BB Korn Indianapolis Scale Model Racer
Spindizzies, also known as tether cars, were the boysâ€™ toys of the 1930s.
Surprisingly sophisticated race cars in 1:8 scale raced tethered to a pole or to a chain track in a banked wooden racetrack, reaching speeds in excess of 150 mphâ€¦ Imagine a corner of the 1939 New York Worldâ€™s Fair. A throng of thousands massing around a mini car drome where race cars are being prepared for a major race. The scream of the engines fills the air. A mini NASCAR, Le Mans, NÃ¼rbÃ¼rgringâ€¦ An American pastime; technology, cars, excitement!
