Berwyn and the Berwyn Development Corporation for their assistance with this important project.
Save The Spindle
The Spindle cars have been moved to new restoration facilities near Rt66 in Downers Grove. The Volkwagen has
been partially disassembled and work has begun on rust removal and metal repair. The BMW is awaiting repairs.
As of June 10th, 2014 we have raised $2851.45 of our goal of $30,000. Many thanks to the fans and supporters
of the Spindle for their contributions, large or small.
We are in need of volunteers to assist in the restoration, with labor, parts and or specific services related ro the
reconstruction of the Spindle. If you can assist or just would like more information, please email us at
Berwyn Route66 Monuments
The restoration of the one remaining original Berwyn Route 66 monuments has not begun. We have all of the
pieces and they need to be cleaned, repainted and assembled. The neon cascading multi color lights with their
mechanical controler will be replaced with LED's and electronic controls. Again, we are looking for volunteers to
assist us with the restoration of this important Berwyn Rt66 icon. If you are interested, please email us at
