This my car for the Cub Scouts Pinewood Derby this year! Its name is Speedy the Turtle. It is supposed to be a Southern Painted Turtle. We picked that turtle because it has a cool orange stripe down the middle of its shell, and we think it looks like a racing stripe. My car number this year is 58.
The most fun part was going to the hobby store and picking out the paint colors. We used leather brown, dark green, flat black, cadmium yellow, and international orange. We used a paintbrush to paint the turtle car, instead of the spray paint that we used on last year’s flamingo car.
The race is this Friday. Wish me luck!
