Sorry Ron, but I thought I'd start a more general thread for these. :)

Here's a pic of my son's "Yoda" car which will race in about an hour from now. I'll get more pictures up later on.

Sweet Stilla! I remember being in the scouts, and my dad took over designing my brother and my pinewood derby cars. He would add the weights, had a scale to weigh them so we wouldn't have to try to get the cars down to race weight the night of the event. I wish I had pictures of them, but my parents didn't photograph everything we did. This was of course pre Star Wars

That is one great looking car. He must be proud.

Yeah, he received a lot of compliments. He thought it up. I just helped with the power tools. :)

That's awesome Stilla! I'll post some more detailed close-ups of my son's when I get a chance...

Well, Yoda isn't going to be a racecar driver anytime soon :D , but we'll find out the results of the design competition next week.
