G’Day Louis, That’s a fine car you & your son have made there.
I’m still trying to find out about the Pinewood Derby events….
From my knowledgeable we haven’t really got it in Australia.
Anyways, great toys.
Cheers, crowie

Nice ride ya got there. I think it would be fun to do an adult version of pinewood derby, it always seems the adults have just as much fun as the kids doing these cars.
