Golden Submarine

The Golden Submarine

10/19/2009

Built in 1917, the Golden Submarine was one of the first complete cars constructed by the great Harry Miller, who built several Indianapolis 500 race winners in the 1920's and 1930's. The idea of the car came from Barney Oldfield, who was more safety conscious than is typically recognized by his biographers - probably the main reason he survived the deadly era that contained his career. Oldfield's idea was essentially the same as the roll bar/cage.
