I must say, he did not come up with this idea.back in the late 60's and early 70's they had this every year at the top of Broad st for kids.. did anyone research that out?Give credit where credit is due.It was as soap box derby and it had to be made with wood, cardboard etc.. it was for kids and I think the Boys Scouts helped put it on.Check it out.
