could of pulled of making all the internal motor parts.
However lots of little details went into making it look like a big block motor.

You have set the bar really high. But now I’ve see proof that it can be achieved.

mclewis_13 you can do anything when you set your mind to it!

(Just trying to pass a little more Inspiration you're way and best of luck with the rest of your build !)

I love the look and texture of the car body. Nice work.

I did an aged wood look on a car a couple years ago. I called it Barn Find. I later found out the wood actually came from an old barn.

What are your plans for next build?

And, if you get a chance check out http://www.TheWestCoastGrandPrix.com Pretty sure either with a wheel swap and/or a new build you would enjoy building and showing at the 70th Anniversary of Pinewood Derby Celebration at the West Coast Grand Prix.

Date to be determined. Would like to do on actual anniversary, but May 15 falls on a Mon. It will be between March and May 15th. I have to find an available Sat that athletics or other department is not using the gym.

Did you look at the website?
Are you considering racing?

I did, and didn't discover any date information. A quote on the About page in the past tense implied that this year's event had already past: "In 2022 the West Coast Grand Prix went international. There were entries from Spain." Also, the expired countdown timer on the Home page with the words "70th Anniversary of ​Pinewood Derby Celebration" made me wonder if it might have already past...

But based on your response, I will now assume the 70th Anniversary event is not until 2023.

That is correct. I have been working on updates. School starts next week. I start back tomorrow. Hope to have date soon. Then countdown date and new countdown will be posted.

Plan on somewhere between March 4 and May 13, 2023. What class or classes look most interesting to you?
