Soapbox Derby



Today's picture shows a line up of soapbox derby racers. They are lined up in a column, so I wonder if they coast down the hill one at a time, and compete on time. The other possibility would be several racing side by side at a time.

  1. You can bet that if this race was taking place today, the kids would have wear helmets and all kinds of safety gear. And maybe even have a fire extinguisher or board (LOL)

  2. Here's an episode of My Three Sons about a soap box derby - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VqXLJcfq5o. There's also an episode of Bewitched (season 5 I think) that has one.

  3. None of this would have been possible without baby carriages, which is where the wheels and axles usually came from. The hard part was figuring out how to steer the things.
