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!
