Ozark Wildcat Car

When I see a Wildcat my first thought is to rush and get in line.  This car wasn’t going anywhere, but you know it had some kind of life.  A great retirement home for it in the  National Roller Coaster Museum.

Great Frontier Town sign

Aren’t round signs the best?  I love amusement park signs. Of course I knew and loved one of the Masters Of Amusement Park signs, though he did not make or paint this one. His are very distinctive.. Some of you knew him too. Bob Minick Sr.From the National Roller Coaster Museum of course.

John the Carousel Horse

Some of you may remember John the Carousel Horse from Clacton Pier, England.   Loved by many when he lived with us, the world will be able to see and admire him astride his pole when the National Roller Coaster Museum opens in Plainview, Texas.  He’s always been a showoff and will love meeting and greeting his fans.  Just looking at his picture makes me smile.

Memorabilia in the National Roller Coaster from the estate of Bill Crandall.  A dear friend of Bob’s and mine.  Truly Great Showman. ALWAYS in our hearts.
