Pine Wood Derby Mythology

I saw this car at the Pine Wood Derby District races.  For those that don't know, the Pine Wood Derby is a race of cars made out of a block of pine that has been carved, cut, weighted, and painted by cub scouts.  There are three categories: speed, beauty, and originality.  The one of Atlas above was an entry in the originality category.  Just a side note, in mythology Atlas holds the sky and was later turned into stone by Perseus basically for being a jerk earlier in his quest for Medusa's head.  I just was not expecting to see mythology today.

My youngest son was there for beauty.  Go Colby!
