The Wonderful World of Wheels (1966)

Ryan’s good dialogue starter about plastics in early very hot rods, customs and race cars and trucks, and that reminded me of a person of the early pioneers of bubble best plastic domes on customs, Monthly bill Cushenbery. His really very first scratch-crafted generation was the iconic ‘Silhouette’ which went on to be a multiple-show winner, a Incredibly hot Wheel, and an AMT design package. Bill developed it as a fully driveable, roadworthy development, and that’s why it was highlighted in this CBS Television Unique from September of 1966 known as ‘The Fantastic Earth of Wheels”, with Lloyd Bridges as your host. The full movie is definitely truly worth a check out for the 60s go-karts, slot vehicles, dune buggies, clearly show autos, and a lot more. Lloyd drives the Silhouette for the duration of the opening sequence along the Pacific Coastline Freeway and at moments throughout the display. Even though this video has been shared on the HAMB prior to, I thought it was worthy of sharing once more, and highlighting the tailor made auto & incredibly hot rod moments for you:
