  1. Hello, I have automotive pieces (cars) from the GM Futurama ride in the 1939 World's Fair in New York. Uncle Eddie, a family friend who was on the crew that set up & dismantled the Futurama ride, wound up with a portion of the display. The following is a link to photographs of the unrestored cars in their original condition, http://www.flickr.com/photos/77085411@N02/sets/72157629408142929/ The writing, Futurama, on the roof of the largest car is in pencil, the writing on the bottom is in ink & pencil. The large metal car measures approximately 5.5" long 2" high & 2.5" wide. The smaller plastic cars measure from 0.5" to just over 2" in length. I am seeking any information of their potential value with the intent of selling. Ideally it would be nice to see them displayed for public consumption. Unfortunately the museums are only interested in donations. Thank You, Nicole
