Topps World on Wheels: Effyh

Topps World on Wheels Effyh card
Looking back into the Topps World on Wheels trading cards. This time, Effyh.

From the card’s reverse:
Horsepower 40
Cylinders 1
Speed 130mph

This Swedish midget racer appeared in America the first time in 1951, taking part in races at Bridgehampton, Long Island. At that time, it had defeated some of Europe’s most powerful cars in open competition. These tiny cars can go surprisingly fast… faster than many cars with greater horsepower.

A ringing endorsement if ever I’ve heard one.

Previously on Effyh. Previously on the 1951 Bridgehampton.
