Bill Cushenbery Jr. told me the story of when the KHJ Surfin'Bird was being built, he was 10 years old and in the cub scouts. He was working on his Pinewood Derby car and his car was actually painted with the same paint as was used on the Surfin'Bird! Bill shared this image of his recently rediscovered car.
