Hornet Race Car


The 1930’s saw the rise of hand built model racecars, known as spindizzies or tether cars.  Miniature race cars built by hobbyists zoomed around banked wooden tracks at speeds approaching 150 miles per hour.  Resembling the full-size racers of their day, several spindizzies competed at once all tethered by cables to a central pole.
