Looks like fun! Lots of downhill curvy roads around here... Never found anyone else dumb enough to get geeked up and do adult soapbox around these parts though.

Very slick! All of our local soap box races have died. I know this is O/T but didn't Boyd's shop do a soap box hot rod on one of its episodes? I think it was a green sedan?

The person that did the wood work is a true master craftsman in every sense of the word.

The car is a work of art and I would hate to ask the question of how many hours did it take to complete such a work of art.

I tip my hat to a master craftsman.

Amazing work. Jimbo

Dunwoody, GA (in north Atlanta) is pushing hard to build a new soapbox national event track, cost not including land is over $1 million including concession stand and bleachers it has some strong backing and may actually happen, goes to show soapbox is not dead, it would be nice to see bunch of these going head to head like a "Legends" type class for those of us big guys and gals that cannot grow up.

Looks to be very nice!! My dad is a wood worker and this is something I can appreciate highly because of what he has taught me throughout the years. Maybe something I can try and tackle to build when I have my own kids. It would have to be a plymouth though.
