The Wonderful World of Wheels (1966)

Ryan’s good discussion starter about plastics in early scorching rods, customs and race cars, and that reminded me of 1 of the early pioneers of bubble best plastic domes on customs, Invoice Cushenbery. His extremely first scratch-constructed development was the iconic ‘Silhouette’ which went on to be a several-exhibit winner, a Scorching Wheel, and an AMT product package. Monthly bill constructed it as a completely driveable, roadworthy creation, and that is why it was showcased in this CBS Television Distinctive from September of 1966 termed ‘The Superb Entire world of Wheels”, with Lloyd Bridges as your host. The complete film is really worth a check out for the 60s go-karts, slot cars and trucks, dune buggies, display vehicles, and far more. Lloyd drives the Silhouette throughout the opening sequence together the Pacific Coastline Freeway and at times in the course of the show. Though this online video has been shared on the HAMB just before, I imagined it was really worth sharing once again, and highlighting the tailor made car or truck & very hot rod moments for you:
