1978 And 1981 Pinewood Derby Cars

1978 And 1981 Pinewood Derby Cars

Posted to Flickr on 28 February 2009. Part of the JD's House of Miscellany series.

As a Cub Scout, I participated in the Pinewood Derby races. My dad helped me build two different cars. The first was our "learning" car; we learned that you should weigh down the car as much as the rules allowed. The second car was carefully weighted. I won second place with that car, as documented in the Polaroid photo.

This is one of many curious items collected in JD’s House of Miscellany.

This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.
