Rocketcar Day. The Greatest Day On Earth!

So Rocketcar Day 12 - High Doom is upon us. This Sunday the 11th of April.

The Little Lovers Fully and Unofficially endorse the amazing day that is Rocketcar Day. If you don't know much about Rocketcar Day let me fill you in. Think of all the most awesome things in the world; Plastic Dinosaurs, Toy Robots, Mutated Barbie/Monster Truck Monster, a Giant M&M filled with smaller M&Ms and for the healthier type a Carrot. Then attach some wheels (only if you feel like it, the giant M&M had no wheels) then the all important rocket. Get some rowdy kids to push the ignite handle, like some ACME Looney Tunes device and watch the rockets shoot themselves down the street or straight into the shins of the raucous masses cheering and hoop-la-ing with beer and BBQ sausage in hand in the back streets of Marrickville. Add to this the hilarious commentary to long haired Rocketcar enthusiast on the back with a megaphone on the back of a flatbed truck and you might have a 1/4 of the awesomeness in your head.

Facebook event here:
Sydney Steel Rd Marrickville
11/04/10 Sun 1pm Ignition time.

Hopefully I have enough time to build my winning entry this year.

Challengers, ready!

Prototype catapult design self destructs in a flurry of Awesomeness

And the fabled Giant M&M full off m&m's. Note the lack of wheels. It exploded on the road and kids raced onto the track to scavenge and devour the m&m's with the slight taste of gunpowder and gravel. Still slightly warm.
