A Movie Made With Models

In the summer of 1971, 15-year old Steve Mirabelli and his friend combined their collections of scratch built NASCAR models – and made a movie.

“I built a 1/2 mile speedway set in my basement” Mirabelli wrote.

“I filmed the piece with an old Brownie 8mm home movie camera exposing one frame at a time moving the cars between frames. This short film took 2 months to complete.”

Now that’s dedication!
