1930s miniature racecars


Collectable Racecar Models

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

Powered by model airplane engines, spin dizzies raced against the clock. Incredibly detailed and aerodynamic, these miniature racecars were beyond toys; they were pieces of art representative of the best pioneering technology of the era. Constructed using original blueprints our Bantam Midget model resembles the original down to the smallest detail. One look and you'll be ready to join the competition..

cars or spin dizzies


Technically skilled enthusiasts of the 1930s loved to race the legendary BB Korn cars around the club tracks. Called tether cars or spin dizzies, they reached incredible speeds, and inspired thousands to improve and invent.

The founder of the BB Korn Manufacturing Company, Barney Korn, produced several tether car models that now, as vintage antiques, achieve astounding sums at auction.

Indy racer


Our aluminum Indy racer is an authentic replica of a 1930s child's toy. Its original makers were the famous Dooling Brothers, who manufactured around 1000 units at the time.

They were offered to aficionados of the famous Dooling spindizzies, miniature motorized racecars that reached dizzying speeds. They were closely modeled on the famous Mercedes Silver Arrows of the early 1930s. Originals are now rare and highly prized by collectors.

Molded with the same exacting detail as its original, our 12.2" Indy racer is hand-cast in airplane aluminum. Hand polished and buffed to a high shine, it features a detailed dashboard, faux leather seat, steering wheel and brake. In keeping with its original model-toy character, the front wheels are not linked to the steering wheel. The wheel hubs and rubber tires are made with the same exact detail as the original.

Enjoy a truly unique piece of Grand Prix history. This shiny, sleek desktop racer represents both the romance and the dramatic beauty of the most famous Grand Prix racers ever!
