The Wonderful World of Wheels (1966)

Ryan’s fantastic dialogue starter about plastics in early hot rods, customs and race cars, and that reminded me of a single of the early pioneers of bubble major plastic domes on customs, Bill Cushenbery. His really first scratch-created creation was the iconic ‘Silhouette’ which went on to be a a number of-display winner, a Hot Wheel, and an AMT model package. Monthly bill crafted it as a absolutely driveable, roadworthy creation, and which is why it was highlighted in this CBS Tv Unique from September of 1966 referred to as ‘The Great Globe of Wheels”, with Lloyd Bridges as your host. The full movie is definitely value a view for the 60s go-karts, slot automobiles, dune buggies, clearly show cars, and additional. Lloyd drives the Silhouette in the course of the opening sequence alongside the Pacific Coastline Freeway and at moments all over the exhibit.
