Cut and sand the wood to engineer a fast and aerodynamic car, then paint or design the car with any color scheme you like. Even decals can be applied to the wood for a personalized design. Keep the creativity flowing with decorative additions, but try to keep a streamlined appearance. Wind still needs to flow unimpeded across the surface. Doesn’t this iPod inspired derby car look cool?
