The $350 Pinewood Derby Car

I’d like to file this in the “Excess-Beyond-Excess Dept.”  The $350 Boat Tail Racer.

From the Auditorium Toy Co. website:

A masterpiece of aesthetic form and function inspired by the slippery lines of early 20th century low-drag coachwork — designs formulated by the science of aerodynamics, yet strikingly gorgeous

It’s not just a looker though – the Boattail Racer is handmade from materials that time cannot easily erode.

The wooden bodywork is sculpted from rugged 13 ply Baltic birch. The muscular stance comes courtesy of the 77.5 millimeter carnelian-core industrial grade wheels, which float effortlessly on precision bearings. Solid stainless steel axles and fasteners ensure faithful service for generations to come.

Your Boattail Racer arrives protected by a custom archive box handcrafted from black-core 4 ply acid-free museum board. Provenance included.

350 + s/h
