VINTAGE RACE CAR MODELS

Spindizzies, Tether Cars, Speed Toy Cars

Commonly called Tether Cars or Spindizzies, this Depression Era sport was huge! Some of these toy speed cars would reach speeds of over 100 mph.

The `1930's was a most interesting era. The 30s market crash made many people stay home and concentrate on hobbies. One of these was car racing for guys. Elaborate, scale-built track racers were home built and taken to a local racing track to compete. This was big! Authentic Models purchased selected originals priced astronomically at auction. These were then re-issued as a limited edition series of 30s racecars. These to-scale models include all the details... only the engines are non-working due to liability laws.
