Last month, I posted some photos of Steve Lodefink's unfinished pinewood racer bodies. Today, he sent me photos of one of the finished racers. I love the sparkle paint job.
Steve and I have started talking about holding an all ages pinewood derby race at Maker Faire. Why should Cub Scouts (or, more likely, their dads) have all the fun?
