I remember the days of being a single mom and trying to help my boys build their cars for scouts! Great pics Dan!

Some good lookin' cars, one kind of looks like a pick-up truck. I remember doing this with my dad and again with my son in Cub Scouts, good fun.

I was a cub scout den leader for one year. I made them call me Akela. They were wild animals who peed out of the window of my son's treehouse. The worst one was the son of a Texas State Trooper. The annual Scout Parade down Congress Ave. made it all worthwhile, but one year was plenty.

Mr Olsen thanks for the comment.These cars are different from the pinewood derby for scouts.The ones for scouts have nails to hold on the wheels.These have wooden dowel axles with screws.Make it a little more challenging..dan
