  1. Official Vehicles of the World's Fair

    Well, the day finally came! Cushie made the pilgrimage back to his home in flushing and even skipped around the Unisphere!
  2. NYWF 50th Anniversary

    Does anyone know anbody that could help me get this off the ground? Besides my Cushman and Mike's Escorter, I don't know where any of these other vehicle are located. Also, anyone know who I would contact in Flushing to get permission for such an event?
  3. NYWF 50th Anniversary

    Does anyone know if anything is being planned in Flushing Meadows park? I am restoring a vehicle that was used at the Fair and would like to return it "home" for a ride.
  4. Thanks Randy. I've seen these stickers and they're pretty tough and durable. They're not water decals. I have some old Mr. Zip USPS stickers from 1963 and I've just used them on another project. These WF stickers were made for exterior usage. When I removed the old ones from my vehicle I got a good look at the composition. But you're probably right. Making new ones would probably be the least aggravation.
  5. Thanks Mike. I've done that. I work in advertising and many of my friends are designers and we've nailed those suckers down even to the exact original typeface. Still, I want the vehicle to be as close to the original as possible. I get caught up in these projects and I become kind of a perfectionist. But thanks for your suggestion. :D
  6. The whole thing is apart right now. My mechanic is going trhough the drive train. Engine is in great shape, we just rebuilt the carburetor, new brakes and cylinders on all three wheels, new master cylinder, e-brake cable. All body metal has been sandblasted and primed. Fibeglass parts sanded and ready to go. I purchased a replacement windshield. Only things I can't seem to find yet are the original stickers which I believe Mr Bagels has.
  7. You've got it the wrong way around!
  8. Hello again friends. I am restoring a vintage Cushman Truckster. One of the many 3 wheeled vehicles that were used at the Fair. I am looking for the original stickers that went on these vehicles. They were also used on the trash cans. They measure approx 8" by 8". If anyone has any of these stickers and would like to sell them or if they could point me in the right direction, I would be most appreciative. My goal is to bring the restored truckster back to Flushing next Spring to visit its original home. Thanks! Pat
  9. Greyhound Escorter Finished

    Beautiful! I saw the episode last night! I'm in the process of restoring a Cushman Truckster (3 wheeled vehicle) that was used at the fair. Are you planning on bringing your Escorter to Flushing to the Fair Grounds?
  10. Hi: Are they like the sticker that I posted above?
  11. Hi: Hello everyone. I'm new to this site. My name is Pat and although I was only 5/6 when I attended the Fair, it is one of the happiest memories of my childhood. Recently, I purchased an old Cushman Cart/scooter that was used to cart things around at the Fair. It is in need of a total restoration. It still has the original Unisphere stickers on it, but they are cracked and faded. I was wondering if anyone had a sticker or knows of how I could obtain one. They seem to be the same stickers thatr were used on the trash cans. Attached is a photo of what I'm looking for.
  12. Would you take $30? Could you telll me dimensions? Do you have two?

    I picked up this Cushman Truckster over the weekend. Now I have to restore it. How the heck am I going to do that?
