The Wonderful World of Wheels (1966)

Ryan’s nice dialogue starter about plastics in early scorching rods, customs and race vehicles, and that jogged my memory of one of the most early pioneers of bubble best plastic domes on customs, Invoice Cushenbery. His first actual scratch-built introduction was once the enduring ‘Silhouette’ which went directly to be a multiple-show winner, a Scorching Wheel, and an AMT type package. Invoice constructed it as an absolutely driveable, roadworthy introduction, and that’s why it was once featured on this CBS TV Particular from September of 1966 referred to as ‘The Superb Global of Wheels”, with Lloyd Bridges as your host. The entire movie is in reality value a look ahead to the 60s go-karts, slot vehicles, dune buggies, demonstrate vehicles, and extra. Lloyd drives the Silhouette all the way through the hole collection alongside the Pacific Coast Freeway and at moments right through the demonstrate.
