66 Ford Cobra Pine Car

Post by iacomputerguy »

My daughter (8) attends AWANA which is a kids club at our church.(Click here to learn more.) They have a Grand Prix, similar to the Scout's Pinewood Derby. Since I have a CNC router now, I thought I'd help her take her car up a notch. Between the use of Google SketchUp and Cut3D we were able to make an old Ford Cobra which was pretty close to scale with the real thing. I did have to squish it a bit in order to fit in the rules. She was very proud. (OK dad may have been a bit too involved this year. She did have lots of fun working together with me though.)

No sorry to me that's just cheating :shock:

Mind you it is pretty cool :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

My Dad was never very good at that sort of stuff, if we had been working on a project together to build something I would have had to take the lead lol

Funny you should post this. A co-worker asked if I'd rough cut his son's pine wood derby car, just this morning. He'd be surprised if I came back with a rough cut car and something like this.

Maybe the rules are changing. I just did my nephew's son a corvette. I didn't spend as much time so it wasn't as cool as this Cobra. Nice Job.
