Demo Derby 2008

Last Sunday Chris Wilhelm, my daughter's fiancee, once again drove in the Demolition Derby at the Clallam County Fair. He came in 2nd this year. I believe the pictures below tell the story much better than I ever could.
In the beginning was the car...And it was very good...

It entered the First Heat of the derby in this condition. And it was still very good.

But the vehicle left that heat in the following condition. That's my son Colin leaning on the car. Chris and David (husband) are checking to see what needs fixing before the final heat.

It then entered the Final Heat and after gallantly carrying out what it was created to do it left in this condition. A fine lesson in how to make your own compact car.
And here is the proud creator and driver in excellent condition (i.e. still in one piece) holding his trophies. And he was very good indeed.

Good Job Christopher!
Amen.
