Whare did all these Indians come from.

Post by whodathunkit » Wed Aug 03, 2022 6:38 pm

Thought I'd give this topic a catchy title to share with you all some
YMCA Indian Guides Pinewood Derby Cars.


Image
This car type uses a C clip retainer to hold the wheels on and a 1/8'' solid rod axle type
That is just a touch larger in diameter.. to that of the pine car brand kits solid axle type.
Image
Image
There wheel types are clearish white and black in colors.
Image
These shark looking car's are 7 1/2" long and 2 3/4" wide with a 5 1/4'' wheel base. weight 6.0 ounce.
Image

Regular car types:

If you have never seen the YMCA Indian Guides Pinewood Derby Car type hope you have enjoyed the pics of a few.

Whoda.

What did they race those on?
Looks wider than a Street Rod or a Big Rig?

Eagle that's a good question! Must have been on a wood track with no center rail.. or a special built track with a wide center rail.

I have search most all the YMCA kit topics here on DT for the Chule car ..
Some say the chule car was the Royal Ranger wooden axle dowel kit: and Maximum Velocity even shares some info about it here:
https://www.maximum-velocity.com/royal- ... ood-derby/
Iv even read in some of the YMCA topics on DT.. that some say the Chule car could have been made from the indy products fastcar kit as well.
https://indyproducts-com.3dcartstores.c ... t_p_9.html
I have one of these fastcar kits and it is very close in size.

The YMCA adventure guides princesses cars.. they are using the Pinecar brand kits now or days.
Iv even seen YMCA videos where there using BSA kits .. it's because what ever the club has for tracks to race on the kit type they use so the car will fit the track.

Okay Eagle, what the Indy Product's Fast Car kit looks like to the chule.
Image
Kit block is 4.5 inch wide by 2 inches tall x 10 in long.. 1 3/4" wheels
Long axle for the front short for the back per the plans.
Image
There wheel base is longer and not as wide:
Image
The Chule car is just under 10 inches long.
Top view looking down:
Image
Side view angle.. there nose to nose
Image

Here's some links I discovered to To some vintage YMCA Indians guides car's that have sold at auctions check out there wheel and axle type:
Green Car Seen In back ground.. has sliver paint over the logos on the wheel.
https://www.invaluable.com/auction-lot/ ... 0d44193911
here the 2nd link:
https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/ ... -133927118
Both cars seen in the links use the same wheel style.

However check this out on the YMCA Indians Guides cars that I first posted images of There kit type:
