Default Cub Scouts/Pinewood Derby Cars

I am the proud mom of an 8 yr old Wolf Cub Scout. My other 2 boys will follow suit when they are old enough. We just finished with our Pine Wood Derby cars and the big race day is coming up.

I must say, I was quite appalled to see that people actually BUY pre-made derby cars on Ebay for upwards of $75.00. I wonder what those parents are teaching their boys? That money can buy happiness and wins? Geesh, that is the fun of the event(making your OWN car). Oh well, better those parents than me! I know it will be a cold day in ....Nebraska .... when we'd ever pay for someone else's work.

Has anyone else experienced this?
