Phil Hill Ferrari 156 Tribute- Pinewood Derby Style

So in remembrance of the late, great Phil Hill. I decided to carve a Cub Scout Pinewood Derby car in his honor with my son. These are taken with the "model" for reference. Here are some pic's from beginning to end. Enjoy!

Very cool idea! Nice execution as well. Man, that brings me back to when I was still a scout.

That looks like it was a fun project. I used to enjoy making those derby cars when I was younger.

DerekC is infamous around these parts
very nice! Phil Hill used to live right next door to me in Santa Monica would always bring us down to his car garage to check out vintage cars. 3 car garage with basement underneath to fit around 10 more cars I believe. always seeing him cleaning them during the weekends and would take some of them out for a drive

Looks awesome. Great job. It brings back memories of the pinewood derby. I actually won it 2 years in a row.

Had the race yesterday. Unfortunately it was "all show, no go". However, it got many compliments.

Nice replica, I'm sure it would have been nice to win, but the fun is in the making of the car and the pride you have for making such a historic car.

Here is my son's pinewood derby version of a 1963 Ferrari 158 roughly copied from a *** Slot car:



He was a tiger (1st grader) that year so his contribution was confined to spray painting and decals.
