On May 20, 1927 Charles Lindbergh barreled down thedirt runway at Roosevelt Field, Long Island, NY.His Spirit of St. Louis airplane would carry him 3,500 miles to Paris, where he became the first to make the trans-atlantic between New York and Paris. Lindbergh became an instant hero.New York City gave him the largest ticker tape parade ever andthe president awarded him the Distinguished Flying Cross.
Lindbergh'sfeat electrified the nation and inspired enthusiastic interest in aviation. Model airplanes and cars quickly became a hobby for many in the US, and in the1930's many hobbyists starting adapting their model airplane enginesfor use in model cars.The 30'ssaw the rise of hand built model racecars, known as spindizzies or tether cars - these were the boys' toys of the 1930's.Surprisingly sophisticatedracecars in 1:8scalebuilt 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, tethered by cables to a central pole. Powered by model airplane engines, spindizzies raced against the clock.
