Indianapolis, Red Seat Model Car


Indianapolis, Red Seat Model Car-The 1930s saw the rise of hand crafted model racecars, known as spindizzies or tether cars. Miniature racecars built by hobbyists raced around banked wooden tracks at speeds approaching 150 miles per hour. Resembling the full-size racers of their day, several spindizzies competed at once, tethered by cables to a central pole. Powered by model airplane engines, spindizzies raced against the clock. Incredibly detailed and aerodynamic, these miniature racecars were more than toys; they were pieces of art representative of the best pioneering technology of the era. Constructed from original blueprints this Bantam Midget model resembles the original down to the smallest detail.
