The 1930’s saw the rise of hand built model race-cars, known as Spin-dizzies 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 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 race-cars were beyond toys; they were pieces of art representative of the best pioneering technology of the era.
