USMC Demolition Derby Car
Sgt. Grit, attached are pictures of my sister, Rhonda’s, demolition derby car for the Medina County, Ohio 2004 Demo Derby. This was her first year, so she was “self-sponsored.” She created the stencils, we painted and decorated the car. Our inspiration? Our No. 1 favorite jarhead – Dad. Dad is a retired Master Sergeant – Vietnam Veteran. We are truly “Marine Corp brats” through and through.
While we were highly disappointed that her car was not chosen to be voted on by the crowd as a favorite (the “judges” chose, among others, this namby-pamby rainbow/clouds thing with butterflies, luckily it did NOT win) – it did win over the hearts of the Marine Corps League members that were there handling color guard. Guess who now has a sponsor for next year’s derby? Only one stipulation – she decorate her car in the same “Devil Dog” theme. GLADLY!!!!
Hope you and your readers enjoy the pics!!!
Oooooooorah!! Semper Fi!
