Will the Spindle ever be Saved? Does any of it still exist?
The Berwyn Arts Council has acquired the only remaining cars, the RedVolkswagen and the Grey/Blue BMW, from
the original Spindle that was located in Cermak Plaza. The Arts Council in conjunction with the Berwyn Rt66
Museum are restoring these cars for a future exhibit here at the Museum. Save the Spindle will come true.
The Volkswagen will be on display at the Berwyn Rt66 Car Show this Saturday from 10 am till 4 pm. It is in very
rough condition after years of exposure, but it will be saved. Come on out and see this part of Berwyn's cultural
history for yourself.
Maybe you can help...
