Air Flow “Defender” Gas-Powered Racing Tether Car, 1940

Tether cars, gas-powered model race cars, were popular in the 1930s and 1940s. They were raced individually while tethered to a central pivot, or against each other on a scaled-down board track. New York-based Airflow Industries advertised its "Defender" cars as the only ones "aerodynamically streamlined and wind-tunnel tested." This design process, the company boasted, was the secret to greater speed. Source The Henry Ford
