Hell’s Belles!

Yes folks, it’s that massively exciting time of year again when the Hell’s Belles all-girls classic car club is oh-so-proud to present the third annual Pinewood Derby! This is a fabulous all-ages event popular with speed-crazed kids and grownup gear-heads and track tarts, plus there is a terrific silent art auction featuring amazing hot-rod and tattoo-related work from a variety of all-star artists. 

Insane race fan and tricked out Derby wheels take to the tracks!

If you’re wondering just what the heck a Pinewood Derby is, you can check this out.  The short answer is, everyone carves a car out of a block of wood and they race against each other.  But as you can see from the pictures, it’s so very much more than that.  

If you need further inspiration, here’s some Derby cars from past races, some shots of the races themselves, and some pics of the auction.

All proceeds to go the Bay Area Women & Children’s Center of San Francisco. If you would like to donate artwork, please contact founders@hellsbellescarclub.com.  Don’t miss this — it wont happen again for another year!
