quote:Originally posted by SueI can guarantee you that Larry Davis' Skywheel is in mint condition; all his equipment was. Probably JoAnn still owns it and still is trying to sell it. She sells a piece or two a year and all of it is perfectly maintained and stored. Larry was a real stickler for that.I don't think that Tommy bought Larry's Skywheel.

quote:Originally posted by SueI think there is confusion about Davis Enterprises and Larry Davis' show which was Carnival Time Shows. Tommy is Larry's son and he owns Davis Enterprises. The CTS equipmnent is owned by Larry's widow, JoAnn Davis. When Larry retired, both of his children started their own shows: Tommy has Davis Enterprises, and Debby Helm has Helm& Sons. JoAnn Davis owns all the equipment that was Larry and hers. Ownership did not go to her children. If they have any of the CTS equipment on their routes, they bought it from JoAnn or perhaps lease it from JoAnn. So she owns the Skywheel that is in great condition in storage, not Tommy. He bought another old one to fix up or for parts if he owns a second one already.
