Pinewood Pequod

My son's Pinewood Derby entry. It was a last minute creation, as his first car he made with his dad wasn't made from a kit, and we found out this week he'd be disqualified if he didn't make it from a kit. Live and learn.

For the record, I'm aware 1) that Ahab wasn't really a pirate, in strict terms, and 2) that he hunted a white sperm whale. But my son was quite insistent that he wanted a baleen whale, and more specifically a blue whale. So there you have it. We took artistic/poetic license.

So we made this car with a hacksaw and a dremel. Lots of fun, folks. Lots of fun. If you want to see it from another angle, here's the flickr link.
