I was @ their WQ in the fall before they began. And Last Friday I stop by. And it has come a Long way, and really looks great. Brad has lots of talent for these kind of projects. Just not enough hours in the day.

I met sr. and his son. always had a good time with him at the state meeting in Col. in jan.

I saw him, many a time, pulling a load in a white shirt and tie driving across I 70 in Ohio.

May He Rest in Peace! Cause there ain;t no piece on the lot.

I'm looking forward to seeing it as well. Hopefully it will make it out on the road by the 4th of July. I've always thought the Yo-Yo was one of the prettier rides to see at night.
I've never been "with it", just been an interested observer of carnivals for more than 50 years.
Johnny's United Shows..."A Family Tradition" and "All for Fun, Fun for All".
The carnival of my youth, which had roots that originated in my hometown.

Thanks for the nice comments. The color is a very vibrant orange called carousel red. It was used on the 69 pontiac GTO judges and also called hugger orange. Those pics were taken at the end of March. The trailer is back together with the tower on it and I am working on the tilt head now. Shop is always open Scott. Will try and post some current pics tonight. The ride came from the old Nolan show. It has been sitting at winter quarters for a long time waiting its turn in the shop. It had a wizzard paint job on the scenery, Rodeo YOYO. Anybody have any old pics? It was Kissel Bros. before Nolans bought it.
