Pinewood Derby Car Designer

Just noticed over at the BSA National Council web site that they have a Pinewood Derby Car Designer online program:

Looks like you can choose from 15 different designs, color the car, and then print a template to make the car from.

I saw that HolyCross2009 had it in his 08-09 DRAFT of rulebook post

I have printed all of the plans for use in our PWD workshop. I think it would be a useful tool for the scouts to see a car they may want to build, in color, before they build it.

Here's a good collection of templates to have available at workshops.
