This year's Adult Pinewood Derby had a Superheros & Supervillians theme.  I had decided that my fantasy super power would be being able to make it 5 o'clock pm anywhere.  I was Major Margarita, The Happy Hour Heroine.  My first car literally crumbled in the building process and at the last minute I had to start from scratch with a different idea altogether.  Thus I present Quittin' Time, the Bar Cart Pinewood Derby Car - coming to an awful workplace parking lot near you!





Lots of detail shots:

She raced w/o her cocktail parasol awnings, which is how she raced.


A look inside where Happy Hour begins:


The signage, note it's ALWAYS 5 o'clock at Quittin Time


Posted hours of operation:


My cars generally come in the slowest 2 or 3 and I embrace that.


The obligatory shot of my assistant, Betty, helping with the photoshoot.

Amazing.  Your posts make me really want to get this started where I live.  I love your details, and that it has its own little world to reside in.

Thanks!  It is soooo much fun!  I've heard that in many places the Cub Scout organization (BSA) will rent out their track.  This year we followed the original Cub Scout rules for weight and propulsion, but in other years we've not which is also fun.
