The Ghost of Dragstrip Hollow (1959) - Teddy Bear Racecars

This campy 50s-era story is much more about teens and cars than about ghosts or spookiness. In fact, it's like a beach party movie, substituting asphalt for the sand. Outpost Zeta writes, "The Ghost of Dragstrip Hollow is a precursor to the beach movies of the 1960s, in that it features weightless comedy performed by teen actors, and plenty of musical interludes. For a movie that barely clocks in at over an hour, it takes a good forty minutes to get to the haunted house," however, with the first half of the movie being more or less a kind of car porn for wholesome teens.

Anyway. You need a racecar snack? You got it. Kristol, at The Magic of Ordinary Things, has it covered. These are pretty stinkin' cute. You just need mini-Milky Way bars - which are vegetarian but not vegan, using egg whites in the recipe Teddy Grahams, and M&Ms, and maybe a few chocolate chips to melt and use as glue.
