After the end of the 1964-1965 New York World’s Fair, many of the displays that captured the attention of hordes of visitors either were destroyed or left behind to burn or weather away under the elements. A handful still exist, most notably the giant U.S. Royal tire-shaped ferris wheel, as well as perhaps one of the most significant GM displays from the fair, a cutaway 427-cu.in. Mark IV big-block V-8 that will head to auction next month in the city in which it debuted.
What a real shame this is, the Biscayne was the owners first car and the condition showed the amount of work he’d had lovingly put into the car. Not only was the Hellcat driver drunk, but I’m pretty sure it will be the tip of the iceberg in terms of too much car and not enough driving ability around the latest generation of muscle cars…
Got to feel bad for the owner of the Biscayne, as you can imagine the insurance probably won’t pay out.
On the upside the Hellcat may be crushed!

Took a drive over to Hartley Wintney for the New Years Day meet at the Phoenix Inn, pretty well attended considering the weather wasn’t great. A good smattering of American cars, along with coffee and some decent grub was on offer!
Some nice vehicles included:
Hudson Super Six
Chrysler New Yorker
Model A Coupe & Roadster
Plus a really cool Mercedes Hot Rod, not my normal thing, but very nice..
