Correct me if I am wrong, but there aren't to many of the "big" Giant Wheels left in the US is there.

I know Strates has one, Reithoffer, and Cammack, but that is about it isn't it?

I know a few shows owned or still own a Fabbri Wheel which I think is made in Italy?


Anybody got any "war" stories about moving/running them? What about lightning hits on these?

Read about a funnel cloud that went over Big A's Chance Wheel and messed it up pretty bad.

I know MBGS had a Fabbri wheel (I think I got some pics of it) but they were always having trouble in PC with it.
