    Subaru and its Wooden derby car commercial

    It was a fantastic commercial to see the kid holding his pine derby car in the wood vise at his fathers work table, and then winning with his simple yet efficient design.
    I guess its a woodworking thing.

    Saw it last night. I really liked it.

    Reminded me of the pine wood derby cars when I was a kid. It was always easy to tell which ones the dads made and which ones the kids made.

    In our troop, one of the kids dads owned an auto body shop. Wasn't a surprise that it had a flawless finish and was one of the fastest cars

    Allen,
    I've been watching TV ads for the last few days and haven't seen this one yet. I was hoping to get all warm and fuzzy, but no luck yet. I'll keep my eye out - as will Sam.

    PS We started making one of the van models - I think it's going to be a long process. Thanks again!
