Ryan’s wonderful dialogue starter about plastics in early sizzling rods, customs and race vehicles, and that reminded me of one particular of the early pioneers of bubble best plastic domes on customs, Invoice Cushenbery. His really to start with scratch-built development was the legendary ‘Silhouette’ which went on to be a several-present winner, a Scorching Wheel, and an AMT product package. Invoice built it as a entirely driveable, roadworthy creation, and which is why it was highlighted in this CBS Tv Exclusive from September of 1966 named ‘The Great Entire world of Wheels”, with Lloyd Bridges as your host. The complete film is actually well worth a look at for the 60s go-karts, slot cars and trucks, dune buggies, exhibit cars, and a lot more. Lloyd drives the Silhouette through the opening sequence alongside the Pacific Coastline Highway and at moments all through the demonstrate. Whilst this movie has been shared on the HAMB before, I considered it was truly worth sharing yet again, and highlighting the personalized auto & scorching rod times for you:
