San Francisco Artist's Soap Box Derby

The Incredible San Francisco Artists' Soapbox Derby, 1975. from Mike Haeg on Vimeo.

From our favorite mayor of Mt. Holly:

I stumbled across and purchased an actual print of this film back in SF while working on a project for the SF MOMA. Amanda Pope did a great job capturing the spirit of creativity and the event itself. I wonder where all of these cars are today?
The soapbox cars are remarkably refined and the crowd is huge!
