  1. My son has some pretty cool derby cars from the past couple of years How does he get them up here

  2. the knot one is amazing! they must have whittled that. that would win judges pick for sure!!

  3. got to love the stapler!! 🙂

  4. I think any time a Cub Scout and his parent work together is valuable. Of course it’s better if a Cub does most of the work. I’m not going to disqualify a kid’s car because his dad helped too much. For some of these kids, the pinewood derby is one of the few events that the parents bother getting involved with.

  5. I made a Perry the platypus one, with a hat!

    These cars are too detailed to be from a cub scouts hands. Did they change the rules? When I was a kid, the kids were required to do most, I’d not ALL of the work on their cars. Cars like these would have been disqualified for too much adult participation. Why not let the adults have their own race, but let the kids built their own cars for crying out loud. Building and racing my car was a memorable experience. All these kids will remember is “look at the car my dad built for me”

  14. I would like one that the parents only helped 5% with.

  35. scary

  36. mine craft awesome but angry bird better than awesome

  37. These cars are amazing

  38. Troops in our area have begun doing “Outlaw” / “Parent” races so the parents can race against each other. This year, the winning parent car will race the winning scout car, too. It would be nice it see the cars get back to the kids doing the bulk of the project, not the parents. Although the above cars are awesome, I’m pretty sure kids didn’t make them! =)
