The Wonderful World of Wheels (1966)

Ryan’s good discussion starter about plastics in early warm rods, customs and race automobiles, and that reminded me of 1 of the early pioneers of bubble major plastic domes on customs, Monthly bill Cushenbery. His pretty initial scratch-designed generation was the legendary ‘Silhouette’ which went on to be a various-demonstrate winner, a Hot Wheel, and an AMT design kit. Monthly bill created it as a completely driveable, roadworthy generation, and that’s why it was featured in this CBS Television set Specific from September of 1966 called ‘The Fantastic Environment of Wheels”, with Lloyd Bridges as your host. The entire movie is definitely well worth a observe for the 60s go-karts, slot cars, dune buggies, demonstrate automobiles, and extra. Lloyd drives the Silhouette during the opening sequence alongside the Pacific Coastline Freeway and at moments throughout the demonstrate.
