The X-wing Fighter Boxcar created for the Nazareth Adult Soapbox Derby gives the competitive sport of boxcar racing a pop-culture twist: the car is based on the fighter from the Star Wars series. Regardless of your relationship to the movie, the boxcar is an undeniably cool contraption.

The X-wing Fighter Boxcar was even created with and R2D2 robot at the very back, just like in the movie. The boxcar is cool because it goes beyond what is normally expected at a derby and it displays the creators' unparalleled adoration of the cinematic series.

The X-wing Fighter Boxcar is a remarkable creation for tearing up the road and impressing the judges. It's a shame that it can only be used during races.
