The Car

When we were first asked to participate in the Demolition Derby, we were stoked! We loved the idea of deconstructing and building a car. But then it dawned on us: Oh hell! Our car was going to get smashed up! We love cars, that’s why we’re part of a car club.  The idea of smashing up any vintage American steel kinda makes us cringe… but cancer makes us cringe even more. If we can help in some small way to raise funds, that’s what we want to do. And hey! Maybe we can even resurrect our car after the Derby!

Here she is: A 1968 Galaxie 500, our yet-to-be-named Demolition Car. Over the next few months, we’ll transform her from a junker into a beautiful star, one fit for MISS COMBUSTION and her GASOLINE GIRLS!

On Saturday (April 28th) the deconstruction begins. Several of the ladies will head up to Lancaster to remove windows and seats in prep for the build. Be sure to check back to read all about their weekend’s work.

We have until August to get her ready for the Derby… where she’ll get smashed up. :( Ouch. That’s hard to even type that. (…it’s for a good cause, it’s for a good cause, it’s for a good cause…)
