The Pinewood Derby

Tonight is the official weigh-in for the Pinewood Derby that my boys are racing in this Saturday. The cars are finished. All they need is a little graphite to make those wheels spin. Pigpen’s car is slim and tiny, with a blue base coat with multi color flames. It also has a shitload of lead embedded into the front to make it nice and heavy. The best part is a kickass spoiler on the back that apparently is destined to make his car NOT aerodynamic, but oh well. It looks cool.

Einstein has a shiny black racecar with red and white stripes and a huge question mark on the top. I asked him what the question mark was all about and he said “It’s the mystery mobile.” I told him it couldn’t be the Mystery Mobile. That idea was already taken by the Scooby Doo gang. His car has a really funny shape to it too, but the men in the family say that it’s design gives it potential for serious speed. Not bad for a 6 year old and an 8 year old, eh?

    You can fit a lot more drugs in the Mystery Machine (oh, that crazy Scooby Doo gang and their psychadellic van).

    Kick-ass cars. What a great event for kids to participate in.
