An expensive custom-made race car built in 1917 by Harry Miller that would help change the shape of things to come in American auto racing. The Golden Submarine carried an unimaginable ticket price of $15,000 at its completion. Its gold color was the result of a combination of lacquer and bronze dust. The Golden Submarine never won the Indy 500, though it ran in 1919, pulling out with engine trouble; but its designs foreshadowed the future of American racing. Miller's design would dominate Indy for over 30 years

The Mazcort belongs to Trevor, and the car is in Joburg at the moment. He says it is not for sale, but I will see if I can twist his arm.
