So, my uncle always collected interesting stuff. This is a car that came from his collection but which I didn’t really know much about. This is what is called a teather car. These model cars were fitted with gas-powered engines and a cable to teather them to a post and ran around a track at as much as 200mph!
This one is a Ray Cox THIMBLE DROME Champion model in white and red with the number 12 on the body. I’m not sure of the vintage here but I believe these were made mainly in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s. The one I have does not have the engine in it but is great as a conversation piece for display.
