Malaise Era Artisto-Hoons Go Gravity-Powered In 1975 Artists' Soapbox Derby

The Illegal Soapbox Derby in San Francisco was fun, but what if the city had actually sponsored the cars? Well, that's just what happened 35 years ago!


This very-much-of-its-time documentary film sort of drags in parts, but it's worth hanging in there to check out the cars. A giant pencil! A dome covered with pennies! Thanks to BoingBoing for hipping us to this gem.
