I picked this up today at an estate sale. My wife found it buried in a basement. Picture is of a "gondola" or an 80 foot ferris wheel disguised as a giant tire!

    This is awesome that you found this my friend. This tire still exists to this day. Although it is no longer a Ferris Wheel. Check out the history behind your find at the link below. Have an awesome one Jamesnhpd....
