They on your bucket list?

Yep.  I just need a used micro flux-capacitor for my time machine and I'm set to go.

Here's where I got mine. Not sure if they're still in stock though.

It's a little larger than I need, but I suppose I could jerry-rig it.

Now I just need to make sure all my currency is pre 1964.

I thought I had read, some years ago, that the Great Adventure cars had been changed and the 1964 cars became history.  Fifty five years is a very long time for a cable car.  I wouldn't want to get into one.  

Oddly enough, there is a news story, today, about British Columbia's Sea to Sky gondolas crashing to the ground after what appears to be a deliberate act by someone who cut the cables.  Thirty or more cars crashed but did so at night when the gondolas were idle.  It's a crime scene but, fortunately, nobody was hurt.  During the day the gondolas carry about 240 people at any one time.

I believe the NJ towers are all that is original to the Fair, with one car left that carries maintenance crews only.

I saw the story about the sabotage in Canada. That is unreal, considering how hard it probably was to cut that cable!

If they did replace the cars, I wonder if I could buy one of the originals from their warehouse...

It would make a nice breakfast nook.
