  8. BBQ Screening

    I went to the screening on Saturday and ran into a bunch of people. Needless to say the documentary was great. I had the chance to get some pictures you can see them at: <a href="http://www.pointnetworking.com/photos" target="_blank">http://www.pointnetworking.com/photos</a> They are at the bottom of the page.

  9. Last Sunday

    Mike, if you want a plate like the one on the car, the Queens Museum gift shop has an original for $38.
  10. Last Sunday

    The car is registered as a classic. The guy that owns it is the President of the Antique Car Owners of Queeens. So the plate is "legal". The way you know it is "legal" the red stripe on the the right of the plate and the sticker on the windshield. He can only put 2,500 miles a year on the car.
  11. Last Sunday

    He is a big time WFN. I talked to him for about an hour. He didn't know about PTU, so I told him and gave him the web address. He said he would be at the screening on the 26th. Maybe he'll bring the car. He lives right by the park. He had a mini-display of sorts on the back seat of the Chevy. He also told me he has a 1940 Chevy or Ford, I forget which and it's themed after the 39 Fair. I was in the park on Sunday with da' bench the Qeens Conservatory is looking into re-opening the nature trail around Willow Lake. So if you want to see more pictures of the car, the fountains and Willow Lake follow this link: <a href="http://www.pointnetworking.com/photos" target="_blank">http://www.pointnetworkig.com/photos</a> And no pop up banners or bandwith exceed messages this time.

  12. Last Sunday

    I found this car parked by the New York City Building. The car was themed after the fair. Here is a shot of the dashboard. The fountains were on as well. [This message has been edited by PhilR (edited 07-16-2003).]
  13. Underground Home

    If they didn't bust up the roof and demoltion costs were so high. To save money they just may have filled the empty space with landfill. Stuff like light poles, benches and parts of other pavilions.
  14. Road signs

    Mike, why pay $175 for an original sign when could buy a repro for $102. Who would know the difference. Check out this link: <a href="http://www.ci.nyc.ny.us/html/dot/html/signs/when.html" target="_blank">http://www.ci.nyc.ny.us/html/dot/html/signs/when.html</a>
  15. Excellent Shea Stadium article

    Some of the original seat parts were made right here in Brooklyn, New York not 10 miles from FMP. They were made at Taylor and Company an iron foundry located on the corner of Nassau and Morgan Ave. Most of the jobs they done were for other companies that did the assembly. How do I know this? My father worked there in 1963, he was there for 35 years before they closed, he was on piece work, was offered the job, he didn't take it because it didn't pay well, so he passed on it. The order was for what he called "seat brackets".
