372 Primary education (Queensland Dept. of Education)

My friend d. sent me a link bac in January to his son’s entry in the vegetable car derby at Grace Episcopal Day School, in the D.C. suburbs. Here’s d.’s description of the car:

Kenneth’s car tied with or had the longest run of any car. The video clip shows the second and shorter run. Kenneth’s design is reminiscent of the classic race cars from the 1940s and 1950s. Note the sleek lines of the butternut squash body. The vegetables, of course, are from Whole Foods and are organic and free range. The wheels are constructed from turnips, and note the small tomatoes for the headlights and the driver. The final touch is a carrot for the exhaust pipe.

The song Dodge Vegematic made #472 on one radio station’s list of the top 500 songs of all time.
