2015 Pinewood Derby Switchblade Car: I cannibalized parts from a cheap knife, belt clip, BSA Pinewood Derby car wood & wheel kit, brass shimstock, assorted screws, and some brass tacks to make this year’s car. I wanted something that would meet the official racing spec, look like a real knife without being dangerous, and make the boys jealous. Cars from other Scout Leaders are in that last picture. Many of them utterly violated the weight rules (leaders get to cheat in our Pack). My goals were partially met. Unfortunately, my wife’s Wookie Car was far more popular than mine. We don’t talk about it.
