Bantam Midget

 422,00

Surprisingly sophisticated racecars 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 mph…Imagine a corner of the 1939 New York World’s Fair. A throng of thousands massing around a mini car-drome where racecars are being prepared for a major race. The scream of the engines fills the air. A mini NASCAR, Le Mans, Nuburgring…An American pastime; technology, cars, excitement! Spindizzies, named for the dizzying speeds they reached, were inspired by full size racecars. Handcrafted, large-scale miniatures were made by skilled owners, who often spent hundreds of hours on each car. They were true pieces of combined art and contemporary technology.
