About this project

The Golden Sub

The original Golden Sub was debuted in 1917, it required almost twelve months to complete, and would cost $15,000. The car looked like a little egg, but was like nothing else on the track. With the original car the body was cut off due to the heat inside being the exhaust ran through the inside of the car. The car was then lost in a fire in the Joliet, IL area. This car has so much amazing racing history, anyone wanting some wonderful racing and engineering stories read about Harry Miller.
